Baby Rescued Pipe China

A newborn baby boy, who was heroically rescued alive after being stuck in a sewage pipe, remains safe and in stable condition in the hospital. Local residents have donated formula for the recovering infant, and have even offered to adopt the innocent boy.

A newborn baby boy is miraculously alive and healthy after being rescued from a sewage pipe in China. As he continues to recover in the hospital from a skull fracture, his mother — who has been identified as a 22-year-old single woman —  is reportedly at the hospital with the baby she allegedly discarded.

Baby Recovering In Chinese Hospital

The infant arrived in the hospital still trapped inside the sewage pipe on May 25, and doctors and firefighters worked together to carefully remove the pipe and free the infant.

“When the baby arrived here, he was in critical condition,” Zhang Songhe, a nurse of the pediatric department of the Pujiang County People’s Hospital, tells the Daily Mail. “We suspect he has a fracture in the top right section of his skull. But now everything has been stabilized.”

But while authorities are still investigating why the baby was found stuck in a pipe on the fourth floor of a residential apartment, seemingly after being flushed down a toilet, the infant’s mother.

“The mother has been found. She is right now in the hospital. I heard she is a 22 year-old single woman. I don’t know the reason she abandoned the baby,” Zhang adds.

The nurse also revealed that the public response to the terrible tragedy has led visitors offering gifts for the newborn — and even requesting to adopt him.

“There have been three or four groups of visitors delivering baby formula some of whom have expressed willingness to adopt,” she says.

Baby Boy Flushed Down Toilet Alive

The infant was found after residents of an apartment building in Jinhua city, Zhejiang province, heard cries from a fourth-floor apartment bathroom, according to CNN.

Once authorities arrived on the scene, they tried to pull the baby boy out of the toilet, but with no success. So the rescuers ran to the floor below the apartment, and sawed away the section of the pipe where the baby was stuck. Unfortunately, rescuers couldn’t remove the baby from the sewage pipe, even after it was sawed off.

Authorities brought the pipe the hospital, and carefully cut out the infant.

Such a miraculous story. We hope the infant continues to recover safely.

Rumour is the mother’s name is 周玲曼. It has already been declared on the Chinese website, Weibo. Both of her parents are from Hunan province. Her father is apparently serving in the Chinese military and so she is exempt from prosecution. Life is so cruel.
