A street vendor in India got the shock of his life when he found a two-week-old baby inside a bag he stole hoping it contained cash.
Kishor Kale was selling nail polish to women on a train journey, from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus to Belapur, in Mumbai, India, when he noticed an abandoned bag sitting on the side of a carriage.
Hoping it had money and other valuables inside, Mr Kale picked up the bag and exited the train.
But when Mr Kale later unzipped the green bag on the station platform he found a baby’s hand reach out to him.
Shocked, Mr Kale tried to flee and further abandon the little baby but a vigilant station ticket collector caught him.
Soon, a crowd assembled and everyone was staring at the adorable 15-day-old baby sleeping inside the bag.
The police arrived and detained Mr Kale thinking he was abandoning his own baby. They are now investigating the story.
Doctors at the Bhabha Hospital, in Mumbai, quickly declared the baby healthy and he was temporarily sent to Asha Sadan – a children’s home in Mumbai.
