According to z report in the Daily Mail, the girl’s umbilical cord had not been cut, indicating that she was as young as a day old.
The baby was rushed to Lat Krabang Hospital, where nurses have attended to her while the police search for her parents.
“We believe that the parents might live nearby the area,” Lieutenant Colonel Samart Klinklao, inspector of Chalong Krung police station was quoted as saying.”
“Officers will check around the communities and ask the locals for more details. We will also check the CCTV cameras in the street to find who left the baby there.”
What’s this world coming to?
It’s hard to imagine how anyone can be so heartless as to leave a defenseless newborn baby in a field to die? Sadly, this is not unheard of practice in many countries.
Hopefully, police will track down her parents and serve justice.
In the meantime, let us pray for this little girl that she may fully recover from this and go on to live a happy and full life.
