Newborn baby abandoned at Lampang roadside bus stop

By The Nation

 

A newborn baby boy was found abandoned at a bus stop in Lampang’s Muang district on Friday morning.

 

A bus passenger found the baby at 7am in a cardboard box left near a bus stop on the Lampang-Denchai road in Thanawan village in Tambon Phrabatr.

 

Rescuers cleaned traces of blood from the boy and rushed him to Lampang Hospital.

 

Police said an employee of the Mae Moh power plant was waiting for a bus when he heard a baby crying from inside the box. Opening the box, he found the baby and called the police.

Now I wait for comments like: Oh, probably another teenage pregnancy by a poor mother etc.

while no one in the family ask questions regarding the whereabouts of the baby...

Monty python thought of it first.

'When I was young I lived in a cardboard box in middle of road'

 

The kid can do some great comedy quotes when he grows up.

One thought I did have, how do they know the kid is Thai?

No one mentioned the baby was Thai, but I've yet to hear of a falang abandoning their baby in Thailand.

Quite a lot of Burmese and Cambodians floating around.

Not every foreigner in Thailand is white.

Probably not even 5%.

Don't know why this subject has even come up. No one has mentioned the ethnicity of the baby, and why should it matter?

My point is there are so many people that would accept a young baby these days into their lives that abandoning one in a box on the roadside is seingly obscene.

Someone's about to give me their 8/9 year old daughter.

New husband doesn't want her.

This is the way the world works when there is no welfare check attached to a child.

Because if the baby isn't Thai, it has no right to Thai citizenship.

Abandoning the kid, gives it Thai citizenship (apparently), as long as the kid's brown.

 

And you were the one that brought up 'ethnicity'.

I only talked about nationality.

He didn't say foreigner. He said "falang," 100 percent of whom are white.

Still irrelevant. Ethnicity, nationality, how will they establish either? DNA? Doubt it.
