LAHAD DATU: A newborn was found under a house at Kampung Dasar Baru here.

The baby boy was found at about 7.30pm yesterday by the owner of the house after hearing the sound of crying and dogs barking.

District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Rohan Shah Ahmad said a 27-year-old woman claimed to have found the baby who still had attached placenta on the muddy ground.

He said the woman and her family members took the baby to the Lahad Datu Hospital Emergency Department for treatment.

"The doctor who treated the baby estimated that the baby was about three or four hours old before he was found.

"The paramedics also believed that the baby weighing one kilogram was born prematurely, which is about seven months," he said in a media statement, adding that the baby had been placed at the intensive care unit (ICU) ward.

He said investigations were being carried out in accordance with Section 317 of the Penal Code for whoever, being the father or mother of a child under the age of twelve years, or having the care of such child, exposes or leaves such child in any place with the intention of wholly abandoning such child, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to seven years or with fine or with both.

He said those with information into the case could contact the assistant investigating officer Sergeant Aspalainah Mohd Zain at 0111-9019728 or go to the nearest police station. - NST
