IPOH (Bernama): A newborn baby boy, with the umbilical cord still intact, was found alive on a table at an eatery in Jalan Maktab, Tanjung Malim, last Friday.

Muallim district police chief Supt Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said the baby was found by an 80-year-old senior citizen at 8pm.

"The man had wanted to have dinner at the eatery, which belongs to his daughter, after performing Maghrib prayers at a nearby mosque when he saw the baby on the table.

"The baby, weighing 2.34kg, was found wrapped in a grey towel. No notes were found," he said in a statement here Tuesday (Sept 10).

Supt Wan Kamarul Azran said the baby was healthy and in stable condition and currently placed at the intensive care ward at the Slim River Hospital.
