On the 20th, the day before the Lunar New Year holiday, a baby with the umbilical cord still intact was found wrapped in a plastic bag at a convenience store in a forest in Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do. The mother of her child is in her 20s, and it is known that she abandoned her baby after giving birth while visiting Gangneung with her friends.
According to JTBC on the 26th, on the afternoon of the 20th, when the weather was cold below freezing with heavy snow, a report was received to the police saying, “I heard a baby crying near the trail, but I don’t know where it is.” The reporter is a tourist who visited Goseong in Seoul. He recalled, “The baby cried really loudly (at first), but as the voice gradually faded, the end of the voice cracked.”
The dispatched police found the baby in the woods more than 30 meters away from a deserted road after a search. At the time, the baby’s body temperature was 34 degrees and was hypothermic. The paramedics, who received the baby from the police, put a warm saline pack on the baby as a hot pack, hugged the baby tightly, and shared its body temperature. Fortunately, the baby quickly regained its warmth. The paramedics at the scene said, “Judging from the state of the umbilical cord, it is estimated that the baby is between 3 and 7 days old. It was snowing a lot and it was a miracle that the baby was found because it was just before sunset.” The reporter said, “When we heard that the baby was found, we all sat down and cried. Everyone was taking off their scarves to give the baby,” he said.
On the 21st, the day after the baby was rescued, the police arrested the real mother, A, at a house in Ansan, Gyeonggi Province around 3:00 pm. In a police investigation, Mr. A stated, “It was a baby born to me by an ex-boyfriend, and I had no intention of raising it from the beginning.” The police are investigating Mr. A on charges of infant abandonment and attempted murder.
