Following a nail-biting three-hour rescue mission, Garreth Jamieson of Rescue care confirmed that the little girl was alive and stable. "I thought no, it sounds like a kitty cat and I looked further down and saw it was a baby", said Lovedale. Rescuers were able to make their way down the drain pipes and locate the baby.

The newborn, which doctors believe is no more than three-days-old, was freed from the drain on Monday morning after passersby heard her crying. When they finally got to the baby they broke into the pipe and managed to reach in and grab her.

Medics said she may be suffering from hypothermia but otherwise appeared unhurt.

Emergency services dug into the pipe, cut it open, and managed to get the little one out.

The area was cordoned off by police

Robert Mckenzie, KZN EMS spokesman, said the baby girl had been washed around five metres down the pipe (which is around six centimetres in diameter).

The baby, who locals have named Storm after the water drain in which she was found and her tempestuous start to life, will go into the South African care system.

Others have also been saying that the mother of the baby should not be judged because no one knows her circumstances.
