Newborn Baby Rescued From Storm Drain

Newborn Baby Rescued From Storm Drain

A newborn baby rescued from a storm drain is recovering at a hospital in South Africa. It was a heartbreaking moment passerbys in Durban, South Africa heard a baby’s cries coming from a storm drain. That’s when one of the strangers climbed into the drain and saw the newborn baby girl.

First responders were quickly called to the scene to assist with her removal which involved breaking into the drain with a hammer and chisel. This miraculous video shows the baby girl being removed from the storm drain and carried to safety. She was immediately rushed to the hospital where doctors assessed her condition.

The newborn still had her umbilical cord attached, so doctors estimate she was no more than three days old. And despite the traumatic conditions, the infant only sustained minor injuries. Authorities do not know who her parents are but an investigation is currently underway.

Children are a gift from God and it’s so upsetting to know that someone would toss their baby in a storm drain, like a piece of trash. Thankfully, these bystanders stepped in and helped this newborn get to safety. We are praying for this sweet, innocent baby girl.

Psalm 127: 3-5 “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
