Just look at you now! The beautiful baby boy recovering after being flushed down the loo
A BABY boy is recovering in hospital after being rescued from a waste pipe in China.
The two day old mite had to be rescued by firemen after he became trapped when he was flushed down the loo by unmarried 22-year-old mother.
Images of the drama were captured on video (see picture below) and flashed around the world. The boy – who has temporarily been named Baby 59 – is now being cared for at the Pujiang County People’s Hospital in Jinhua in eastern China.
Nurse Zhang Songhe said: “We’re going to take care of the baby. We are not sure when he will be discharged.”
The nurse told reporters that the baby’s mum is with him at the hospital, adding: “We don’t know the reason why she abandoned the baby.”
Thankfully the child is now expected to make a full recovering, despite suffering injuries to his skull. News of his rescue has prompted thousands of offers of help from around the world, with well-wishers offering donations towards his care.
