A man searching through a bin discovered a premature baby boy that had been neglected, as his parents feared he would have poor health throughout his life. 

The unidentified man was looking for valuables in a bin, based in the city of Chongqing, and came across the baby boy on top of the rubbish.

The man took the baby to a hospital and doctors were soon able to track down the parents.

Horrifyingly, the mum and dad admitted they dumped the little baby boy because they were worried that he would be sickly for the rest of his life, after he only weighed 3.3 pounds and born around 30 weeks, according to

The couple told a reporter:

''We were afraid he [the baby] wouldn’t live long because he was born prematurely. We didn’t think carefully before throwing him in the rubbish bin.''

The parents told police that they regretted their decision of abandoning the child and promised to care for him.

The Sun report that the police gave them a verbal warning, but the couple were not arrested.
