PHUKET: A Phuket baby boy, thought to be just hours old and with the umbilical cord still attached, has been found abandoned near a dump site in Kathu.

Phongthep Joyjard, a respected elder who lives in the area, discovered the newborn while he was out exercising on Soi Saithong near the dump site on Tuesday evening.

He heard the baby crying and followed the sound to find him wrapped in a towel inside a fertilizer sack, police said.

The unnamed infant, who had suffered no injuries other than some insect bites on his face, was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital by officers of the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation section of Kathu Municipality.
