Police say doctors were able to save “Baby Yocca,” who weighed 1.5 pounds at birth.
Doctors reportedly told authorities the baby boy’s quality of life “will be forever harmed.” He will need a medical foster, have to stay on oxygen and require daily medication.
Yocca is accused of causing medical issues to the child’s lungs, eyes and heart with the hanger. Doctors said other medical issues will arise as he gets older, according to police.
In 2014, 59 children were aborted in Michigan after 24 weeks, according to the Michigan Department of Community Health.
