Woman in ten-year coma gives birth at care facility, police seeking DNA of workers

In December, a woman at Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix, Arizona who has been in a coma for at least a decade gave birth. This week, police served a warrant for DNA samples from the men who work at the facility to hopefully identify the rapist. A member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, the victim had never regained consciousness after a near-drowning. From CNN:

"The family obviously is outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda HealthCare," the family's attorney, John Micheaels said. "The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for."

Hacienda officials have called the situation "a deeply disturbing incident" and said they are cooperating with law enforcement and state agencies.

The company's chief executive officer, Bill Timmons, resigned Monday.
