The video shows two men, one wearing an overall and hardhat, inspecting the box. They found blankets and a milk bottle, as well as a handwritten note.

According to the note, the baby girl was born on August 4 but no other information was provided about her parents or the reason for abandonment.


The incident has since been reported, and investigation officers in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region are on the search for the baby's parents.

The baby was taken to the Huanjiang People's Hospital for a checkup and medical personnel confirmed that she had no congenital disabilities and was in good health.

She has since been placed in the care of the local civil affairs office, and residents eager to adopt have contacted the department.

For now, she will remain in the care of the state while the hunt for her biological parents continues. Child abandonment carries a three-year prison sentence.


In other news, a father abandoned his baby earlier this month, claiming the infant was "too heavy to carry." He left his five-month-old child at the scene of car crash nearby.

When authorities questioned him, he could not remember where the crash site was, or exactly when it took place.
