Baby buried alive in flower garden

A pensioner has saved a newborn baby who had been buried alive in a flower garden in Singapore

Tay Kim Sia said he was smoking a cigarette on the rooftop terrace of his apartment building when he noticed tiny legs sticking up out of a large planter box.

Tay told The New Paper that he dug around the legs and found a baby boy with his umbilical cord still attached and a black plastic bag tied around his neck.

The paper said other pensioners nearby helped clean the baby and called police. The baby was taken to hospital. He was said to be in a healthy condition.

Police spokeswoman Yvonne Edwin said no-one had come forward to claim the baby and the police investigation was ongoing.
