Police questioned the woman claiming to be the boy’s mom, who said that she didn’t mean for her baby boy to fall inside the toilet, according to CNN.
“That day she felt stomach aches,” Jiang Song, the vice director of police, said. “So she went to the toilet. It was actually close to her due date and the baby just slid out.”
Even though the woman has not been identified, police say she is in her early 20s. So far, police believe her story, according to CNN.
Baby Recovering After Being Rescued From Pipe
The precious infant, known as “Baby 59,” is recovering well in the hospital and drinking formula. He has made a miraculous recovery, considering the dire circumstances under which he was found.
“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, told the Daily Mail. “We suspect he has a fracture in the top right section of his skull. But now everything has been stabilized.”
Chinese Baby 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.
