Earlier today, CNN reported that Chinese firefighters and surgeons have worked together to rescue a newborn baby boy from a sewer pipe below a toilet.
After hearing what seemed to be the voice of a child crying from inside the building’s pipelines, emergency services were called.
Rescuers in the Zhejiang province dismantled the piping and rescued the newborn with the help of firefighters and surgeons! The baby was stuck in the L-joint of the pipe (of about 3inches) and is believed to have been flushed down the toilet.
Thankfully the child is now safe in the hands of a nearby hospital under the name “Baby Number 59” because of the number of his incubator.
The police are treating the case as a homicide and have released a statement that reads:
“Mother, come back! The baby is resilient and alive. Please show up, Mother. This is your own baby and he should return to your warm embrace soon.”
