PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WTVR) – The man who saw a woman drop off a bag that contained a bloody newborn at a Portsmouth hospital told WTKR-TV that he is haunted by what he saw.

“I dreamed about it a couple nights in a row and I hope I don’t dream about it tonight,” Justin Goldfarb said. “I’m going to remember that when I’m old and in a wheelchair.”

Goldfarb was at Mayview hospital over the weekend when he said he saw a woman place the bag near the hospital’s entrance. Goldfarb found a nurse and told her what he saw.

“When she picked up the bag, you could see the baby’s face in the bottom of the bag bleeding,” Goldfarb said.

The newborn survived and is being cared for by hospital staff.
