A newborn baby has been rescued after it was dumped in a black bin bag on the side of the road.Passers-by desperately tried to save the baby – which still had its umbilical cord attached.
One woman donned protective gloves and delicately tried to manoeuvre the baby onto a blanket. The baby’s umbilical cord was still attached.
Witnesses said the bin liner contained additional contents, thought to be the mother’s placenta. Amazingly, the baby has survived its traumatic entry into the world and is being looked after in hospital.
