An absolutely horrific scene had a happy ending for one baby over the weekend.

Video captured firefighters saving a two-day-old baby from the inside of a sewage pipe.

Residents of an apartment building tipped off authorities after hearing the baby’s cries in a toilet on the fourth floor.

After firefighters couldn’t remove the baby from the toilet, they elected to chop off a whole portion of the piping and took it to the hospital where the baby, with umbilical cord and placenta still in place, was freed.

One police officer said, “Fortunately the baby survived. But the person [who abandoned him] is still suspected of attempted murder.” The parents are still at-large.

Amazingly, one media outlet says 100,000 babies are abandoned every year in China.
