A newborn Chinese baby was rescued from atoilet pipe after he was flushed away by his parents, state TV reports.
The tiny boy was found lodged in a sewage pipe — in a block of apartments in Jinhua, Zhejiang province — on Saturday afternoon after neighbors reported hearing crying. His placenta was still attached. Firefighters sawed out an L-shaped section wide on Saturday afternoon after neighbors reported hearing crying. The baby was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors cut around him to pull out the abandoned infant.
The 2-day-old child was reported in stable condition at a nearby hospital. News of the ordeal prompted an outpouring from strangers who came to the hospital with diapers, baby clothes, powdered milk and offers to adopt the child.

Despite the offers to adopt baby called Baby No. 59, a doctor at the hospital said the boy would be handed over to social services if his parents do not claim him, Zhejiang News said. Police are treating the case as an attempted homicide, and are looking for the mother and anyone else involved in the incident.
The landlord of the building in Pujiang County told Zhejiang News that it was unlikely the birth took place in the toilet room because there was no evidence of blood and she was not aware of any recent pregnancies among her tenants.
