MANILA, Philippines – Authorities at Manila’s airport found a newborn baby in a garbage bag that was apparently unloaded from an airplane that arrived Sunday from the Middle East, officials said.

The discovery was made by a maintenance crew that was preparing a Gulf Air flight for a return trip to Bahrain. The baby boy, who was covered in blood and filth was taken to an airport medical center at Ninoy Aquino International Airport, where he was cleaned up, examined and given a bottle of milk.

“After he was cleaned, he let off a soft cry,” airport nurse Kate Calvo said. “He was healthy, his vital signs were OK according to our doctors.

After the baby was determined to be in healthy condition, he was turned over to airport social workers, who will actively try to locate family to whom to give the baby. If family can’t be located, the baby will be put up for adoption.

Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman said she was angered by what happened, adding that police have been ordered to search for the infant’s mother, who could be criminally charged.

“I was simply outraged, no infant should be treated that way,” Soliman said.
