– It was already dark. They started shining their phones to see what was in the box. There was a little girl inside, a blanket and a bottle – said Dmitry Litvinov, the father of the 16-year-old, in an interview with the local press.
The child was hospitalized. His life and health are in no danger.
– There was a bluish child in the box. I took them to a warm room and called the emergency number. After making sure that the newborn was free from any injuries, I began to gently massage it over its body. The nurse brought a clean blanket and warmed the milk. After a while the girl turned pink. We wrapped her in warm blankets and fed her – said the doctor on duty, Olga Buginina, quoted in the release Ministry of Health of the Novosibirsk Region.
