    Baby Unknown

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

"Not more than a day old, she was left in the cold, on that concrete platform. Her umbilical cord was clipped off. It was not even dry. She was crying so loudly."

They call her Baby Unknown. She does not have a name yet because her family abandoned her as soon as she was born. Rescued by a good samaritan, this baby girl was turned over to the Basavanagudi Police Station. She has been admitted to the hospital where she is fighting to overcome serious respiratory distress and infection.

A passerby rescued a newborn baby abandoned on the road

Inspector Shashidhar and SI Pavitra were stunned when a man entered the station with a newborn claiming that he found her on the street. After hearing him out, their hearts went out to the little one, who was clearly in distress and needed medical attention.

"He was going home after a late night at 2:00 AM when he heard a baby crying. He noticed a bundle on that platform around Armugam circle. It is right in the middle of the road. He had the driver stop the car to look for the mother or just anyone. Once he realized what was really happening, he rescued the baby and took her home."

The baby was in distress, so the police took her to the hospital

The man who rescued Baby Unknown took her to the police station the next morning. SI Pavithra along with another constable immediately rushed the baby to Cloudnine for an evaluation. Constables have been taking turns to stand watch outside the NICU, while the Inspector and SI have taken the responsibility for her care until she can be handed over to Shishu Vihaar.

"She had severe respiratory distress and an infection because of the cord. They have her on the ventilator. She needs to be in the hospital for a few weeks. The government cannot bear expenses as we brought her to a private hospital. It was the nearest, and she needed immediate care."

We can all be her family during this terrible time

The search for a family continues. The police are attached to this little one and are praying for her to recover. Inspector Shashidhar is bearing all the medical expenses, but with bills amounting to Rs. 4 lakhs, even he needs some help. Cloudnine Hospital and its team of doctors have provided the best possible fee with discounted service charges and priority care to help this little one recover.

Baby Unknown is 4 days old, and she has already gone through so much trauma. Let's take inspiration from the amazing people at the Basavangudi police station and help this newborn make it.
