Emergency services arrived and rushed the infant to hospital where we was found to have 'a full of head of hair' and 'slightly reddish' but perfectly healthy.?
Social worker Carina Serafica said the baby was only a few hours old and that he had not been alive long enough to contract infections from rubbish and garbage in the road.

The person who found the baby, Sean Casiman, 21, said: 'Whoever left the baby like this has no heart! Don't fool around if you can't bear the consequences.
