The baby girl had hypothermia. She had likely been in the rain for two to three hours.

Paramedics on Tuesday saved a one-day-old baby found in the rain next to the Puma Stadium in Witbank, Mpumalanga. A security guard found the baby in the field near the stadium’s main entrance at 5.25 pm and paramedics were called, ER24 spokesperson Annine Dormehl said in a statement.

Paramedics immediately changed her into dry clothes and took her to Emalahleni Private Hospital.

Dormehl said that it was believed the baby was born in a hospital, but no form of identification had been left with her. Police would be notified.
