A 10-month-old baby girl is battling for her life at the Senya Breku Health Centre after her mother allegedly buried her in a forest at Krobo-akye near Senya Breku in the Central region.
According to witnesses, they heard cries and followed the sound only to find the baby girl buried in a makeshift grave in the bush.
In an interview with Adom News, one of the residents, Yaa Grace said they quickly alerted the police and that led to her rescue.
Meanwhile, the Senya Breku District Police Commander, DSP Matthew Boamponsem said the baby was dehydrated so they rushed her to the hospital for medical attention.
He added that, the police has also mounted a man-hunt for the mother who committed the heinous crime.
He said the baby has been sent to the hospital for treatment while the police are trying hard to arrest the mother.
Meanwhile, the Medical Officer in-charge of the Senya Breku Heath Centre, Dr Victor Saidu Issifu said the baby is in critical condition.
He explained that, she has a bacterial infection, especially in her private part due to the number of hours spent underground.
This notwithstanding, Dr Issifu said they are doing everything possible to save her life.
