A woman who allegedly abandoned her quadriplegic son in a wooded area near a Philadelphia park has been hospitalised in Maryland and will be arrested as soon as she is released.

Nyia Parler (41), who is wanted in Pennsylvania on aggravated assault and other charges, was found in an apartment in Silver Spring, and was taken to hospital.

Her 21-year-old disabled son was found by a passer-by lying on leaves and covered by blankets with his wheelchair and Bible nearby, Philadelphia police said.
