This Cop Saved An Abandoned Baby’s Life, But The Way She Did It Is Awesome.
Early this year, 59-year-old Edinora Jiminez of Santa Marta, Colombia, was out picking oranges when she thought she heard a cat. She quickly realized that the cries didn't come from a cat, but a newborn child. The umbilical cord was still attached.
Officer Luisa Fernanda Urrea was called to the scene. Awaiting medical assistance, Urrea followed her instincts and began to breastfeed the baby.
"I'm a new mother and I have milk," she told a local news source. "I recognized the needs that this poor little creature had."
"I think any woman would have given her nourishment in the same circumstances."
According to Colonel Javier Martin, the baby girl suffered from some lacerations and hypothermia, but was fortunately treated on time and is now in good health.
Following the discovery, police began an investigation of the biological mother's whereabouts, and the woman may be subject to attempted homicide. The infant was placed in the care of the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare (ICBF).
