The baby was found by Edinora Jimenez, from Santa Marta, while she was out picking oranges. Jimenez told news station Noticias Caracol that when she heard crying, she initially thought it was a cat before realizing it was a baby.

The baby was handed to officer Luisa Fernanda Urrea, who wasted no time in nursing.
