Riyadh – A newborn baby was found abandoned near a shopping mall in the neighbourhood of Okaika in Mecca.

A  cleaning worker spotted the boy in a plastic bucket and and informed a mall employee who, in turn,  alerted the security authorities.

The baby, who was still alive, was taken to the hospital for medical check-ups and a police inquiry was launched to uncover the circumstances of the incident.

Investigators believed that the baby, who was wrapped in a piece of cloth, spent hours in the buckets before he was found.
