China baby rescued from sewage pipe out of hospital
« on: May 30, 2013, 05:00:26 AM »
Via the BBC:

The Chinese baby boy rescued from a sewage pipe has been released from hospital, officials say.

The newborn baby had been in hospital in Jinhua city, Zhejiang province, since being cut free from the pipe on Saturday.

His 22-year-old mother, who has not been named, said the baby slipped into the toilet and went down the pipe by accident as she gave birth.

Reports suggested the baby left with a relative, but it remains unclear who.

An official from the Pujiang county propaganda office, which is in Jinhua, told the BBC that the baby had been released from hospital, but did not identify who took him home.

Some local reports suggest the baby's father has made himself known but others suggested other relatives had become involved.

Meanwhile state media reports that while the incident, which took place on Saturday, is being considered an accident, investigations are ongoing.
