A bus driver spotted a new-born baby on the side of the road in Saint-Trond (Limburg province) at around 8.30 on Tuesday, De Lijn revealed on Tuesday. The driver was in his vehicle at the time. The baby, who was still alive, was taken to hospital.
The driver immediately got down off the bus. “It’s absurd. The driver spotted the child and called the police and emergency services, who attended the scene. The child was taken to hospital”, a De Lijn Limburg spokesman said.
