Mother accused of suffocating baby
A 22-year old West Virginia woman is facing charges after police say she tried to smother her 4-month old son after he was admitted to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. Rachel Nelson of Costa is accused of causing the respiratory issues her son was having. At one point the father alerted nurses that the child was not breathing and performed CPR until the nurses could take over. The child was revived, but again had abnormal breathing in the ICU. Investigators say Nelson admitted holding the boy to her chest until he stopped breathing. The investigation involving the baby and his mother has grown wider, and six visits to a Charleston hospital are being analyzed.
