He was abandoned in a ditch… Friday evening, two brothers aged 12 and 14 who were waiting for their mother at a bus shelter, in the town of Montgiscard near Toulouse (Haute-Garonne) suddenly heard baby cries, reports The Midi Dispatch. That’s where they came across this infant.

Once there, their mother called the emergency services, who took the newborn to Purpan hospital. According to the first examinations, the child had been born for only twenty minutes when he was discovered in this ditch. His days are not in danger.

While carrying out their neighborhood survey, the gendarmes quickly focused their doubts on a 17-year-old young woman. After denying her pregnancy, she reportedly panicked and threw the baby over the hedges at the back of her house. Shocked, she was also taken care of.
