A baby boy was found dead wrapped in a plastic bag in a supermarket in Fukuoka City on Sunday, believed to have been born just hours earlier, police said.
The manager of the supermarket called police at around 11.20 a.m. and told them a male infant had been found dead in the ladies toilet. The infant was found naked wrapped inside a plastic bag, and had its umbilical cord still attached. The baby had no apparent external injuries and is believed to have lived for just a couple of hours.
Police said an autopsy will be carried out Monday and they will attempt to identify the baby's mother.© News reports
