Fetus found inside manhole

A FETUS was found buried inside a manhole in front of a restaurant on Nakpil Street, Malate, Manila.

The said fetus, whose gender is still undetermined, was found by a staff of the hotel who was tasked by his manager Gleena Cachero to declog the manhole or drainage in front of their establishment, the Bashen Fresh Restaurant, at 9:45 a.m.

The fetus greeted the staff as soon as he removed the covering of the manhole.  It was wrapped with a white plastic bag.

The restaurant staff immediately reported the matter to the barangay which, in turn, sought assistance from the Manila Police District-homicide section.

An investigation is underway to establish who threw the said fetus in the drainage.
