PHUKET: A newborn boy found abandoned beside a lagoon behind a workers camp in Cherng Talay early Sunday morning (Sept 29) has died, police have confirmed.

 

The baby, never given a name, died at Thalang Hospital on Monday, Cherng Talay Police Chief Col Akkanit Danpitaksan confirmed today (Oct 2).

 

“I received a report from Thalang Hospital staff that the newborn passed away because he was too weak and unable to breathe,” Col Akkanit said.

There should be a place a pregnant woman who does not want her baby could go to and find help , ( abortion ...?  ) Government should pay for this , as all these horrible stories about abandoned babies are not good for Thailand's reputation in the world .

Or , at least , a ' baby trap ' in public hospitals where the baby can be left . In many countries that exists , but not in Thailand.

Maybe a different set of rules apply if the mother was Burmese, didn't they used to get sent home if they were found to be pregnant some years ago?
