Reports state local residents then called the police when a strong smell began emanating from the bag and officers arrived on the scene.
The cops reportedly found a dead baby boy in the bag and it was later confirmed the tot was between 10 and 15 days old.
The baby had been dead for a few hours when the cops found him but it is unclear where or how the tot died.
The cops are searching for the couple in the video but it is unclear if the baby is believed to be theirs or not.
Yohana Jimenez from the ‘Foundation Gilma Jimenez’ which works to protect children’s rights, was worried if the victim had siblings, saying: “Are there any children with those adults? They might be in danger.”
It is believed that the couple that abandoned the baby lives in the area and the investigation is ongoing. No arrests have been reported.
Netizen ‘Leugim Selbor’ commented: “Why doesn’t anybody do anything? Enough evil… the earth has turned into hell for the most vulnerable…”
And ‘Cristina Gonzalez’ added: ‘It’s very sad that ‘people’ like this exist.”
