A baby rescued from a sewage pipe in Eastern China has been recovering in hospital and is now in a stable condition.

In shocking scenes, the little boy was cut from the pipe by firefighters after residents in the building reported hearing the sound of crying. They spent nearly an hour taking the tube apart using pliers and saws finally recovering the child whose placenta was still attached.

These latest images show him recovering in an incubator with doctors saying that he's healthy apart from scratches on his head, arms and legs.

According to reports, the baby was abandoned by his mother-- a common problem in China owing to a strict family planning rules.

Interesting words: sewage (waste), pliers (big scissors), saw (long tool with for cutting wood), owing to (because of).
