A newborn baby girl was found in the toilet at a dental clinic in a building in Tokyo’s Minato Ward on Thursday. The baby was taken to hospital where she was confirmed dead, Fuji TV reported.
According to police, at around 8 p.m. on Thursday, one of the employees of the dentist called 110 reporting that an infant was in the women’s toilet. Police said the baby was not covered with anything and had apparently been abandoned in the toilet right after being born.
