Newborn baby dumped in Durban bathroom bin

It was a busy start to the week for Netcare 911 paramedics after responding to reports of an abandoned baby at the Commercial Towers Building in Durban.

Discovered in the second floor bathroom, the newborn baby boy was wrapped in two black plastic bags and dumped in a rubbish bin.

The advanced life support paramedic and his team worked fervently to stabilise the child that was deprived of oxygen.

After a few minutes he responded to the treatment and was taken to a Durban hospital for further care.

The case is being investigated by SAPS.
