Cop saves abandoned baby by breastfeeding her

An abandoned newborn baby was saved from starving to death when a cop breastfed her while they waited for paramedics.

New mum Luisa Fernanda Urrea - a police officer in the rural area of La Marina western Colombia's Valle del Cauca department - had been called to a remote forest settlement when locals found the child in the undergrowth.
 
Medics say that without her maternal support, the hours-old baby might have succumbed to starvation and hypothermia.

The baby, who still had part of her umbilical cord attached to her, was in danger of starvation and hypothermia so Luisa breastfed her while waiting for paramedics to arrive at the scene.



Her actions have now been credited with saving the baby's life.

Luisa said she was only doing what any woman would have done in the same situation.

She said: "I'm a new mother and I have milk and I recognised the needs that this poor little creature had.

"I think any woman would have given her nourishment in the same circumstances."
