When he was found inside a basket with the umbilical cord still attached, the baby was crying desperately. The little one was identified behind a ruined wall in via Rametta in Catania by the carabinieri, who intervened after a passer-by reported. The newborn was immediately cared for by the military who placed him inside the service car, wrapping him in a clean blanket, supplied by a local resident, until the arrival of the 118 health workers who transported him by ambulance to the Garibaldi Nesima hospital in Catania. The doctors, at the outcome of the first visit, found that he was in good health before admitting him to the Neonatology ward, where he will remain under observation. At present, investigations are underway to identify the author of the abandonment.
