A 20 year-old lady, whose name was only given as Hajia has dumped her baby in a toilet at Wassa Jirapa in the Western region.
Narrating the incident to Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, Prince Obeng Nframa said the young lady who migrated to the town to seek greener pastures, was impregnated by a small scale miner who has denied responsibility of the pregnancy and gone into hiding.
According to him, the young lady received a call from her parents to return back home in Bawku and so she planned aborting the 9-month old pregnancy.
He said the girl, who was due for labour on Tuesday morning, picked a bucket and delivered into it and later dumped the baby in the toilet.
The loud cry of the baby he added, drew the attention of a good Samaritan who also drew the attention of some residents around-who help to open the pit to rescue the baby.
The baby girl he added, survived and currently on admission at the hospital.
Meanwhile, the mother who dumped the baby was arrested but later granted bail to enable her deliver the placenta.
She will report back to the police after she delivers the placenta and be processed for court, he added.
