A passerby has made a horific discovery in the eastern Croatian city of Osijek earlier on Tuesday morning. A man walking past a health care centre alerted police and emergency teams at around 6:30am, after he found a newborn baby left abandoned in a basket on the street.
“It was a new-born baby, weighing 1.800 grams and was 44cm in length. The child is vital and ok for now. We assume that the baby was born during the night and the umbilical cord was not cut properly so we fixed that. The baby is now in an incubator and that is all we can say at the moment,” said Dr. Igor Marijanac to daily Jutarnji list.
