A passerby on Christmas day found a newborn who had been abandoned under a banana tree.
A footage which has since found its way on social media showed Aping Ping, 21, picking the newborn in a wooded area of a park.
Mailonline reports that Aping heard the baby’s cries through the trees before finding him wrapped in blankets and dumped on the ground.
My brother and I found a small baby that was abandoned under the banana tree on the 25th last month. He was about two or three days old.
We sent the baby to the hospital and he was put in ICU. He recovered from an infection and he’s safe. I think he is in everybody’s heart.’I really hope the boy’s family, whoever left him, can know what’s happened. I believe the baby can have a bright future. His parents are the best people for that.’Even though this was a cruel thing to do they should get to their child and make things right.
Authorities are still tracing the baby’s family and he has since sent the child to an orphanage.
