The surprising discovery was made by a resident on Calle San Isidro in Orihuela, a municipality located at the foot of the Sierra de Orihuela mountains, yesterday evening (January 17). Local sources indicate that the baby was wrapped up in clothes and left in the outside entrance of an apartment block.
