In woodland in Chelyabinsk, Russia, a man heard a baby’s crying and followed where the sound came from. To his shock, he sees a baby being eaten alive by large ants. The baby’s body showed signs of being badly bitten, and with her umbilical cord still intact.
A police spokesman said: ‘The person that found the baby girl heard her crying and on investigating discovered the child lying on a pile of leaves and covered in ants.
‘It was clear that the child had been abandoned and there was no one else in sight, so they picked her up and called for an ambulance.’
After treatment for the bites, the baby is now stable and is expected to make a full recovery.
She is being treated at a hospital in Chelyabinsk and police are trying to track down her parents.
