A 20-year-old woman has been arrested for allegedly dumping her two-hour-old newborn baby inside a plastic bag and running away. She abandoned her baby in a pink plastic bag that was later spotted by shocked locals in Wangjiaoqiao village, south-west China.
The child whose gender was not revealed, was rushed to hospital by police for emergency treatment but did not survive.
In an attempt to find her, Investigators who watched surveillance footage from the village discovered that 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 in a random spot.
Police located her home and arrested her. She reportedly confessed to abandoning the child just two hours after giving birth but gave no clear reason behind her action. If Police investigations show that she murdered her baby before discarding it, further charges will be pressed against her.
