KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A newborn boy, with the umbilical cord still intact, was found alive in a rubbish bin in front of a convenience store in Pandan Indah early Saturday (May 25).

Ampang Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Mohd Zaid Hassan said the infant was found by a security guard when he was patrolling around the area at 6am.

"A dog belonging to the guard suddenly started barking out loud, which led him to the rubbish bin where he heard the baby's cries. 

"When he checked and say the newborn, he immediately called the police for help,” Mohd Zaid said in a statement Saturday.

The baby was sent to  the Ampang Hospital for a medical examination which found  no injuries to his body, he said, adding that police were tracking down the persons responsible. - Bernama
