Sometimes animals can prove themselves to be a lot more caring than humans. That’s what happened when a group of stray dogs in India saved the life of an infant. The baby was abandoned in a sewer.

The incident happened in Kaithal, in the region of Haryana in the early morning of July 18. CCTV cameras captured the entire unbelievable event.

The video shows several stray dogs approaching a sewer drain with caution. The loud cries coming from it likely drew their attention. Two dogs then proceeded to gently pull something out of the waste and onto the side of the road.

No one could have foreseen that what the two animals had pulled out of the sewer was a newborn baby wrapped in plastic. The baby girl was probably thrown in the gutter and left to die. And she likely would have had the dogs not noticed her loud cries.

The dogs then started barking intensely to draw attention to what they had found. Their loud barks captured the attention of passersby, who rushed to see what was going on. That’s when they realized the awful sight they were witnessing. Then they rushed to aid the poor, crying baby that someone threw away like trash.

The newborn was then taken to Kaithal civil hospital. It was there she was put in intensive care and is currently in treatment for severe head injuries and other complications.

Dinesh Kansal, who is the principal medical officer at the local hospital, stated that the child was probably born prematurely at seven months.

He also declared that doctors don’t want to take the risk of transporting her to a larger hospital due to her extensive injuries. She is currently in critical condition and still fighting for her life. It is still unknown whether the child will make it or not.

The same security cameras that caught the canine’s heroic act also caught the despicable act that prompted the whole incident. An unknown woman can be seen walking past and then throwing the baby away into the sewer. After that, she briskly walks away from the scene, trying to get away as fast as possible.

According to police officials, searches to locate the woman are currently ongoing. They fully intend to press charges against her and bring the heartless woman to justice for her actions.

According to a police spokesperson, when they manage to find the woman, she will be charged under the applicable sections of the Indian Penal Code.

The depths of human cruelty can be hard to grasp sometimes. It’s nothing less than a miracle that this baby was found still alive in spite of someone’s efforts to get rid of her.

It’s amazing how a bunch of stray dogs showed so much kindness to a human child—more than the person who was supposed to care for and protect her. We can only hope that the baby girl pulls through and that police manage to locate the person responsible for this awful act.
