Abandoning children here, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
Two days ago, the temperatures dropped sharply, a newborn baby girl of not yet 24-hours old was found, abandoned, outside the workers’ shack in Yunling, the woman, Hsieh went to check on her field, had found the newborn, she notified the police immediately, the infant was taken to the hospital immediately, and suffered mild hypothermia, but her vital signs are stable.
Two afternoons ago, when Hsieh went to check her land, she saw that there was a package outside the workers’ shack, she went closer, and found that it was a newborn infant girl. Back then, the temperature was 60.8˚F, and, there was a white towel around her, without any note, or anything else that can help identify her, Hsieh worried that the infant might become hypothermic, she’d carried her to the worker’s shacks.
Hsieh said, that the moment she’ held the infant girl in her arms, she’d started to cry, she kept soothing the child, and took off her own coat, to keep the baby warm; she saw that the child is very cute, and she still hadn’t any grandkids yet, wanted to take her home quietly, but, she’d thought about the parents of the child, and, decided, “it’s best that I turn her into the police”.
The police rushed the infant to the nearby hospital, and the assistant manager of the hospital, Huang pointed out, that the child wasn’t full-term, she was about 34 or 35 weeks, weighed at 2,040 grams, a bit light, the body temperature was also, a bit low, without any fats on her, and the umbilical cord was still there, believed to be no more than 24-hours old.
Huang said, that the umbilical cord seemed to have been cut by the mother herself, and the wound had been taken care of with cotton threads; and now, the infant is very active, is placed in ICU for continued observations.
Because there was no blood on the towel that the infant came in with, the medical staff believed, that the infant had been wiped down elsewhere; based off of the temperatures of two days ago, the child was not kept warm, and could well freeze to death, “gladly, she wasn’t supposed to die, and someone came to rescue her”.
The police said, that the abandon site was at the side of the roads where the cars are speeding by, plus the infant wasn’t crying, she couldn’t be easily discovered. The infant had a lot of hair, with a hint of brown in her longish eyebrows, without any birthmarks on her body.
And gladly, this infant girl was found in time, and, she’s a survivor, after all, she was left, in the coldness and still survived, and that may mean, that she’s destined for something great some day, who knows…
