A passerby found a new-born baby boy in a plastic bag in the central Bohemian town of Tábor on Tuesday. The man was walking his dog when he discovered the abandoned infant among trees on the bank of the Lužnice River. The baby was suffering from mild exposure but otherwise in good health when he was brought to a local hospital. Police managed to track down his mother within two hours of his discovery. They are treating the case as attempted murder.
