FORSYTH, Ga. (NBC News) — Georgia deputies released body camera footage Tuesday of the moment first responders found a newborn baby alive abandoned in a plastic bag in the woods.
Authorities found the baby girl in a wooded area in Cumming, Georgia, after a 911 call came in around 10 p.m. on June 6, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office. Baby India, as she has been named by authorities, is “thriving” and in the care of a foster care approved by the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services.
In the video released Tuesday, a deputy ripped open a plastic bag to reveal India still covered in fluids and an umbilical cord attached. India was then wrapped in cloth and given first aid by paramedics before being taken to a local hospital. …
Forsyth Sheriff Ron Freeman told WXIA Tuesday that the department has had hundreds if not thousands of calls and emails asking to adopt India or donate to her care.
