doctors found multiple scratch marks
A newborn baby girl has been found after being dumped in a rubbish bin just hours after she was born.
The police of Sheikhpur Ahir Police Station in Rajasthan’s Alwar district found the baby on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.
They found her at approximately 7 am in the Rabana village of Bhiwadi.
The villagers informed the police after they heard the baby’s cries coming from the rubbish bins behind their houses.
They reached the baby girl in 15 minutes and found her wrapped in nothing but a piece of cloth.
They then rushed her to the hospital as she had difficulty breathing.
After an examination, doctors found multiple scratch marks on the baby’s body, due to being laid in the rubbish.
They also concluded that she had been lying there for around two hours, indicating that she was only born at around 5 am on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.
After the newborn’s breathing difficulties subsided, she was referred from the CHC Tijara Hospital to the Alwar Children’s Centre.
However, the identity and the whereabouts of her mother are reportedly still unknown.
Newborn babies are often unwanted by the parents and families after they are born. Therefore, it is not uncommon for them to be either sold or abandoned.
Just recently, an Indian boatman rescued a newborn baby girl that was left in a box floating in the Ganges.
The baby was just 21 days old, and was found by boatman Gullu Chaudhary who heard her cries at Dadri Ghat, Ghazipur.
Many people heard the child’s cries. However, Gullu was the only one who came forward to help.
Speaking of the incident, Gullu said:
“But I rushed to rescue her. When I opened the wooden box, I found her.”
According to reports, the baby’s horoscope chart was also in the box, along with a note that read: “Daughter of the Ganga.”
Gullu found the newborn wrapped in a red cloth. He briefly looked after her before officials took her to the hospital.
Gullu is now being branded a hero following his rescue, and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath applauded him for saving the baby’s life.
The newborn was taken to a children’s shelter to be cared for while officials searched for her parents. However, Gullu said that he would have liked to adopt her. He said:
“I have a daughter and two sons.
“I could have taken care of the child, but the district child welfare officers have taken her to the hospital.”
