A newborn was abandoned on Friday morning inside the Catedral de Cartago, found by a sacristan, the person in charge of the church, inside a bag in one of the pews on the right side of the church.

Apparently, the little girl was wrapped in cloths and next to some toys. In addition, there was a note that said, “no lo puedo cuidar renuncio a mis derechos noe me culpen Dios me perdonará” (I can not take care of it I give up my rights do not blame me God will forgive me).

The man called police. When the paramedics arrived they saw that the newborn still had the umbilical cord attached. The baby was taken to the Max Peralta hospital, where they reported she is in stable condition.
