Dead Baby in Phone Booth

THAILAND – We’ve been seeing a lot of babies abandoned lately, in shopping mall toilets, gas stations and so on. The latest news report deals with a baby found in a phone booth.

The dead baby was placed in a reddish brown bag and dumped in a phone booth. The baby had only been one or two days old, was still attached to an umbilical cord, and wrapped in a blue t-shirt. The cause of death was suffocation.

While Siriporn Paengtangmo, 23-years-old, was making a call in a phone booth, she discovered the red bag and called police. A nearby temple is assisting by lending nine surveillance camera tapes to police to find the person who left the baby. It had only been dead for four to five hours when Siriporn found it. Will we keep seeing unusual places to drop a baby?
