Tiny two-month-old infant found abandoned in a cemetery
After crying noises were heard at the cemetery, responding residents discovered a two-month-old baby left alone between two concrete graves.
The small baby boy, who was allegedly left to die at the rodent-infested place, was covered in dirt as he had been lying on the ground for hours before he was found.
The abandoned tot was quickly saved by the concerned residents living near the cemetery at Quezon, Philippines who first heard of the baby’s cries.
They took the infant to the hospital by putting him in a tuk-tuk, which is basically a tricycle and one of the modes of transportation in the country. Upon testing, the doctors declared that the baby had been left at the cemetery for quite a number of hours.
After the baby was found on May 28th, he had been taken care of by the local authorities

The baby’s grandmother, Gloria Perez, came forward and revealed that her daughter, Lara Sentillas, is Louis’ mother.
The authorities captured the mother and said that they had been coordinating with the Departement of Social Welfare and Development to file a case against Sentillas.
Chief Supt. Guillermo Eleazar, Calabarzon Police regional director, said that the mother would be facing charges for abandoning her baby.
The police report obtained revealed that the baby was heard crying at around nine in the morning.
The charges were based for the violation of the country’s Republic Act No. 7610 or the Anti-Child Abuse Law and it had been prepared to be pressed against Sentillas since.
At first, baby Louis was taken to the home of the town’s chairman, Nelson Punzalan. He took care of the baby for the time being and eventually reported the incident to the Candelaria police station.
The baby was also taken to the Candelaria Rural Health Unit for a routine check-up.
