A newly born 5-day old baby was found by residents after a group of cats gathered creating loud cries of noise at a spot near the abandoned baby that was left to die in Mumbai, India.
The police making the investigations said that their attention was called by residents who found the baby after the abnormal behaviors the cats were spotted doing.
The left-to-die baby was saved by a women-led police team from a suburban Mumbai neighborhood on Sunday, November 14.
Police arrived where they found the infant lying inside the drain. They said the baby dressed in a flimsy shirt and soaked in sewage water was wailing in distress.
Two police officers scooped her out, wrapped her in a cloth, and rush her to the hospital.
“When we lifted the baby out, she was freezing; her arms had turned blue. We asked for some warm water and cloth to clean the baby,” Police Constable, Sheetal Sonawane told the Times of India newspaper.
Doctors at the Rajawadi hospital now say the baby is “stable”.
“Doctors are constantly monitoring her health. We will keep her under observation for the next few days,” Dr Vidya Thakur, the medical superintendent of the hospital said.
