A newborn girl was rescued from under a pedestrian flyover in Samut Sakhon province on Saturday morning, police said.

The Krathumban Police Station was alerted at 6.30am. Police sent an emergency team from the Wichaivej Omnoi to rescue the baby.

A passerby motorcyclist, Chommanart Waithanomsak, 39, was holding the baby when the rescuers and police arrived.

The baby girl was wrapped in a pink towel. She was not crying but apparently hungry and was trying to feed from the breast of the Good Samaritan.

Chommanart told police that she was riding past the flyover in front of Ban Siwarat housing estate on Buddhamonthon 5 Road in in Tambon Omnoi when a man called her out, asking if she had a mobile phone.

She stopped to take a look and called police and picked up the baby. She said the baby was not crying but seemed to be hungry.

The baby was rushed to the Vichaivej Omnoi Hospital. Doctors said she was no more than 24 hours old when she was found. The baby has been admitted to the ICU.
