A newborn girl was abandoned in a delivery parcel by her mother in China.  She was found covering in layers of plastic bags by a delivery man yesterday

The 'parcel' was scheduled to deliver to an orphanage but the driver found a baby inside when he heard crying sound on the way

A new mother wrapped her baby girl in layers of plastic bags and sent her to an orphanage through a delivery service in southeastern China.

The delivery driver was shocked when he heard a crying sound from the package half-way through the journey.

Footage emerged showing onlookers feeding the baby with water to keep her hydrated in the 37 degree Celsius weather.

The 24-year-old mother, surnamed Luo, admitted putting her baby girl in a package and attempting to abandon her using a delivery service.
