18-year-old Angeline Angono from the Philippines reportedly took a baby she was caring for from their home and sold them to a childless woman in exchange for a bus ticket.
The kidnapper was apprehended by police on her from from Libertad to Visayas.
The child was later found in hospital after a woman named Bale Madrigal handed her in.
The baby girl was reunited with her mother, Jenneth Bore, after doctors confirmed that she was unharmed.
The PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group - National Capital Region (CIDG-NCR) has now filed a complaint of child trafficking against the 18-year-old babysitter.
According to ABC-CBN news, the baby’s mother said she hoped her former babysitter would ‘rot in jail’ for attempting to sell her child.
Angeline Angono refused to comment on the incident, though it is unclear whether or not she will face trial for trying to sell her employers child to a stranger in exchange for a bus ticket.
Child trafficking is considered a huge problem in the Philippines, and many poverty stricken families are forced to sell their children to make ends meet.
