Itโ€™s a tragedy of catastrophic proportions, yet sadly under reported: infants abandoned in their first 24 hours of life and left to die. In South Africa, almost 3500 children are dumped every year by their parents, many of them new-borns. Dr Roxanne Thornton is a foetal osteologist and by studying the skeletal remains of these children, she can uncover how the baby died. By piecing together the evidence in the bones, sheโ€™s ensuring at least some justice for these forgotten babies.
