MIRACLE IN PACECO - It was a farmer who heard the cries of the few-day-old baby, who immediately alerted the police. He was immediately taken to the hospital. His cord had been cut and his placenta was in his pouch. The envelope was open and the baby could breathe, but he would not have survived long due to the weather and the presence of wild animals in the countryside. An investigation has been opened into the case. The doctors decided to call him Francesco Alberto: Francesco because he was born on the day of the saint of Assisi, and Alberto after Alberto Marino, the carabiniere who was by his side until the evening.

THE FINDING - And it is he who speaks to the Corriere della Sera and to ensure that the newborn is out of danger. He hasn't returned to see him yet, but he hopes to visit him as soon as possible: 'They told me it weighs three kilos and is 50 centimeters long, it's beautiful'. Then, the story of the discovery: “My colleague and I, the appointed Leonardo Tumbarello, were notified by the operations center that it had received the report of the discovery of the child from the farmer who saved his life. It was 5.30pm. We rushed to the hospital immediately and arranged for the newborn to be welcomed by alerting the emergency room and neonatology and freeing the clinic from other patients so that the baby could receive all the treatment right away. Then we ran to the place where 118 had already intervened. The little one was in the ambulance and we escorted him to the hospital. He had been wrapped up by the nurses in a heating blanket and I think he had the signs of small burns from exposure to the sun. From what the doctors have ascertained he was left immediately after birth and remained in the plastic bag for eight to nine hours. Luckily the bag they had put him in was open and he was able to breathe ”.

He assures that, despite some organizational problems, he would be happy with a fourth child. Because that lived was “an indescribable experience. I have been in the Arma since 2006, I worked in the North, then in the Palermo area. Now I'm at the radiomobile operational unit, but I've never felt such intense emotion'. He makes no assumptions about why it was abandoned and what is behind it. But “I know it was a miracle that the farmer happened to be passing by. In the tragedy the child was lucky”.
