Baby in plastic bag

6 of 9
 
In a crowded park in Brazil, visitors rushed to the water's edge when they heard cries coming from a black plastic bag. Home video captures the dramatic moment when a man fishes a bag out of the lake with a tree branch. To everyone's shock, inside the bag was a 2-month-old baby girl wearing a soaked pink dress.

After the baby was rescued, Brazilians mobbed the hospital hoping to get a glimpse of the child. The little girl is in the care of child protective authorities and has recovered fully. Police have arrested the baby's mother and charged her with attempted homicide.
