Local Police in Palma, Mallorca, have reported the discovery of the body of a newborn baby in a rubbish container in calle Balanguera.
The National Police were the first to be alerted to the situation when a woman being treated at a health Centre in the town confessed to having disposed of her newborn baby.
The woman, who was between six and seven months pregnant, said she felt unwell on Saturday morning and when she went to the bathroom she gave birth to a stillborn child. She wrapped it in a towel, put it in a bag and disposed of it in a rubbish container. She then went to the Health Centre to seek medical help.
It was while she was at the Health Centre that she confessed to what had happened.
