A baby girl was found abandoned on the garden side of a house in a subdivision in Parañaque City.
“Nakabalot ng jacket tapos naka-ano lang ‘yung ulo niya. May ano pa ‘yun, may pusod pa dito ‘yung bata. Gaganon-ganon na lang siya, siguro sa ano ng bata. Hindi na siya umiiyak eh,” Mak said.
Mak immediately told his employer Chris Pedayo that the baby was found. They also contacted the security personnel of the subdivision, who in turn contacted the barangay.
“Nakakaawa ‘yung bata diba. ‘Yung relief ko is nahanap siya, you know, it’s very unfortunate nga na nangyari at the same time, I’m happy too na safe hands ‘yung person na nakakita. Kasi maraming mga aso dito or, you know, baka kung hindi niya nakita ‘yan baka umulan bigla,” said Pedayo.
While waiting for the ambulance, the child was first taken to the house of Nicole Camins, the owner of the house where the baby was found nearby.

“Hours old lang kasi the umbilical cord nandoon pa, ‘yung placenta nandoon, nakakabit pa. So, I had to bring her inside, and ‘yung neighbor ko dito she’s a nurse kasi so she went over with first aid kits, ‘yung ganoon. So nilinisan namin ‘yung baby,” said Camins.
They did not notice anyone passing by or stopping in front of their house.
“’Yung son ko actually went up to me and he said, mommy I hear a baby crying. Pero when I listen to it, tumigil, so sabi ko, maybe it’s just a neighbor walking a baby ganon,” she said.
The baby was picked up when the barangay ambulance arrived, and they contacted the City Department of Social Welfare and Development in Parañaque.
According to the subdivision security spot report, a woman was noticed passing by around 8 a.m. near the place but they were not sure if she left the baby.
