A newborn baby was discovered in a local dumpster in India, covered with leaves and ants; she was left there to die by her ungrateful parents.
The local authorities believe that the baby girl was dumped by her parents who were hoping give birth to a male child. When the parents found out they had a girl, they decided to throw her in the dumpster due to the fact that male children are given priority in India, as it is believed that they will take care of their parents when they grow old.
The good news is that she is now in a local hospital and is being taken care of. The baby was discovered by a tea stall owner in Bhopal, a city located almost in the centre of India.
Her hero, Dheeraj Rathore said that as he was passing through the street he heard cries of a baby and when he approached the dumpster he found the girls head sticking out of the garbage, surrounded by plastic bags, covered in ants and leaves.
