Newborn baby abandoned by parents in thorny bushes survives (photo)


A newborn baby girl has miraculously survived after being tossed into a thorny bush and left for dead by her Indian parents.

The child was found in prickly bushes, naked, bloodied, and covered in dirt. She was abandoned in the city of Una in western India’s Gujurat state.

Luckily, a passerby heard the little girl screaming and found her— lying on the ground with several thorns puncturing her skin.

This is just another case of baby girls being rejected by their families in poor areas of India because they are considered to be a “curse” and a “financial burden.”

The Good Samaritan notified rescuers who took the baby to a nearby hospital where doctors said she would have died if she hadn’t been found, according to reports.

Medics said the child is recovering and is in stable condition.

Police are currently trying to find the parents responsible for intentionally abandoning their newborn, The Mirror reported.

Another similar incident like this was reported yesterday when a 21-year-old mother left her child outside a Texas apartment complex just hours after giving birth. The little girl was found that night after a passer-by heard her crying outside the Houston apartment complex. Authorities said the child had her umbilical cord ripped out. Albert Peterson, who found the newborn, said the baby was on the ground in a dirt-filled flower bed, covered head to toe in ants, with fluid leaking out of her umbilical cord.
