A baby is being showered with gifts by members of the public after she was abandoned.

Police were called after a good Samaritan found the baby at the side of a road in Yibin, China.

The baby was taken to a hospital, where she is being cared for until a safe home is found for her. Many people brought clothes, gifts and money for her.

Meanwhile, police searched for the mother who dumped the baby. They and others were shocked when the investigation led detectives to an elementary school student.

Nanxi police said that the 12-year-old girl hid her pregnancy, and even her teacher and school officials were unaware that the girl was pregnant.

The girl and her brother live with their grandparents while their parents work in another city. The grandmother did not know about the pregnancy either.

Police are now searching for the baby’s father as they suspect that girl was raped.
