Child dumping by mothers is gradually becoming the order of the day in South Africa.

Some women dump their baby, some go as far as dumping their foetus for reasons best known to them.

One question is, why allow the pregnancy grow or mature to that level before discarding it.

The police have reported to have found a foetus in  a dust bin in Durban.

The foetus of a baby boy was found discarded in a dustbin in Durban on Tuesday.

Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said the foetus was discovered in the Glenwood area.

“The foetus was a baby boy, who unfortunately passed away prior to our arrival at the scene.”

Jamieson said police are investigating the incident. Last year two newborns were disposed of in dustbins around the city.
