Three years ago pregnant Maria Kristensen from Denmark was on holiday in Turkey. During a taxi ride, she became aware of a little pink bundle at the roadside.
She stopped the car and soon realized that it was a small infant who lay abandoned in the ditch.
- I took her into the car and made sure to turn off the air conditioner. There was no life in her, and she did not respond when we tried to pour water on her head, told Kristensen.
It was only when she pressed the child to her chest that the baby showed sign of life. She tried to breastfeed the child, which proved to be lifesaving.
It is now three years ago since Kristensen saved the little girl from the ditch.
- Every year at this time I think of her. She was newborn when I found her, so she has birthday at this time. I wonder how it's going with her and with the family who adopted her, says Kristensen to Dagbladet.
The child's biological mother has not been convicted, because the child did not die. According to the judge, she can thank me for her release from prison and that her child is still alive, says Kristensen.
Kristiansen says that the child's biological mother was 26 years old and came from the town where the little girl was found.
- I was so mad when I found her lying in a ditch like that. How can anyone do that to a small child? It was quite obvious that she was placed there to die, says Kristensen.
Now Kristensen plans to put an ad in the Turkish media, to get in touch with the adoptive family.
- I hope that the family will contact me, says Kristensen.
