BEIJING (CNN) — Tenants in an east China apartment building first heard the cry, like the mewling of a rabbit or a cat.

Then they saw an incredible thing — a newborn’s foot in the opening of a toilet pipe.

When rescuers arrived Saturday, they first tried to pull the child free by cutting the pipe. But that didn’t work, and the baby remained stuck.

So they sawed away the entire pipe, with the infant still inside, and brought the section to a hospital in Jinhua.

Working together, doctors and rescuers used pliers to pull away bits of the pipe, eventually revealing the baby, its shoulders and head pressed against the pipe’s lining.

On Wednesday, the infant, a boy referred to as “Baby 59,” is in stable condition and is drinking formula, doctors told CNN.

His story of improbable survival is making headlines across the globe, but…
