    NAGAUR, Rajasthan — A heartbreaking video of a newborn baby left lying in the dirt at a garbage dump in India has grasped the attention of a filmmaking couple, and the two are now seeking to adopt the infant as their own daughter.

    Vinod Kapri and his wife Sakshi Joshi saw the footage earlier this month on Twitter and were moved to action. The video showed a newborn baby lying in the dirt crying. The post has generated over 3 million views as of press time.

    “[I] can’t bear to hear this child’s cries anymore,” Kapri wrote in re-sharing the video. “Does anyone have any information? We would like to make her a part of our lives.”

    Joshi also shared her husband’s tweet.

    According to CNN, others began to chime in with tips and it was soon discovered that the baby was in Rajasthan. Kapri then asked his friend, Rahul Choudhry, to help him locate the child. He learned that she had been admitted to Jawaharlal Nehru Government Hospital in Nagaur.

    Choudhry sent the couple video footage of the infant in the hospital.

    “She is safe now and recovering. Please keep praying for her,” Kapri tweeted. “Thanks a million to the doctors of JLN Hospital, Nagaur, Rajasthan. We are checking [the] adoption process. Thanks to all of you for being part of this special journey.”
