Dustmen collecting waste at a main garbage site in Saudi Arabia stumbled across a two-month-old boy wrapped alive inside a garbage bag which was surrounded by hungry cats, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Doctors raced against time to save the baby’s life as they estimated that the boy had been in that bag for nearly two days, Sada said.

“Doctors said the baby was in a serious condition and that they were racing against time to save his life,” the paper said, quoting police in the western town of Makkah.

“He was stuffed inside a waste bag and hungry cats were seen sniffing at the bag. God the Almighty saved him from being devoured by cats.”
