A new born baby girl was found in a black plastic bin-bag with a rusted knife sticking out of her back.
The baby who is thought to be two days old was rescued after a person who was passing by heard her cry in Posadas in Misiones privince, Argentina.
The person who was passing by, whose name is Diego Sebastian Penayo, opened the bag and saw that the baby had been stabbed in the back multiple times and the rusty knife was still sticking out of the baby’s back.
Diego Sebastian Penayo, who is a 31-year-old personal trainer, took the baby to a police station near their location and then the baby was rushed to the hospital.
The doctors were shocked to see the multiple knife wounds on the little girl’s small body, and she needed urgent medical treatment.
However, most of the stab wounds were on the surface and there were no major organs affected.
Two of the baby’s ribs have been broken.
However, the doctors have stated that the baby is making a good recovery and the nurses at the Hospital Maternal Neonatal have started calling her “Milagroos” which means “Miracle”.
David Halac, an administrator at the hospital, stated that the baby is now breathing on her own but is being treated with strong antibiotics to reduce the risk of any infection.
He also stated that the hospital is not in a rush to discharge her, until the legal situation of the child’s guardianship is resolved.
Police stated that they have traced the baby’s mother and she is currently in custody.
