Police Rush Newborn Baby to Hospital After Finding It Abandoned in Bucket
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about how fast-thinking has saved an abandoned newborn baby and unfortunately we don’t think it’ll be the last.
According to The Mirror, police in Colombia found a child inside a bucket covered in amniotic fluid and with the umbilical cord still attached.
Officers were called to the scene after receiving a call from a member of the public. Rather than waiting for an ambulance, they rushed the baby to hospital.
