Newborn Baby Found Alive Inside Toilet Pipe (Video)

A newborn baby girl was rescued from a sewer pipe after her mother flushed the child down the toilet.

The baby, who became wedged in the pipe between floors of the building, was pulled to safety after being carved out with a metal grinder.

Police believe the woman had hoped to hide the pregnancy but because the toilet had no water filled U-bend, and because the pipe was only 20cm wide, the baby girl had become wedged a short way down, where her cries alerted other students who then raised the alarm.

Firemen rushed to the student dormitory in Linyi in eastern China’s Shandong Province.

They said they knew they were in a race against time to free her before she would die.

Fire Brigade spokesman Tao Fang said: “It was impossible to get the baby out from above. She had fallen into the toilet and gone down the pipes where she had got stuck between the third and fourth floors. We used an angle grinder to break open the pipeline on the third floor and we could then push the child up to colleagues on the fourth floor where she was handed to medics who were waiting to take her to hospital.”

Police meanwhile managed to trace the child’s mother —a student living in the building, who was also hospitalised. Police say they are waiting to question her before deciding what she might be charged with.
