A newborn twin has died after being thrown from a moving car with her tiny sister – who miraculously survived.
Their desperate mum is believed to have thrown the infants out of the door of a car in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
One of the naked girls was heard crying but her tiny sibling had already turned grey as they were found in Negros Oriental in the Phillipines.
Footage shows how one of the babies was crying and moving its arms and legs in the air.
Locals wrapped her in a blanket as they waited for an ambulance to arrive to the village of Datagon.
The girl’s twin sister, who was smaller and weaker, was already unconscious. She was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital.
Lea Gutib, who was among the people who rushed to the aid of the babies, said: "The little girls were so beautiful, so small and so fragile. I could not believe when we found them.
"One girl was not breathing but the other was stronger, she had a good colour and was moving around. She looked like she was crying out to people for health.
"I cannot understand how a mother can do this to her children. This will haunt her every day for the rest of her life."
Jean Miral, another resident who rushed to help, said she was torn between "anger, sadness and joy".
She said: "It’s so beautiful to see the little girl alive and think about how she was saved. But she will always be without her twin sister.
"It’s so sad, and it makes me so angry when I think about a grown-up person who has done this to their children.
"I am praying that the baby girl who survived will be cared for by a special family who love her.
"We do not know who the mother is but the babies had not been there for a long time. Somebody left them and disappeared quickly."
According to local media, the one surviving girl was rushed to hospital and taken into the maternity ward where she has been under observation for the last week.
Authorities are reportedly trying to trace the mother.
