Student Mum Dumps New-Born Baby In Hostel Toilet
A Chinese student hid her pregnancy for 9 months and then dumped the baby in the toilet of a girls hostel
the student dormitory
Luckily, the baby, a girl, remained stuck as the pipe wasn't wide enough to allow it down.
Student Pulse gathered that the student, who had hid her pregnancy throughout the nine months, ran away after the baby began to cry in the toilet pipe.
The baby's cries attracted other students to the scene and firemen were called to rescue it.
The Fire Brigade spokesman, Tao Fang, told a local newspaper that it was difficult getting the baby out.
“It was impossible to get the baby out from above. She had fallen into the toilet and gone down the pipes were she had got stuck between the third and fourth floors,"
"We used an angle grinder to break open the pipeline on the third floor and we could then push the child up to colleagues on the fourth floor where she was handed to medics who were waiting to take her to hospital.”
The mother has been arrested and taken to the hospital after which she will be charged.
