Rescue Newborn Girl
When she returned home from work at 9:30 PM, 25-year-old Mythri Manjunath was alerted by two youngsters about a baby girl abandoned on the pavement near her apartment complex. Mythri found the baby, covered in blood and just delivered, lying alone near the compound wall.

Shocked, she immediately called her friend, Sushma Satyanarayana, who lived in the same apartment. The two of them cleaned and covered the baby and went around asking for the whereabouts of her parents. In the meantime, they dialled for an ambulance – which arrived 45 minutes later. They asked for a few others in the area to accompany them, but they declined.

“We asked the people in the apartment, especially the men, if they could accompany us to the hospital. But nobody wanted to get involved in the case. They just stood there clicking photos,” Mythri told Bangalore Mirror.

The baby was taken to a hospital, admitted at around 12:30 AM. “The doctors were very helpful. They immediately started treating the baby and told us that we had brought her just in time, which had saved her life. Those words made all the effort worthwhile. We were so happy to that she would be fine,” Sushma said.

Following the baby’s admission to the hospital, the Mythri and Sushma gave their statements at the nearby police station. The police duly located the mother, who lived in a slum close to the Mythri’s apartment. The mother, an impoverished widow with two children, told the police that she did not want the baby and had thus left her by the apartment compound.

After much convincing by the police, Mythri, and Sushma, the mother agreed to take back the baby – who is now out of danger, thanks to the two women and the doctors.

The police told Bangalore Mirror, “Now that the mother has decided to take care of the child, we haven’t registered a case.” But they admitted that they were unsure of whether the woman would keep her word and take care of her daughter.


The Logical Indian applauds Mythri and Sushma for their efforts and presence of mind. We hope the newborn girl will remain safe and healthy, and her mother will be able to feed her family.
