Police continue to release new information about the baby girl who was found near the edge of the woods in Forsyth County, Georgia on June 6.
As Dearly previously reported, the infant was found by a family who had just arrived home from vacation. They were just some of the few people who live on the road where the baby girl was found, the few who would have been able to hear her cries.
**Update on Baby India** We continue to follow any and all leads in regards to the abandonment of baby India; however,…
Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman said during a live press conference that “it is, without doubt, a divine intervention that this child was found.”
Now, authorities remain on the hunt for the parents of the infant, who has been affectionately named “Baby India.”
Last week, new photos of India were released:
And now, the video of the moment she was found has also been released.
The video starts off with the sounds of India crying and a warning that the content is “graphic and may be disturbing for some viewers”:
In the video, one of the good Samaritans that found the baby is seen rattled by what they have just found, as he said:
“We heard it from our house. My kids said, ‘It’s a baby.’ I said, ‘It’s an animal.'”
From there, the responding police officer pulled the child from the plastic bag and began wrapping her in blankets as paramedics took over.
In a press release, Forsyth County authorities said that by sharing the footage of the night India was found, they hope that it will bring forth credible information that will lead them to the infants’ parents:
We are happy to report that Baby India is thriving and is in the care of the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services.
We are releasing parts of the footage from the body camera worn by the first FCSO Deputy on scene the night Baby India was discovered, Thursday June 6th, 2019. We release this footage in hopes to receive credible information on the identity of Baby India and to show how important it is to find closure in this case.
The sheriff’s office then took the time to “remind the public that the State of Georgia has a law called Safe Haven (HB 391)”:
This law allows a child’s mother to leave her baby, up to 30 days old, with an employee of any medical facility including any hospital, institutional infirmary, health center or birthing center in Georgia without prosecution. This includes Hospitals, Fire Stations and Police Stations.
Anyone with any information regarding Baby India is asked to call the TIP LINE at 770-888-7308. Callers can remain “totally anonymous.”
