Mom says baby in toilet was an accident

A mother in China tells police she tried to save her newborn baby after he got stuck in a sewage pipe. The dramatic rescue of the baby boy was caught on video last Saturday.

Tenants in the apartment building called law enforcement after they heard quiet cries and saw a small foot in the opening of a toilet pipe.

Rescuers feared harming the baby and couldn't pull him free at first, so they sawed off a section of the pipe containing the baby and brought it to a hospital in Jinhua.
