A new born baby has been rescued from a toilet in Beijing, China as police launch a search for the infant’s mother.

Residents who were close by could hear a baby crying from outside a public toilet block in Beijing and soon realised that the baby girl was lodged inside the toilet pipe.

"Her head was upside down and her body was falling into the drain. We could only vaguely see her feet from the side," said local police chief, Qian Feng. In the harrowing video of the rescue the police chief can be seen kneeling next to the toilet as he sticks his hands in and pulls out the  infant.

"There is a right-angled pipe inside the train, and the baby was almost trapped in the horizontal pipe," Qian told the Beijing Times. “She just kept crying. I looked again, and thought we should try to pull her out even if the possibility might be slim."

After the miraculous rescue residents helped the police wrap the baby up and transport her to a nearby hospital. The little girl is apparently in a stable condition and appears to be physically unscathed. Beijing authorities have launched a manhunt for the baby’s mother.
