In China, it is not uncommon to see or discover incidents wherein children are subjected to unbelievable and rather out-of-this-world scenarios that prove the country is not that tolerable when it comes to the younger set. A newborn baby was found stuck in a sewer pipe in May 2013.
According to the Daily Mail, the authorities discovered the two-day-old baby when its 22-year-old mother confessed to the deed. Fortunately, the newborn baby was still alive when they retrieved it from the sewer pipe. The authorities found toys and objects stained with blood in her rented unit.
This proved to them that the woman was definitely the mother in question. The newborn baby was reported to be 5 pounds in weight and was temporarily called “Baby 59,” due to the fact that it was found in the 59th incubator.
When the newborn baby was retrieved, they found out he had a fractured skull and severe bruises all over his body. The firemen diligently sawed the four-inch wide pipe below the ceiling where the baby was trapped. After this, they rushed the pipe to Pujiang County People’s Hospital in eastern China so that doctors – together with the firemen- could alternatively take it apart and saved the baby.

When they finally took the pipe apart, they saw that baby ‘s arms were pinned to his side. He was still attached to the placenta, an organ attached to the lining of his mother’s womb during pregnancy. This indicated that the newborn baby was probably thrown into the toilet immediately after it was birthed.
The police said that they initially treated it as a homicide case but they were unsure of whether the mother would face actual criminal charges. According to the testimony of the mother, she hid her pregnancy from people and claimed to the authorities that the newborn baby fell into the lavatory after she unexpectedly gave birth.
