In a heart-wrenching incident reported from Visakhapatnam, a newborn baby girl who was abandoned in a garbage dump was rescued by the hospital staff of Sri Venkateswara hospital on Friday.
Reportedly, at 5:30 am, the hospital staff heard a baby crying in the vicinity. The search led to shocking visuals when they found a newborn baby girl dumped in the garbage, covered with rubbish and plant litter. By then, the little one had suffered an injury to the back of her head and also developed severe rashes her body, owing to ant bites.
The chief doctor of the hospital, after being alerted, had rushed to the spot to offer the necessary first aid.
