MANILA -- A fetus was found inside a passenger jeepney plying the Pasig-Quiapo route before dawn on Saturday.

The fetus was stuffed inside a blue plastic bag, which was discovered by the driver, Rodolfo Velasco Jr., under the passenger seat.

He said he initially thought that the bag contained raw meat. However, upon opening it, he saw the feet of a fetus estimated to be about six to seven months old.

He said he did not notice who left the fetus in his jeepney.

Velasco immediately reported the incident to the Manila Police District.

The fetus was then brought to a funeral home. Authorities said the fetus will be given a decent burial. -- Report from Zandro Ochona, dzMM
