Newborn found in flower bed dies in hospital

SHANGHAI police are investigating the case in which a premature baby was found in a roadside flower bed on Tuesday and later died in a local hospital.

The abandoned girl, less than a month old, was in a coma and had an oxygen tube in her nose when she was found by a passer-by on Xiangyin Road, Yangpu District around 8:30pm Tuesday.

The baby was inside a plastic bag with a sign of Shanghai First People's Hospital and two oxygen bags by her side, witnesses said. Her feet had turned blue and she was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Police urged her parents to claim their child as soon as possible to avoid criminal charges.

The baby's condition deteriorated yesterday and she died of complications due to premature delivery, said doctors of the Xinhua Hospital.
