The student residents of a share house in Herston in inner Brisbane were shocked to find a baby on their verandah on Sunday afternoon and tried to comfort the three-month-old with cartoons… before finding she wasn’t really interested.
Officers were called to the Herston Road address just after noon on Sunday after the infant was found.
Long Nguyen, the student who found the baby, was on his way to university when he came across the three-month-old on his front verandah reports Seven News.
“I was quite shocked,” he said.
“I really didn’t know what was going on, and it took me a few minutes to calm myself.”
He said after he took her inside she began to cry.
“She woke up and started crying and I tried to calm her down, I turned on the TV and let her watch some cartoons, but well, that didn’t really help.”
The student says he then called police and the three-month-old was taken to hospital.
