Durban – An abandoned newborn baby was found alive near a police station in Molweni near Durban on Sunday morning, KZN paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson, Werner Vermaak, said medics were called to the police station shortly before 08:00.

“It is understood that a member of the public found the little girl close to the police station and took her to there to call for help,” he said.  

Vermaak said they had rushed to the scene but by the time they arrived, the baby had been taken to a nearby clinic.

“Upon arrival, nurses were caring for the baby. She had to be transported to a hospital as she was in a serious condition. Paramedics from ER24 arranged with Hillcrest Private Hospital to assist with the stabilisation of the newborn.

"The hospital staff and doctors stabilised the newborn and will provide care until she is stable enough to be transferred to RK Khans Hospital,” he said.

The baby was only a few hours old.
