We would like to congratulate the rescue personnel and paramedics who worked together to rescue this little girl today.

Authorities say they were called when residents heard a baby crying from deep within the concrete storm drain in Durban, on the eastern coast of South Africa.

"It's really a miracle that this baby was saved. Rescue efforts are underway try to rescue it", he said.

The baby was found to be suffering from mild hypothermia when she was freed.

"We went down to the drain and put the lights on and I couldnt see and I took off my top and I could see the baby there in the corner", said Lovdale. "I thought no, it sounds like a kitty cat and I looked further down and saw it was a baby", said Lovedale.

Cllr De Boer said she has already received several requests from community members to foster or adopt the baby. The newborn, believed to be between one and three days old, was rescued after a three-hour rescue mission.

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

"Rescue workers are busy trying to get to the baby at the moment", said Rescue Care's operations director, Garrith Jamieson.

The baby was transported to Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital this morning.
