The newborn baby which was found abandoned on a street in Skopje yesterday is doing well and recuperating in hospital.

The baby was apparently discarded the same day it was born, the umbilical cord left next to it. It was smeared with blood and cold, but was quickly placed into an incubator and is recovering, said doctor Katerina Stavrik.

The event shocked the citizens of Topaansko Pole who have not heard about such cruel act.
