A pregnant woman has been attacked by her boyfriend and forced to deliver her baby seven weeks early after he doused her in flammable liquid and set her on fire.
30 year old Andrea Grinage was found with critical burns over much of her body around 11.45am Friday in Capitol Heights, Maryland, when police and fire crews responded to reports of a fire.
She had been set on fire by the father of her unborn baby who, according to Andrea’s father, was not ready to take responsibility of his baby.
Andrea Grinage was forced into labour by the horrific trauma and gave birth to a baby girl, named Journey Aleah, seven weeks early.
Mother and baby are both recovering.
Before the horrific incident, Andrea was already the mother of two boys, ages 8 and 15. She is pictured below with her boys.
Scense of crime
Arthur Grinage Sr said that the incident stemmed from the pregnancy and the boyfriend’s immature attitude towards fatherhood.
