According to the Beijing Times, Beijing police successfully saved a new-born baby girl who was abandoned in the sewer in a public toilet in Xicheng District, Beijing on Sunday. 

According to the police, they received a call saying that some people heard baby crying in a public toilet. They arrived quickly at the spot and found a baby stuck in the sewer of the toilet.

"The baby's head was upside down and the whole body has fallen into the sewer. I could vaguely saw the baby's feet from the side," said police officer Qian Feng when recalling the situation.

Without knowing the situation inside the sewer, Qian considered firstly to demolish the urinal. However, it would take too much time and the baby kept crying. Finally Qian caught the baby’s body in the sewer and pulled her out cautiously barehanded.

The baby was immediately sent to hospital for treatment. Judging from the blood left on the site and secretions on the baby, people speculated that the baby was abandoned by the mother after she gave birth in the toilet. The speculation has not been confirmed.

According to Beijing Times, the baby girl is now in hospital for further treatment, with relatively stable vital signs. She doesn't have any obvious defects from the appearance.
