According to him, no one could enter the stream to attempt to either carry or save it until it stopped breathing.

“It was a surprise when we woke up in the morning and discovered the foetus, but no one can explain how it got there.

“What surprised us more was that the foetus was still living and unfortunately no one was able to save it.

It was about seven months old and it’s like a forced labour. It is painful that it died while we were still observing it”, he added.
