A female police officer has gone above and beyond the call of duty to save this little baby girl.

Luisa Fernanda Urrea, a police officer in La Marina, Colombia, was called to a case where locals had discovered a baby on the ground alone.

While waiting for medical assistance, the new mum breastfed the hours-old baby, recognising that she was in need of hydration.

She told the local media, “I’m a new mother and I have milk and I recognised the needs that this poor little creature had.”

Medics said that without her maternal support, the hours-old baby might have succumbed to starvation and hypothermia.

She shrugged off any compliments, saying, “I think any woman would have given her nourishment in the same circumstances.”

Police commandant Javier Martin reported that the baby had been abandoned soon after birth, and that she still had her umbilical cord attached when found.

“The girl had some lacerations and was suffering from hypothermia,” he said.

“However, she was treated quickly and is now in good health.”

Police are searching for the mother, and the baby is being cared for by the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare, which is searching for an adoptive home.

Poor little bubba. What an awesome woman though!

  • What a fantastic thing for her to do. She probably saved the life of the little baby.


  • Stories like this give me hope that the Human race may not be doomed after all. So much injustice and suffering going on every day, this is an oasis of kindness that warms my heart.

    Thank you for sharing.


  • Truly amazing story. That baby was so lucky to have been found by this wonderful woman. I hope the baby girl has a wonderful life.


  • The baby was so lucky that a breastfeeding Mum was allocated the call.
    They say Fate works in mysterious ways. It is definitely true in this case.
    It is a strong possibility that she was hoping somebody would find and take care of her baby. I hope they locate the Mother. Not only is it neglect but the Mum may be in need of urgent medical /phsyciatric assistance too.


  • How kind of that lovely police officer. Bless her.


  • It was so good of her to do so.
    But how can a mother abandon a child??? :-(

    • yeah it is a sad situation indeed for all involved. hopefully they can sort this out and find out the circumstances.


  • i would not have guessed that this is how the story was going! wow! what an amazing woman!


  • Poor little baby. Luckily she was found and is now ok. Well done to the officer.
