Newborn baby girl stuck in stormwater drain rescued

Newborn baby girl stuck in stormwater drain rescued

A newborn baby girl was rescued from a stormwater drain in South Africa on Monday (Feb. 11) after being stuck for several hours.

The little girl had been dumped in Newlands East, Durban.

The baby was recovered and flown to a hospital in Durban where she was reportedly treated for mild hypothermia.

A resident who was out for an early morning walk thought he could hear a cat mewing from beneath a steel drain cover and lifted the lid up to look inside. Rescuers were able to make their way down the drain pipes and locate the baby. When they finally got to the baby they broke into the pipe and managed to reach in and grab her. "A helicopter is inbound to transport the baby to a nearby hospital as soon as possible", said Jamieson.

As their names suggest, the Inspire HR features a heart rate monitor, while the stock Inspire lacks this feature. Interestingly, both the devices will be sold to a few companies and health insurance members.

The baby was found trapped inside the drain and emergency services worked to free the girl.

McKenzie said police are on the scene to investigate the circumstances that lead to baby being in the drain.

Thelma Johnson who lives next door to where rescue workers and paramedics drilled for the baby, said, "Today is my birthday and I feel like this miracle baby is my gift".
