Chinese mother sends baby in parcel to orphanage
A mailman from Fuzhou, China, received an order to collect a package and stow it with the rest of his deliveries in the truck. While on the road, he suddenly heard a cry from behind him and decided to take a look in the back. Inside the package, there was a baby wrapped in plastic bags!

The mother had packed the newborn into a box and addressed it to the local orphanage. When the stunned mailman discovered the screaming baby girl, she was already severely dehydrated. Paramedics rushed the baby to hospital.
