A newborn baby girl who was abandoned in a bush by her 12-year-old mom in Yibin City, China’s Sichuan Province, has miraculously survived.
Local residents found the newborn baby weak but still alive and rushed her to hospital, where she has been nursed back to health.
They also notified the local police, who were shocked to discover that the baby's mother was just 12 and that she had given birth secretly under a bridge.
According to reports, the young mother had kept her pregnancy secret. She lives with her grandparents who told police that she was unwell on the day she gave birth.
However, on the way to hospital for a check up, the girl requested to relieve herself but "disappeared" under the bridge for 30 minutes.
The girl has reportedly refused to name the baby's father. Hospital workers and volunteers are helping to care for her baby.
Well-wishers have also donated money and dropped off baby supplies at the hospital for the newborn.
