She at first thought he was a stray dog.  Kamila Musabekova, 69, found a baby boy naked covered in blood in a box at a local garbage dump. The Russian woman rushed him to her home and a visiting doctor said he was just hours old.

Kamila named him ‘Chingiz’ meaning gift of God and launched a bid to find his mother. Assuming no one comes forward to claim the child and provide proof of parenthood, Kamila says her son will adopt the baby.

Ms Musabekova said she had decided to walk through the dump by chance on her way home from work.

‘I usually walk along the road but I just wanted to take a shortcut simply because it was so cold,’ she explained.

I heard the noise and was convinced it was an abandoned puppy.

‘When I open the box the was a tiny baby boy lying there naked, without even a blanket.

‘The was blood on him and on the box because he obviously just been born.

‘My heart went out to the little tyke. I am a mother myself and when I saw this little youngster I felt the same as when I first saw my own children after they were born.
