Policeman wraps abandoned baby in his uniform

A police officer from Chuxiong, southwest China’s Yunnan province, has been hailed as a hero after a photo of him keeping an abandoned baby warm by wrapping the baby with his uniform went viral on China’s social media.

The Samaritan identified as Wu Yu rushed to Futa Park on Tuesday evening after being informed by locals that a newborn had been abandoned in the woods. After arriving at the scene and spotting the shivering infant, whose lips had turned purple in the freezing temperatures, Wu immediately wrapped the baby in his uniform and jumper, and then held the baby close in order to warm him with his body heat. The newborn is now in stable condition and the local police bureau is working with the civil administration department to find the child’s parents.
