Baguio Police in search of man who possibly threw fetus in garbage


Baguio City, Philippines – Baguio City Police is now searching for a man caught by a CCTV camera who possibly threw a fetus in a garbage dump in the City on Monday, September 26, 2022.


A CCTV footage posted by Mountain Province Broadcasting Corporation showed a man wearing a red jacket and blue pants pass by a stall near the area where the fetus was discovered.

Loakan Police Station said an individual called their attention about an abandoned fetus seen in the garbage dump located in Loakan Access Road, Loakan Proper at 1:45 PM of the said day.


Police responded and confirmed that a baby boy fetus around six to eight months old was there.


Police hinted the baby is a victim of abortion.

Police Lieutenant Benedicto Dontogan, Operation Officer of said station, urged the public to help the authorities to identify and find the man.

Dontogan explained that abortion whether intentional or not is punishable by law. Physicians and midwives who perform abortions in the country may be charged with a crime, which can result in six years in prison under the Revised Penal Code.


Said fetus was later accommodated by the San Lorenzo Ruiz Parish Church and was provided a proper burial in Baguio City Public Cemetery.


Last year, a dead newborn baby was found outside Baguio Medical Center (BMC).


Baguio City Police Office Station 5 reported that the baby was covered by a blue towel and put inside an ice cream container.
