The heartless father dumping his newborn baby
The man claimed that he and his girlfriend saw the baby girl turning purple and thought she was ‘incurable’, therefore he chose to get rid of her.
The baby, whose umbilical cord was still attached, was taken to the hospital after a passing elderly woman found her.
Screenshots of the CCTV footage shows Mr Li, who was wearing a red top, approached a dumpster with a paper bag in a neighbourhood in Xuanwei at 4:30pm.
The baby’s umbilical cord was still attached when she was found by an old woman. Her face and lips turned purple due to the cold weather, reported Yunnan Daily.
Onlookers sent the newborn to Xuanwei People’s Hospital and later transferred to the city community centre.
The couple were not married but Ms Li, who had not done any pregnancy checkups, was eight month pregnant when she went into labour.
Mr Li was arrested and detained for violating China’s criminal law. Ms Lai was released on bail.
