Alleged Mother of Newborn Found inside Recycling Bin Arrested; Believed to Have Abandoned the Baby

Yesterday, “Tai Keng Gardens” trended in Google and it’s not because a new bubble tea has opened there.

Instead, a baby boy was at the private residential estate, which is Upper Paya Lebar Road.

According to the police, “There were no visible injuries on the baby and his condition was stable.”

And today, there’s an update.
