A SURVEILLANCE camera captured the horrifying moment a teen mother threw her baby into a dumpster in New Mexico.
Cops say the 18-year-old mother, Alexis Avila, arrived in a white car before getting out and tossing a black garbage bag into the dumpster around 2pm on January 7.
The video shows three people searching the dumpster in Hobbs, New Mexico and miraculously finding the baby alive six hours later.
The baby was immediately transported to the hospital by police and remains in stable condition.
Avila has been charged with attempted murder and felony child abuse for the abandonment. Officials say she has confessed.
She is due to appear in court today.
‘SOMETHING WASN’T RIGHT’
Owner of Rig Outfitters and Home Store, Jo Imbriale, was asked by police to review security footage from Friday night that captured the horrific incident.
“Something wasn’t right, I saw the officers' faces, and they did not look right,” he told KOB.

“I said ‘What is it we are looking for?’ and she goes ‘We're looking for somebody who dumped a black garbage bag in your dumpster.’ I turned around, I said ‘please don't tell me it was a baby’.”
Imbriale added: “I was in shock just to see this.
“I can't sleep at night just knowing that this baby was just tossed in a dumpster like that. I'm sorry but who does that? That is evil. I don't have words for it.”
The news comes as two children, including a three-year-old, and an adult were stabbed to death in a Kentucky apartment over the weekend – leaving another adult injured.
Police in Boone County responded to the stabbing at a home on Overland Ridge shortly after 9pm on Sunday.
Inside, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office officials found two children and two adults with "multiple stab wounds."
The victims were identified as Katie Farrell-Pena, three, Nikki Romero-Pena, 12, and Monique Pena, 31.
The fourth victim, Matthew Farrell, 36, was stabbed in the torso, neck and upper body.
Matthew was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
"This is a relatively quiet area. We have had problems in the past, but in a place so densely populated — a subdivision like this so large — that's certainly not uncommon," Boone County Sheriff’s Office Lt Philip Ridgell said.
