The American woman was grilled by police on the identity of the infant and how she came to have him after officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila discovered the child inside “an oversized belt bag” around her waist.
One of the spokesman for the Bureau of Immigration said;
“The infant was hidden in the oversized belt bag, and she did not declare nor present him to the immigration inspector.

“The suspect was not able to provide any documents showing she had the authority to take the baby onboard the plane”.
