Baby found dumped, covered in ants

PHUKET: Police are searching for the mother of a baby found dumped in grass in Moo Baan Muang Thong Thani, on Sakdidet Rd, on Thursday. The baby girl was found, covered in ants, by a couple passing by on a motorcycle, who heard her cries. They picked her up and rushed her to Wachira Phuket Hospital. Pol Maj Pissanu Poonwong of Phuket Town Police Station said the baby was thought to have been born only about four hours before she was found at around 6 pm, with the umbilical cord still attached. “It’s very difficult to find her parents because we cannot get more information from the couple who found her. They just dropped the baby at the hospital and left. They did not leave their names or address,” Maj Pissanu said. Wachira Hospital will take care of the baby until she gets stronger. Later, if the mother cannot be found, the baby will be handed over to the Phuket Provincial Public Welfare Office. Anyone wishing to apply to adopt the baby should contact Wachira Phuket Hospital (Tel: 217294-8) or the Phuket Provincial Public Welfare Office (Tel: 212726).
