The child was found by garbage collectors on the sidewalk at a garbage can in the commune of Pierrefitte-sur-Seine, in the department of Seine-Saint-Denis (near Paris). The child’s mother is reportedly a 19-year-old woman who lives in the municipality where the discovery was made, the prosecutor’s office said. Her current condition does not allow her to be questioned at the moment, it sounds.

    Nothing is known about the circumstances of the newborn’s death.
