The police are now looking for a man who abandoned a baby on the street in China at the wee hours, with the temperature plummeting to -20 degrees Celsius.
The chilling moment was captured by a CCTV monitor and it was released for the public to see if they know who the man is. The suspect can be seen putting the infant outside a hospital before running away in one of China’s coldest cities, Jiamusi.
The man carried the baby in his arms near a hospital in China.
He abandoned the baby at about 1:30 am during one of the coldest nights in the area.
Fortunately, a male nurse saw the baby boy and immediately took him to the
hospital’s neonatal department.
The baby is now recuperating and medical examinations show that he is in good health.
The hospital staff, upon hearing the news of the little boy found in the premises, immediately called the police.
The boy has been turned over to Jiamusi Children's Welfare Institution.
With the CCTV on hand, the police are hoping to find the suspect. Aside from the police officers, Chinese web users are helping look for the suspect as they spread the information and the video, in the hopes of finding out the reason why he abandoned his baby out in the cold. However, it remains unclear whether the man is the baby’s father or a family member.
This is not the first case of people abandoning their babies in China.
A new mother threw her newborn baby from the window of the hospital building. Fortunately, the baby landed on a canvas awning of a parked tricycle and survived.
In another incident in the country, the parents of a sick baby left due to high medical bills. The mother of the infant even said that she’d rather try for another baby than spend money for treatment.
The number of babies being abandoned increases due to poor sex education in the country. Moreover, many young mothers are left with no choice but to leave their babies because there are no child benefits in China, meaning it would be very hard for them to raise their babies.
Also, babies born out of wedlock can’t be registered due to the country’s strict household registration system. When they grow up, they would have a hard time receiving a proper education or social welfare. In some cases, since it would be expensive to have a sick baby in the family, the parents would resort to abandoning the baby than paying expensive medical bills.
