Baby Found Floating in Lagoon in Brazil
This is a story that immediately brought to mind the baby Moses floating down the Nile River.
At the shore of a lagoon in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, people heard sounds like those of a baby kitten coming from a black plastic bag floating by. A man reached out with a branch or stick, pulled the bag ashore, and instead of finding a kitten, found a two month old baby girl.
The video may be seen here. It is astonishing viewing. A big tip of the hat from up here in el norte to the people there in Belo Horizonte who thought to do a random act of kindness.
A more recent report from the Guardian newspaper states that the child's mother has been arrested.
