Mother of the Year? Cops Say Woman Left Quadriplegic Son in Woods in Philly For 5 Days So She Could Visit Boyfriend

Several readers sent us this story and I really have no words to describe how awful this mother is if the allegations against her turn out to be true.

More from the Pocono Record:

A woman left her quadriplegic son, who has cerebral palsy, in the woods for several days and went to visit her boyfriend in Maryland, police said Saturday.
The 21-year-old son was found lying in the leaves covered with a blanket next to a wheelchair and a Bible near Cobbs Creek Park in southwest Philadelphia on Friday night.
Police described the son as severely disabled and said he was unable to communicate how he got there. They said their investigation indicates he was left there Monday, when his mother boarded a bus for Montgomery County, Maryland.
The son was hospitalized with dehydration, malnutrition, a cut to his back and eye injuries, Lt. John Walker said.
“This kid’s obviously a fighter,” Walker said. “To see that kid laying there, it’s heartbreaking to see that another human — especially a mother — could treat someone like that.”
