Authorities said that the baby was found by someone who passed by the suburbs of Chelyabinsk, a place located in central Russia.
Police reports said that if it took any longer, the baby would not be able to survive if he wasn't found by the passerby as he took a shorter route to his workplace.
According to the report, the passerby heard a baby's cry and decided to follow where the sound was coming from. He found the baby in a very poor state, lying in leaf piles and covered with many ants. The baby was also found with a still-attached umbilical cord leading to the conclusion that the baby was abandoned on purpose.
Authorities acted fast in rescuing the baby and called an ambulance as soon as possible so the baby could get the help needed in a near hospital found in Chelyabinsk. The baby's ant bites were treated directly. She was known to be in a good and stable condition, given that with ample care, will gain full recovery in the coming days. As of now, the police are still trying to locate the parents of the baby.
An article once said that the child crisis in Russia is much worse than that of the U.S. It has been specified that there are 118,000 children in Russia who are living in state orphanages. An estimated 600,000 Russian children do not live with the parents that gave birth to them. The majority of these children are being called "social orphans" which means that they still have at least one parent alive.
Many of the orphan cases in Russia are due to neglect or abuse, while others were abandoned by their families. In the year 2012 alone, Russian government data reported 6230 newborns who were abandoned.
The incident highlights the ongoing problem of child abandonment in Russia, where 118,000 children live in state orphanages and an estimated 600,000 children do not live with their biological parents.
It is imperative that the government and society at large take action to address the root causes of child abandonment, neglect, and abuse. This will ensure that all children have the chance to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment and that their rights are protected.
