A Malaysian woman allegedly threw her newborn baby out of a third-story window recently as bystanders watched in horror.
The Daily Mail reports the baby boy is alive but in critical condition at a hospital in the city of Kajang, Malaysia.
The baby survived the fall by landing on an awning before falling to the ground on a busy city street, according to the report.
A local restaurant owner, Thayalan Paliandy, 33, said he rescued the infant after he heard a loud thud and discovered the baby.
“I didn’t know what was going on and I ran out the back of the restaurant where I saw a baby boy lying motionless on the ground,” he said. “The baby’s body had turned blue and there was blood coming from injuries on his head and from his nose. I thought he was dead but then I saw his hand move.”
He said he signaled for a van to stop, and the van driver took him and the baby to a local hospital.
Police said they have a suspect in custody.
Infanticide, like abortion, is a horrific problem across the world. Last week, a baby in South Africa was rescued from a pit toilet where the mother had thrown the infant, thinking the baby was dead.

Many countries have services in place to protect babies from infanticide and help new mothers who are struggling. In America, all 50 states have safe haven laws to protect babies from abandonment and infanticide. Save haven laws allow mothers in crisis to leave their newborns in a safe environment, such as a hospital or fire station, without questions or repercussions, as long as there are no signs of abuse.
