A 9-day-old boy was left to a nun on a bus in Can Tho City last Saturday who took him back to Long An Pagoda in Phuong Thanh Ward.
Dieu Minh was on bus traveling from Kien Giang Province to Can Tho when a woman got into the bus and asked her to keep the boy for a moment as she needed to get off to go to the restroom.
The woman never got on the bus again.
Examining the bag left on the bus by the woman, the nun found old pieces of clothes and a sheet of paper that read, “the boy was born on June 19, 2011. It weighs over 3 kg and has not yet been named.” The nun then took the abandoned baby to her pagoda.
The newborn boy is the fifth one to be left under the pagoda’s care for the past three months, the nun said.
