Newborn Survives Being Dumped in a Toilet in China

by in Parenting, Unusual Baby Stories

An infant is lucky to be a live after he was stuffed in a plastic bag shortly after birth and dumped in a toilet in China.  Thankfully a passerby heard his faint cries and worked to rescue the tiny baby.

Li Qingshu was walking past the public toilets in Nenjiang County, north-east China when he heard muffled screams coming from nearby. On closer inspection he noticed that the screams were coming from a red plastic bag dumped in one of the toilet pits.

When firefighters arrived they fished the bag from the small hole using a wooden pole and were stunned to find a baby boy inside who was miraculously alive inspite of being in -30 degrees Celsius in the hole.

The baby was rushed to hospital and once he is stable, will be adopted by a local family. The police have not yet found the person who left the baby in such a state.

With over 1.3 billion population China has strict laws forbidding couples from having more than one child and such cases are rare.

  1. What kind of parent would do something like this? This is insanity throwing your kid inside a plastic bag. This is not the answer in solving your problems away. Money is not a factor because all of us can work and gain income in defferent ways. I wish the parents of this child will realize how heavy the sin is by throwing away your child.

    I have a new baby, I can’t even imagine doing anything to make her uncomfortable.
    I also can’t imagine a woman giving birth and not feel an overwhelming amount of love for the baby she just grew and nourished in her tummy- unbelievable!
