A day old baby was on Friday night dumped in an open drain at Mallam a suburb of Accra.
It is unclear what pushed the mother of the infant into committing such a dastardly act after a heavy downpour in the area in the night.
Residents were left in complete shock after their attention was drawn to the incident and all attempts to save the life of the innocent baby proved futile.
Unable to control their emotions, many were heard openly raining curses on the heartless mother and prayed she never conceives.
The dead baby has since been buried.
