Newborn Mistakenly Declared Dead

A prematurely born boy found floating in a toilet at a Lodi home yesterday was mistakenly declared dead until a nurse heard his faint cries later at a hospital.

Lodi police say paramedics declared the baby dead at the scene before dawn yesterday and transported then child and the mother to
the hospital.

Once at the hospital, a nurse heard the infant stir from under the cloth covering him.

Both the mother and her son are now listed in stable condition, but the mother's troubles aren't over yet.

Medical workers discovered traces of methamphetamine and marijuana in the infant's blood and now police say the mother faces two felony child endangerment charges.
