  • Baby found in storm drain in Newlands East

A newborn baby has been pulled out of a storm drain after a dramatic three-hour rescue operation.

Doctor Timothy Hardcastle treats a baby in hospital after she was rescued from a storm water pipe in Durban, South Africa, Monday, Feb. 11, 2019.

The local community came together to help the rescue effort by donating kitchen cupboard doors to reinforce the dig site so earth and mud wouldn't collapse on the little girl, said Wilks. "I thought no, it sounds like a kitty cat and I looked further down and saw it was a baby", said Lovedale. When they finally got to the baby they broke into the pipe and managed to reach in and grab her.

"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.

Rescue Care said the circumstances leading to the baby ending up in the drain were still unknown.Police were investigating the matter, South African media reported.

Robert Mckenzie, KZN EMS spokesman, said the baby girl had been washed around five metres down the pipe (which is around six centimetres in diameter).

It is not known how the baby got there, or who the mother is.
