After Napping With Baby In Hospital, Mom Wakes Up All Alone. Then She Sees Her Baby’s Belongings Have Been Thrown All Over The Room
When the mom woke up, she was all alone, and her baby was nowhere to be seen.
Lory Beth Snyder and her daughter Lorelai had already had an exhausting day when they decided to take a nap at the hospital, where the 4-month-old was being treated for some excessive bleeding.
But Snyder was in for the shock of a lifetime when she woke up and found that she was completely alone.
The baby girl’s belongings had been strewn all over the room; her diaper bag and IV pole were nowhere to be seen; her crib had vanished; and Lorelai had gone missing.
Immediately, Snyder frantically began searching for her daughter and ran through the hallway, where she noticed a group of nurses laughing in another patient’s room.
There, in a complete stranger’s arms, was Lorelai.
In a now viral Facebook post, Snyder described the terrifying scene:
“When I found her she was in another woman's hospital room, in that woman's arms, with a room full of six or seven nurses just laughing and playing with her and Lorelai. I didn't know this lady. She was not a nurse or a doctor. Just another hospital patient.
I proceed to take Lorelai out of her arms. Even though she persisted that I return to my room, without Lorelai, she stated repeatedly that I needed to just go rest. I told her, no that I was fine and I would be taking my daughter back now.”
Three nurses followed Snyder back into her room, and so did the persistent patient.
“It was then that I looked up and saw that Ms Harris (the woman, patient, whom had taken Lorelai) had also followed us back to our room. She once again persisted that I return Lorelai to her, and that I rest. I told her no thank you, that we were fine,” Snyder wrote. “It was then that the nurses had to remove her from our room.”
Eventually, Snyder and Lorelai were transferred to the ICU, which had more strict security, but the scared mom still has no idea why Harris had been so insistent on taking her daughter.
“While I honestly don't know if Ms Harris intentions were intend noble, since she claims to of just been trying to care for Lorelai. I don't know what she herself was ill with, something that could make my daughter sick. I don't know anything! I don't know what her actual intent with my child was. What she did with her. Or even how long she actually had her,” Snyder explained.
“I contacted the police. Jonesboro PD stated that no crime was committed because Harris didn't ‘intend’ to rape or molest my child,” she added. “Whether or not the intent of harm was or was not there a child should never be taken in the way in which my daughter was.”
