AFP - France was shocked Monday after the discovery of an underfed and dehydrated baby girl who had been forced to live hidden in a car boot, possibly since birth.
The little girl, aged between 15 and 23 months, was found by mechanics on Friday when her mother brought the car to a garage in Terrasson, in central France.
Police said one of the mechanics heard "bizarre noises, like moans" coming from the car boot and opened it to discover the girl, who was naked, lying in her own excrement, dehydrated and feverish. The girl was taken to hospital where doctors said she was suffering from delayed growth and mental problems.
The girl "was hidden, it seems since birth, and more seriously, she is suffering from significant (developmental) delays," local prosecutor Jean-Pierre Laffite told AFP.
The situation "defies belief," he said.
The girl's mother, 45, and her 40-year-old partner were arrested and charged on Sunday with child abuse and endangering a minor.
The two face up to 10 years in prison.

What’s a car boot???
I’ll take a stab at it: Somalis, Palis, ROP, or all the above.
Thanks — I’ve been reading this story for a week and keep imagining a baby in a boot — kind of like Puss n Boots.
The British call the trunk the boot.
Ill take a stab at it: Somalis, Palis, ROP, or all the above.
“The couple, who were both of Portuguese origin and both unemployed”
And yet you may still be right.
In a country without Christ, there is no end to surprising depth of evil expressions.
I grew up knowing many Portuguese families. They come from strong Catholic backgrounds and none would ever stand by and let a child be mistreated anywhere near this badly. Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, Irish, Scots, Filipino, Asian, Indian -I could go on. NONE of them would have allowed such a thing to happen. It is only the Islamists with their barbaric / uncivilised (nekulturney?) customs that allow such atrocities, especially upon female children.
Portuguese. That was a surprise. I wonder if they are immigrants to Portugal.
Waiting on a bomb “implant” maybe?
How could the poor baby’s “mother” be 45 years old?
There are so many questions here but I’m feeling sick now, so goodbye.
