After flash floods killed at least 41 people in central Algeria this week, a baby was found alive by rescuers after spending four days in a pool of mud.
“It’s a miracle, really a miracle to find it alive after all this time,” the town governor of Ghardaia, Yahia Fahim, told national radio. The state-run APS news agency said the 4-month-old baby appeared in good health after being discovered late Saturday and had been handed to a family while authorities looked for its parents.
The governor has also said the baby’s photo would be posted in all local media for the family to recognize it.
It is not known whether the baby was a boy or a girl.
