Most of us would usually come across trash on the ground when going for a walk. For a man in Mexico, he saw an abandoned baby on the ground, which changed his life from then on.

Raul Marin Ceja was taking a stroll when he saw a white bundle on the ground near a canal, the local media reported in 2015. He decided to open up the bundle as he filmed the process. To his surprise, a newborn baby girl with part of the umbilical cord still attached was lying in the blankets.

Indeed, when a person happens to stumble across a helpless, innocent life, like this tiny baby, it’s no coincidence. It’s heartening to know there are people like Ceja in this world, who gave this little one another chance at life.
