A FETUS was found dumped near a creek in San Miguel, Manila yesterday.

The fetus, estimated to be between five and six months old, was placed inside a plastic bag which was then wrapped with another plastic bag before it was tied up with the use of a packaging tape.

It was found yesterday morning near the corner of Estero de San Miguel and Concepcion Street in San Miguel.

PSSG John Paul Rojo of the Manila Police District-homicide section said the fetus was a girl.

Police received a call at around 10 a.m. regarding the presence of the said ‘suspicious’ plastic bag from those doing a clean-up operation at the Estero de San Miguel.

When opened, a fetus was found inside, with fresh blood.

Barangay Ex-O Ferdinand Gumagda sought  assistance from the police.
