In a tragic incident, a mother dumped her newborn daughter in a neighbourhood in Egypt, sparking public ire. The CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral on social media platforms.

The video showed the woman walking down a staircase and approaching a building. She then leaves the baby girl in the corner.

A CCTV camera in the neighbourhood captured the moment. The incident took place in the October Gardens area in Giza Governorate, according to local media.

The residents of the building found the infant. One of them took her to his house, according to officials.

The resident said that he thought the newborn would fall a prey to stray dogs if left alone.

The resident reported the girl to the police in the area. It was revealed that the girl was a month old.   

The Police ordered the girl to be taken care of by the social service department.

The authorities have also opened an investigation into the incident.

The police have found the family and arrested the mother for the heinous crime.

The police said all legal measures were taken against the woman, and she was referred to Public Prosecution.

Last week, a criminal court in Egypt has sentenced a divorced woman to 15 years in jail after being convicted of throwing her two-year-old baby girl into the Nile waters and attempting to throw the second baby.

While the first daughter drowned, passers-by managed to save the second.

In her testimony before the court, the mother said she did so to break the heart of her ex-husband after he had deserted her and her daughters following divorce and told her of his intention to get married to another woman.

Accordingly, the woman with the daughters left the village in the Belqas of Dakahlia Governorate to Cairo to carry out the plot.

The court said that this mother was stripped of all human feelings when she committed that crime, adding that the divine providence saved the second daughter, 8, from certain death when her clothes got stuck on the wall of the Qasr el Nil Bridge and the passers-by could rescue her.
