Cases of baby dumping are still notoriously rampant in Malaysia.

Just 2 days ago a newborn baby boy was tragically found abandoned and without clothes nearby the Ocean Fresh Seafood factory in Kampung Peramu Tanjung Lumpur, Kuantan.

The crying baby was found with no umbilical cord and several ‘kerengga‘ (weaver ant) bites all over his body as he was left at a tree.

A witness to the incident, Norhazilawati Nasron, said that her neighbour, Mok Ti, found the baby at around 12.30pm on Saturday and alerted other villagers.

Mok Ti saved the baby by picking him up and wrapping him in a clean batik cloth. Not long after the police were called to the scene.

According to Assistant Commissioner Wan Mohd Zahari Wan Busu, the Kuantan District Police Chief, the infant was transferred to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Afzan (HTAA) Kuantan for treatment and is now in stable condition.

He claimed that based on the examination, the physician determined that the infant was delivered less than 3 hours before it was discovered.

Meanwhile, the blood smear found near the location where the baby was found has been taken by the forensic team from the Pahang contingent police headquarters (IPK) to enable further investigation.

“We are used to hearing (baby dumping) news and seeing pictures, but this time we saw a case of people abandoning babies right in front of our eyes. We are all stunned and shocked,” said Norhazilawati Nasron.

Police have also reviewed the Ocean Fresh Seafood factory’s CCTV footage but the surrounding cameras did not point towards the location where the infant was discovered.

In order to track the suspect, the police are currently gathering more information by visiting local private clinics.

We are saddened to hear of this tragic incident but glad that the residents of Kampung Peramu Tanjung Lumpur were quick to act responsibly at saving the newborn baby.
