A baby girl was abandoned on the roadside and found alive by a passerby who heard the infant’s cries.
American expat Eric Ransdell was walking home when he heard the baby crying from a pile of rubbish near his flat. He searched the area and discovered the girl – who was just hours old and still had her umbilical cord attached – covered with a black and red cotton blanket next to old tyres.
The child was rushed to a hospital where she was admitted to intensive care and is now recovering while police try to identify her mother.
Eric, who visited the girl in the hospital after finding her last Thursday, said she is a “fortunate baby”.
