Sabah Cleaner Found Dead Baby in Plastic Bag, Initially Thought to be Chicken Meat

You might be familiar with the saying, “the smallest coffins are the heaviest”. It seems like the fundament of the saying is just as true regardless what form of a container the child’s body is kept.

This morning (Jul 28), when a cleaner was sorting out rubbish in one of the bins at a Penampang apartment, Sabah, she found a red plastic bag thought to be carrying discarded chicken meat, FMT reported.

Without thinking much, she took the bag among the trash but realized it was much heavier than it should be.

The lady then became suspicious, thus putting the bag down on the floor to inspect the content. To her surprise, she found a dead baby girl with its umbilical cord still attached.

“Medical officials found that the baby was already lifeless,” he said.

We hope the police could get to the bottom of this. RIP, little child.
