“They immediately called the Ekurhuleni paramedics to examine the child, who was then transported to the Far East Rand Hospital for further medical treatment.

“We request any person who might have more information as to the whereabouts of the mother of the child, to assist us,” he says.

Springs station commander Brig Thembeka Gwebushe was disappointed by the action that led to the child being abandoned.
