The case of a newborn boy who was rescued from a sewage pipe in eastern China is being treated as an attempted homicide, according to police.

Firefighters rescued an infant who was found trapped inside the pipe after being flushed down a toilet in a public restroom of a residential building in Zhejiang on Saturday.

An Associated Press story on USA Today reported that a building tenant heard the baby crying and notified authorities. The infant was trapped in a joint of pipe with an approximate 3-inch diameter. Rescuers sawed out part of the pipe along a ceiling just below the restroom, and the pipe to a hospital, where firefighters and medics tore apart the pipe and freed the child.
