It was a frantic race against time. Rescuers in eastern China saw their way through a domestic sewage pipe to reach a newborn baby trapped inside. State broadcaster CCTV said the abandoned child was discovered in a residential building in Jinhua city when worried neighbours reported a baby crying. Fire crews weren't able to get the child out at the scene. Instead they rushed the baby boy - still inside the sewage pipe - to a local hospital. Footage aired by CCTV shows them apparently breaking it away piece by piece. Miraculously the child was pulled out alive. He's now in a stable condition in hospital. CCTV said police were trying to trace the baby's parents.
