Newborn rescued after being found found trapped in sewer

A baby boy believed to be just days old has been found in a sewer pipe in a bathroom in China.

Firefighters were called to an apartment complex where residents said they could hear the baby’s cries through the pipes.

After removing the section of pipe containing the baby, firefighters took him to a nearby hospital where pliers and a saw were used to gently free him.

Doctors at Pujiang People’s Hospital said by telephone that the baby’s prognosis was good. His heart rate was stabilizing and his breathing was much smoother, they added.
