Udupi, Aug 10: Civic workers in Udupi today rescued a newborn girl which was dumped in a garbage bin near Chittaranjan circle in the city. The child was immediately shifted to the district government hospital. 

"The girl baby is out of danger and is doing well," Legal-cum-Probation Officer at District Child Protection Unit (DCPU), Prabhakar Achar, said.

It is learnt that the Pourakarmikas cleaning the street near Chittaranjan circle heard the cries of a baby coming from a garbage bin. On approaching the bin, they were shocked to see a newborn girl kept in a paint box. They alerted social worker Nityananda Volakad who in turn informed Udupi women police station Sub Inspector Violet Femina and Udupi Town police station Sub Inspector Sakti Velu.

Prabhakar Achar with help of police shifted the newborn baby to a hospital. Prabhakar said the baby's health would have deteriorated if she would have been exposed to rains for another two hours. Achar declared that the abandoning of the baby in a garbage bin was an unacceptable and heinous act.

"The mothers who cannot look after their babies should place them in 'Mamatheya Thottilu' kept in front of B R Shetty hospital in Santhekatte and Balika Kendra in Nitturu," he said.

Absolutely heartbreaking! He was supposed to be a brilliant All Rounder. Was to be engaged soon to a doctor.
The facilities at the so called Medical College hospital where this tragedy happened are so pathetically insufficient that it is a shame to the Medical profession!
God give strength to the grieving family.

Such a sad story. A life lost before it began. Clotting of blood in the veins is a very well known complication of COVID. Although patients may recover from covid symptoms, the risk of sudden death from clot migrating to lung, heart and brain remains for a considerably longer time.
