A newborn baby has been rescued from a drain pipe in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) on Monday morning.

The baby was washed six metres down the storm water drain.

Hackenberg showed a lot of the things that made him a failure with the New York Jets, making a lot of bad throws and taking sacks. He finished the 26-0 loss with just 10 completions off 23 attempts, racking up all of 87 yards and tallying an interception.

He added that the child will now be transferred to a different hospital where social services will look after her future welfare.

Emergency services dug into the pipe, cut it open, and managed to get the little one out.

'Police will now be trying to investigate the circumstances that led to the baby being in the drain in the first place and will also be trying to trace the mother, ' he said.

Thelma Johnson who lives next door to where rescue workers and paramedics drilled for the baby, said, "Today is my birthday and I feel like this miracle baby is my gift".
