A pair of premature twins were found in a dumpster after being abandoned by their father last Friday.
Chilling CCTV footage captures the moment a man placing two red plastic bags into a large bin on roadside in the city of Xi’an in China.
Five minutes later, a cleaner approached and opened the bags, revealing a baby boy and a baby girl in the bags.
He told Pear Video , a Chinese video-sharing platform, that he found the babies covered under a blanket.
"I thought they were dolls but then one of them moved his hand," he said.
The newborns were taken to hospital immediately, however the baby girl was confirmed dead by doctors after the check-up.
According to the doctor, the baby boy had very pale skin and weighed only 0.9 kilograms when he was admitted to the hospital.
Preliminary checks showed the twins were born at 28 weeks on January 18.
A nearby shop owner said he found a wristband on the babies stating the time of birth.
“It’s written 4pm, January 18, on the babies’ wristbands,” he told Pear Video.
The infant will be closely monitored by the doctors before being transferred to the local Children’s Home.
