SONG, Nov 18: A 34-year old construction worker and his sister were shocked to find a newborn baby boy behind their family’s home at Jalan Mission today.

Song district police chief, DSP Rowney Michael Jalak said at about 9am, the man’s sister told him that she heard a baby crying about 10 metres away from somewhere behind their house.
