BAGUIO CITY - A baby girl was found inside a bag abandoned on the streets of Barangay Holy Ghost, in Baguio City on Tuesday.

Residents were shocked to find the baby. She was drenched in rain and stained in blood.

"Narinig namin umiiyak parang pusa. Nakita namin, nadumi na siya, tapos basang basa, kaya humanap kami ng damit," one of the residents said.

They added that the baby looked like a newborn.

"Kaya nasabing kapapanganak kasi yung umbilical cord nakakabit pa, hindi pa tinanggal, parang minadali," said Murphy Maspil Sr., barangay chairman of Holy Ghost.

Before finding the baby, residents noticed a man and woman sitting and talking near the area.

The baby, who was brought to the Saint Louis University Hospital of Sacred Heart, is now in stable condition.

A couple residing in Holy Ghost is interested in adopting the baby.

Police are investigating who abandoned the baby.
