“We estimate the girl to be about two to three days old, she was found in good health. She has been handed over to the Addington Hospital. The resident who found the baby waved down a passing police officer who called for an ambulance,” said Fourie.

Earlier this year (January), paramedics rushed to the scene where a newborn baby boy had been dumped in a rubbish bin of a public toilet, on the second floor of the Commercial Towers building.

At the time, the former Netcare 911 spokesman, Chris Botha, said paramedics found the newborn wrapped in two black plastic bags.

Miraculously, the baby survived.

“The advanced life support paramedic and his team worked fervently to stabilise the child who had been deprived of oxygen. After a few minutes the child responded and medics transported the baby to a hospital,” said Botha.

Then in November, the body of a newborn baby was discovered in a rubbish bin at the corner of Bond Road and Cross Street in Durban Central.

Rescue care paramedics were called to the scene.
