The adopted daughter of MLB legend Dennis Eckersley allegedly gave birth to her baby in a freezing tent, before leading police to the wrong spot to find the infant.

Cops believe Eckersley was high on drugs. She denies she is using.  When they asked why she lied, Eckersley reportedly said, “What do they tell when a plane goes down? Save yourself first.” 

Her boyfriend was with the woman at the time police arrived. And may also face charges.
