Baby Rescue- Newlands

A newborn baby girl was rescued from a stormwater drain in South Africa on Monday (Feb. 11) after being stuck for several hours.

She was quickly treated by paramedics before being flown by helicopter to Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital. The pipe was about six centimetres in diameter. We would like to congratulate the rescue personnel and paramedics who worked together to rescue this little girl today.

KwaZulu-Natal emergency medical services spokesperson Robert McKenzie told the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) that the baby was "washed about 5 or 6 metres further down the drain pipe".




Local PR councillor, Shontel De Boer, who was also at scene this morning said witnessing the rescue mission was a "chilling" experience as everyone was hoping that the baby was alive. When they finally got to the baby they broke into the pipe and managed to reach in and grab her.

"They have been calling me to find out how does one get to adopt the miracle baby", she said.

"Currently she is in a stable condition and the KZN EMS helicopter is now taking off to get the child to the hospital", said McKenzie.
