An Austrian student living in Brazil found an abandoned baby in a box and saved its life.

Graphic design student Jonathan G. (20) was on his way to the University of Brasilia, when he discovered a cardboard box on the street. "I thought it was a cat in there," he said.

However, the mewling turned out to be from a naked, new born girl. Quick-thinking Jonathan took the baby to the nearest police station and said that he is so happy that she is alive.
