Babies are such an amazing gift, and becoming a parent, regardless of whether it’s for the first or sixth time, is one of the most rewarding and humbling experiences of one’s life.
But there is a heart-wrenching moment a newborn baby was rescued after being found hanging from a fence in a plastic bag.
The tiny boy, thought to have been abandoned by his teenage mum, was stuffed in a carrier bag that was inside a rucksack.
A binman was about to dump the bag in his truck when he heard faint whimpers coming from inside one morning in Lapu-Lapu City, Philippines.
Shocked bystanders filmed the infant who was barely conscious when they found him.
Unsure what to do, the onlookers gathered around the tiny baby who can be seen slowly opening his eyes and putting his hand to his mouth.
One person tries to keep him cool by fanning the air around him.
Paramedics were called and arrived shortly before rushing the infant to Lapu-Lapu District Hospital in an ambulance.
Also found inside the bag were a female school uniform blouse and a pair of bloodied short pants.
The uniform is worn by public schools for Grades 7 to 10 in the area, putting the suspected mother between 12 and 16 years old.
The baby is very fortunate that he was found because the trash collector was about to put the bag in the truck.
Emily Ng, a nurse at the hospital where the boy is being cared for, said several people have also come forward to as to adopt him.
“We do not have a name for the boy yet. But many people have heard his story and have made inquiries about adopting him,” she said.
