I felt like a cold big wet fish had just smacked me straight in the face when i first saw this news article, what must have been going through that women’s head when she thought of plunging her baby deep into the sewers of china. I can’t imagine the life that baby will lead in years to come, seeing photo’s or videos of any child’s first appearance to the fresh air of the world is a lovely thought, the family gathering around the small baby celebrating the life, but this baby will have to look back on a photo where it is crying, covered in shit and piss, and being rescued from a sewage pipe. Not a pretty memory to have. The woman and child should receive full health support, but then again, were talking about population control and the Chinese government.

A Chinese newborn who was trapped in a sewer pipe moments after his birth has been released from hospital into the care of his grandparents.

Local officials and media reports said Thursday that authorities have concluded it was an accident, meaning his unwed mother is unlikely to be criminally charged.

The baby’s stunning, two-hour rescue from a pipe underneath a squat toilet in Zhejiang province’s Pujiang county captivated the world, prompting both horror and an outpouring of charity on behalf of the boy, who was released from a hospital late Wednesday.

The boy’s maternal grandparents took him home and the mother remains under medical care, the state-run Jinhua Evening News reported, in an account confirmed by a local police official who declined to give his name when contacted by telephone. Earlier reports had said incorrectly that the 22-year-old mother herself took the baby out of the hospital.
