Miracles Update: Chinese Newborn Boy Rescued From Sewer Pipe After Being Flushed Down Toilet
Posted May 28 2013 2:31pm
UPDATE 5/29/13: It turns out the 22-year-old woman who reported the baby crying was actually the mother . She is a single woman who claims the baby slipped down the squat toilet. It's entirely possible she is telling the truth.
It's still a miracle the baby survived.
Some things that happen in life can only be classified as a miracle. Like the rescue in China of a newborn baby boy who was flushed down a squat toilet in an apartment building in Jinhua, Zhejiang province. Tenants apparently heard some cries from the sewer pipes, and that's how they discovered there was a two-day old baby stuck in there. Firefighters cut away a section of the pipe containing the baby, and medical personnel in the local hospital carefully cut around the pipe to be able to remove the baby.
Baby 59 is in stable condition.
If you watch the video below you will see just how miraculous the rescue was.
There have been offers to adopt the boy, but that's not going to happen. If the parents don't claim him social services will take over.
Since boys are the preferred sex in China, as a result of their "one-child" policy, one can only assume that they already had a child and did not want to be penalized for having a second. It's heartbreaking on so many levels, but at least the boy survived.
This baby's soul obviously has things it wants to accomplish this lifetime. God speed Baby 59.
