Officer Luisa Fernanda Urrea is being praised for her heroic actions. Luisa was picking oranges in the forest when she heard a baby crying. She discovered that a newborn had been abandoned. The baby’s umbilical cord was still attached, and she was starving. Luisa knew that she was going to have to act quickly to save the newborn.
The baby was only a few hours old. Luisa is a mother herself, and her maternal instincts quickly kicked in when she saw the newborn. She decided to breastfeed the baby, which ultimately saved the girl’s life. If Luisa had not done that, then the baby girl would have likely died from starvation and hypothermia.
After Luisa nursed the newborn, she took the baby to the hospital. The baby made a complete recovery and is now being cared for by the Colombian Institute Of Family Welfare. Police officers are now attempting to find the birth mother in order to press charges.
Jhoy Murrillo is the director of the orphanage. He has stated that the mother could possibly be charged with attempted homicide. The photo of Luisa breastfeeding the baby quickly went viral. It has been shared thousands of times. Many people have stated that the mother deserves a medal for her actions.
