MULTAN: A newborn was found alive in a heap of garbage in Dera Ghazi Khan on Saturday, Rescue 1122 officials said.

The ambulance service officials told The Express Tribune that a resident informed them that a woman had thrown a child wrapped in a plastic bag in trash at a street corner. The baby, however, was still alive when the rescue workers reached there and was moved to the district hospital.

The head of the hospital’s children ward, Shakeelur Rehman, said the child was in a critical condition as the birth was premature.
