Some people from China heard the baby. The baby cried in their building. But they didn't know from where. They called firefighters who came to help them.

The firefighters then found the baby. It was in a pipe for water. They cut this pipe. But it was difficult and it took an hour. They took the baby to the hospital. Doctors said it will be OK.

Interesting words: pipe (tube), leaders (bosses), leave (go away from).
