A newborn baby in China whose dramatic rescue from a filthy sewage pipe has elicited an outpouring of sympathy and outrage from across the globe is in stable condition and improving, according to nurses at the hospital where he is being treated.

The baby was admitted to the hospital in critical condition with a suspected fracture in the top of his skull after spending at least several hours wedged in a sewage pipe leading from a public toilet in the city of Jinhua in the Chinese province of Zhajiang.

Firefighters responded to a call from a building resident who reported hearing a baby crying in the toilet on the fourth floor.

A nurse told the Daily Mail that the mother of the child has been found.

“She is right now in the hospital,” said the nurse. “I heard she is a 22 year-old single woman. I don’t know the reason she abandoned the baby.”
