A baby girl was found abandoned in Kampung Solok, Johor on 7 September. She is believed to be not more than 24 hours old when she was found with her umbilical cord attached, wrapped in an orange plastic bag and dumped in a drain in Jalan Kebun.
According to Tangkak District Police Chief, Superintendent Mohd Fadhil Minhat, officers on duty at the Tangkak Police Station received a call from a man informing them of the abandoned baby at 6.18pm.
The man claimed that his son had just returned from studying when he heard the baby crying in a drain located about 50 meters from his residence. He then wrapped the baby in a cloth, reported Harian Metro.
A video posted on Facebook shows the baby in the plastic bag right after she was rescued.
“Examinations carried out by medical staff found that the unidentified baby was in good health,” Mohd Fadhil said.
“She was then taken by ambulance to Tangkak Hospital for further examination.”
“The case is classified according to Section 317 of the Penal Code.”
Mohd Fadhil urges anyone with information to contact the investigating officer at 016-5220525 or 06-97812222 or report to any police station nearby.
