WARNING: DISTRESSING CONTENT. The infant, found by villagers in a pink plastic bag, was rushed to hospital by police but doctors could not save the newborn.

A 20 year old woman has been arrested for allegedly placing her two-hour-old newborn baby inside a pink plastic bag and then abandoning it.

The mother is thought to have been uncertain about who the child’s father was, and having no stable income, decided to dump it, reports The Mirror.

The child, whose gender was not reported, was taken to police, who drove the infant to a hospital for emergency treatment.


However sadly despite all efforts the child was unable to be saved.

Investigators who watched surveillance footage from the village discovered the child was carried across town by a woman wearing a red coat and black trousers who later discarded the bag a distance from her home.

After police located her, she reportedly confessed to abandoning the child just two hours after she gave birth, but she gave no clear reason behind her actions, refusing to answer questions regarding the infant’s father.

If found to have murdered her baby before discarding it, Wang will be subject to further charges.

  • So very sad. What a shame that she didnt make a better choice for the child.


  • This is so unbelievably sad. Some people should really think twice before having kids.


  • This is so disgusting. She may have decided she didn’t want the baby for some reason, but why not leave them on someone’s doorstep? At least that way the baby may have survived. I hope she gets the treatment she deserves whether that be jail time for the death or psychological help if that is the answer.


  • This is too sad. To be so desperate to do this, is really tragic.


  • I don’t know how anyone who has gone through pregnancy could then turn around and dump their child hours after it was born! After laying your eyes on this precious part of yourself how can you not love it? This is just so callous and disgusting! I don’t care if she was single and didn’t know how to afford the babies care, you had unprotected sex, you carried the baby to term, you find a way, or at least give the baby up for adoption so someone else can love it and cherish it. I hope she faces the maximum penalty for this! As far as I’m concerned they can throw away the key!


  • What a terrible thing to do. What a heartless young girl. Im sorry for being so blunt. There is so much help these days for girls in this situation. Why couldnt she give this baby up for adoption. There are so many childless couples who would jump at the chance to give an unwanted child a loving home. Shame on you. I hope the authorities catch up with you.


  • This is so disturbing and leaves one with a heavy heart. How could someone (anyone???) packed up a child like a piece of garment and simply dumped it? Kids are so precious – it doesn’t matter what shapes or sizes, what color or nationality they are. They are God’s gift, period! The sad thing is, this 20-year-old lady might never comprehend what she had done wrong nor receive any punishment that’s suffice for such a heartless, hideous crime!


  • This is very sad. Imagine how this girl may have felt, whY she was going through to think dumping the baby was the thing to do. I’m not agreeing with the girls actions at all, I just think we should all think about both sides..
    Poor baby, rip.


  • The name, Wang, suggests this was in an Asian country. A human life isn’t worth much in these countries. So so sad. This baby could have been adopted and gone to a loving home where it was wanted. And to dump it so soon after birth, just 2 hours!!!


  • Very sad indeed ! Also very sad that this mother didn’t have the feeling she could ask for help in her struggles, it shows deep loneliness and desperation.


  • This happens in other Asian countries too. I notice the bag was open. I wonder whether or not the Mum opened the bag. It is a shame the Police hadn’t thought to call an Ambulance on the way. The baby might have survived. It also depends how long it was out in the open environment


  • One wonders what pressures this woman was under to believe the only alternative for her was to abandon the child – sounds like it was in China where strict rules are in place, and if she was unaware who the father was, perhaps she was also an unmarried mother who had nowhere to turn.
    RIP little one, I do feel so sorry for you, but I don’t think that adoption happens very often in China.


  • So sad that this dear little one didn’t even have a chance of life. There is always help for mothers who cannot keep their child. There are other people who are longing for a child and are willing to adopt and give that child a good home. There is always a better choice. Rest in peace sweet little one.


  • It is just so sad when a woman feels so alone and abandoned at a time that should be joyous and euphoric that she feels she has no alternative than to give up her baby. I’m not condoning the action of dumping the baby, better alternatives could have been employed, but these were (I assume) not open to her.


  • So sad the baby did not survive.
