A newborn baby was on New Year’s day discovered in the toilet bin of an Air Mauritius plane.
The baby was discovered during a routine customs check of the plane, which landed at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.
A 20-year-old woman from Madagascar, suspected of having given birth in the flight denied the baby.
However, a medical examination revealed she had just given birth.
Both mother and child are in the hospital under police surveillance.
According to UK Times News, the young mother, a citizen of Madagascar arrived in Mauritius with a two-year work permit.
