Resident Allan Celso Jr. was the one who discovered the infant.
He shares, "Yung dugo, hinanap ko 'yung ano... sinundan ko. 'Yung lupa parang bagong takip lang. Pag hukay namin, nakita namin bata."
He also mentioned that the baby girl had a cut on her left arm, so he quickly rushed her to the hospital.
The baby is probably 8 months old
According to Dr. Roger Anatacio, who treated the infant, "Critical 'yan. Siguro eight months, more or less... Siguro tinatago 'yan nung nagbuntis."
Authorities still have no leads regarding the mother's identity. However, local residents believe that the mother might be a resident of Barangay Bagumbayan.
"May aso dito, wala naman kami nadinig na tumahol," Celso said.
Marivic Bonganay, the barangay chairperson added, "Unang beses po na nangyari sa barangay. Di po ito basta-basta napapasok. Alam niya po or kabisado niya po ang lugar na ito."
The baby was taken to the Bicol Medical Center, and will be transferred to the local DSWD once she is strong enough.
In the meantime, authorities say that charges will be filed against the mother once she has been identified.
Senior Police Officer 2 Edmundo Trinidad shares, "Pag na-identify na 'yung suspek, mafa-file-an 'yun ng frustrated infanticide."
