A day-old baby had a miraculous escape in Sharjah on Tuesday after being thrown by his mother down a garbage chute from the ninth floor of an apartment building and landing in a garbage container.

The baby’s mother, a 26-year-old Filipina maid, threw the baby from her employer’s building in Al Majaz area. The watchman discovered the baby inside a garbage bag in the trash at 5pm. He immediately notified the police who arrived at the scene to find the baby alive. Paramedics rushed the baby to Al Qasimi Hospital where his life was saved.

The forensic team and CID carried out an intensive search to find where the baby came from. In three hours, the investigation revealed that the baby was thrown from the 9th floor of the building.

Police knocked at the door of the apartment and found the maid working illegally with an Asian family, consisting a mother, father and a five-year-old son. The entire family claimed to have witnessed the incident.

Forensics checked the baby’s mother and found her bleeding. They confirmed that she had given birth to the baby at around 4am.

During interrogation, the maid confessed that she got pregnant by an Asian man who is not currently in the country. She said that at 4am the contractions started and she gave birth to the baby in the bathroom while the family was sleeping. She then put the baby boy in a plastic bag and threw him down the chute.

The police summoned her sponsor who had already reported her for absconding. The case is being investigated by Al Burhaira Police and has been referred to public prosecution.

Brig. Abdullah Mubarak Al Dukhan, Deputy Chief of Sharjah Police, said that hiring illegal maids is dangerous and the family will have to face this charge. He urged the public not to hire illegal workers who could commit crimes that affect the community.
