A newborn has been rescued from a dirty sewer after her tiny cries were heard when she was abandonded.
It is not known how old the tiny baby was or how long she had been alone when a neighbour heard her whimpering.
Four Military Police officers named as Izidoro, Rafael, Vernini and Alessandro went to the scene and found the baby wrapped in plastic bags.
She was partially covered in waste and was taken to the Vila Nova Cachoerinha hospital, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The Military Police wrote on social media that the officers "were sure everything was fine with the baby and were "happy for having saved her".
The State Secretary of Health said the baby was in a stable condition and video of the baby being bathed has now been shared on social media.
In the clip, a nurse can be seen bathing the tiny baby as an onlooker says "She's so cute!"
The case has been reported as an attempted homicide and the police are working to identify the girls' parents.
The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made so far.
