A mum whose baby had been born with Down’s Syndrome dumped the tiny tot outside a hospital naked. The newborn girl was only spotted by a doctor crying in the rain is now fighting for her life after being rushed inside.

CCTV footage captured the moment the desperate new mum walks up with the infant. She is wearing a long coat with a hood in a bid to hide her identity, before bending down and leaving the tiny girl alone on the floor. The little girl is still in intensive care and doctors stress that her condition is “highly difficult”.

Mr Zhalgas Usenhanov, who raced inside with the baby and works in the intensive care unit, said he had never seen anything like this in his long medical career: “I ran outside, grabbed the baby and rushed to our department. It seems that the baby spent more than an hour lying on the cement under a pouring rain.” Police are now hunting the woman who dumped the baby.
