All hail the heroic actions of the gentleman (who turned out to be the baby's father) & the other passers by who used their shirts & got towels II keep the baby found in a Calgary dumpster warm. Can you believe how sick the mother must have been, she says she didn't know she was pregnant, neither did the baby's father. But that doesn't give her the right II put the baby in a garbage bag in hopes that it will suffer. I mean just talk about awful.
Common sense should have prevailed. She should have taken the new baby over to a friend's. Or perhaps called a taxi or an ambulance. Or even taken the child II the nearest medical facility, where arguably both she & the newborn would have received the finest in medical care. Even if she wanted II abandon the baby, at least take it to a hospital so that it can have at least a chance in life.
