A Nigerian man, Mathew Oabode, has recounted how he saved the life of an abandoned baby while many people who spotted the child before his arrival were busy taking photos of the baby.
Mathew who shared the story on his Twitter handle, @Matoosa, said he had just returned from the hospital where his wife had just put to bed when he was alerted that a baby was dumped somewhere. He rushed there and met a small crowd taking photos of the abandoned baby. He said he quickly took the child to the hospital for medical attention.
”Today, around 7:00am, just got back home after I slept at d Hospital with my pregnant sick Wife. A Friend called dat there’s an abandoned Child shivering in my Community as d Secretary & Youth Chairman. When I got dere, people were busy taking pictures.
I was so furious & d next thing I could do was calling on a bike Man & took d bouncing baby Boy to d nearest government Health Care Centre for treatment & d likes. Kudos to the Matron & d Health Workers as dey acted very fast in reviving d Child.” he wrote
