Durban – A new-born baby boy wrapped in a blood stained T-shirt was found dead in a veld at the corners of Shari and Shaba Crescent in Lenasia, ER24 paramedics said on Saturday.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said paramedics from the ER24 Johannesburg South branch were alerted to the scene after members of the public had noticed the body among the refuse.

“When the paramedics arrived, they found the baby partially wrapped in a blood-stained T-shirt in a plastic bag. They quickly removed the objects, but the infant was already dead."

Meiring said the baby had succumbed to his injuries and was declared dead.

He said details surrounding the incident were not clear and the police were investigating.
