Investigation underway after woman in vegetative state for over a decade gives birth


INSIDE EDITION- Police are investigating possible sexual abuse behind the walls of an Arizona nursing facility after a woman in a vegetative state for more than a decade gave birth.

The victim, who suffered a near-drowning incident years ago, was living at the Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix when she recently and unexpectedly welcomed a healthy baby boy.

“Our patients’ and clients’ health and safety is our No. 1 priority and we always cooperate, when asked by any agency, in an open and transparent way,” a spokesperson for the facility said.
