Newborn girl found abandoned under tree


A newborn girl has been found abandoned under a tree in a park in Sunningdale, KwaZulu-Natal, paramedics said on Tuesday.

A woman and her son were walking in the park on Monday when they heard a baby's cries, said Netcare 911 spokesman Jeff Wicks.

They found the infant under a tree and immediately called paramedics, who found the child covered in mud and ants. The umbilical cord and placenta were still attached, Wicks said.

The baby was treated at the scene for mild hypothermia before being taken to the Netcare Umhlanga Hospital where she was in a stable condition under observation.
