ThailandThis newborn baby girl was found alive by people in Krabi Province after spending two days in the forest, with insects all over her body.
On the weekend, the villagers found the baby naked, lying on the leaves in a remote forest. When she was picked up, the little girl opened her eyes and started crying. People then put her in a clean place and looked after her while waiting for the police and ambulance.
There were bruises on the baby’s face, and worms and insects crawled all over the body. After being monitored by the hospital, the girl is in good health and there is no major problem. Everyone was surprised that she could survive for two days in a forest full of dangerous animals such as pythons, cobras and extreme temperatures.
A local police spokesperson said that they were looking for the girl’s mother, but because there were no security cameras in the woods, it was difficult to identify her. Police Colonel Prasit Yodthong added that recent hospital records in the area indicated that no women had given birth recently.
Yodthong said: “It is very likely that the mother came from another place, took the child and left in the forest.”
The police announced that they would prosecute those who abandon the girl. The police said: “Anyone who abandons a little girl knows that she may die.”
After Khao Phanom Hospital completes the monitoring of the baby’s health, it will hand her over to the Krabi Province authorities. The local police said that the child is likely to be placed in an orphanage.
