New lease on life for dis­carded baby

The Witness - Wheels - - NEWS -

Pine Ridge Neigh­bour­hood Watch mem­ber Dy­lan Jenk­ins looks at the new­born baby that was dumped in a plas­tic rub­bish bag in Pine­town yes­ter­day. A se­cu­rity guard, alerted by the shrill sound of a baby cry­ing, had gone look­ing for the source of the sound. She fol­lowed the cries to a pile of rub­bish, and ripped open the bag to find the baby in­side. The in­fant was rushed to the Cromp­ton Hos­pi­tal in Pine­town.
