Miami Police Department Launches Anti Street Violence Campaign

A woman in a vegetative state has given birth at an Arizona nursing facility, prompting a sex abuse investigation, KPHO reports.

The patient has been in a vegetative state since a near-drowning incident more than 10 years ago, according to a report from CBS 5, the local television station.

"None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth", the employee said. "And they didn't know what was wrong with her", the source said.

The woman, who has been at the Hacienda HealthCare facility in Phoenix since she almost drowned more than a decade ago, gave birth to a baby boy on December 29. Police fear the woman had been raped in her hospital bed and impregnated by a mystery attacker.

No suspects have been identified but sources told the news outlet that the patient required round-the-clock care and that many people had access to her room.

The New York Times and NBC News reported that the Phoenix Police Department had opened an investigation into allegations involving the facility but the agency would not discuss the details of the case or how long they had been looking into it.

Having renewed with Dorados de Sinaloa , he was set to travel to Mexico after the check-up, but was delayed after the discovery. Diego Maradona has reportedly been rushed to hospital after suffering from a stomach bleed.

The alleged incident occurred at Hacienda HealthCare, a facility that provides long-term health care for children and young adults with chronic illnesses and intellectual and developmental disabilities.

"From what I've been told she was moaning". Her baby is healthy.

"They added: "[She had no way to defend herself].

"[She was] not even able to communicate the fact that she was pregnant", the source said.

She also says the facility has changed protocol this week.

Hacienda HealthCare spokeswoman Nancy Salmon said: "Hacienda Healthcare has been in business in the valley for over 50 years, and has an outstanding reputation providing high quality specialised care for our patients". "While federal and state privacy laws prohibit us from publicly discussing a patient's health or case, Hacienda has and will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement and all the relevant regulatory agencies regarding this matter".
