A BABY girl is fighting for her life in hospital after being thrown out of a window by her mum who had just given birth.
The 18-year-old mother, named by Russian media as Lyudmila Muradova, is facing an attempted murder investigation after her newborn baby was found wrapped in a towel after falling roughly 7 ft.
Neighbour Natalia Buslova heard a baby’s faint cries, ran out into the yard and noticed the child’s uncovered legs on grass under the window.
She immediately called the ambulance and brought the screaming child – who had suffered a serious head injury – into her flat.
Natalia, who is in her 50s, said: “When I unwrapped the baby, the umbilical cord was so long
“I twisted it a little and clamped it with a clothes peg.
“The girl was breathing and crying, a regular girl.”
Doctors say that the baby suffered a “serious head injury” in the fall from the window.
Chief medic Rustam Yesenakayev said: “The child is on a ventilator and our doctors are doing everything necessary and possible to save her health and life.”
‘SCARED AND SHOCKED’
The woman, named in multiple Russian reports as Lyudmila Muradova, said she was “scared and shocked” when she committed the awful crime.
She is known to have split from the father of her child, but her grandmother was ready to care for the baby, say reports.
The grandmother said she could not understand “how this happened”, though she has not yet visited the baby in hospital.
Reports said the child survived because of “mild” temperatures for the time of year.
One local said she would have frozen to death had it been any colder.
It was unclear how long the baby was lying on the ground outside the window.
Russian investigative committee official Ekaterina Danilova said efforts were underway to establish “all the circumstances of the crime”.
But according to Russia Today investigators have already filed a criminal lawsuit for attempted murder.
Natalia Buslova was publicly thanked by law enforcement for saving the newborn child.

She added: “Even animals do not abandon their children, I don’t how to describe this.”
Russian child care authorities will now determine the future of the child.
NTV reported that the mother asked police the length of the sentence she might receive, but did not inquire about the health of the baby.
