The local community came together to help the rescue effort by donating kitchen cupboard doors to reinforce the dig site so earth and mud wouldn't collapse on the little girl, said Wilks.

A bystander had spotted the newborn after climbing down into the drain on Monday, Garrith Jamieson, head of Durban Rescue Care, said in a statement obtained by CNN.

A newborn baby girl was rescued from more than 20 feet down a storm drain by emergency workers in South Africa on Monday after a grueling four-hour mission.

The little girl had been dumped in Newlands East, Durban. "To be found alive and well, crying and in good spirits, I really do think it's a miracle". "To see that baby, I had tears in my face", one man said.

New study suggests smoking cannabis can make men more fertile
Experts looked at the effect of smoking an average of two joints a week among 662 sub-fertile men in Boston, Massachusetts. But it's possible, the authors note in their study, that other unknown factors could still play a role.

After being transferred to Chief Albert Luthuli hospital, news came through that this courageous little one was doing well.

"She's been awake, responsive and crying".

The baby was stabalised on scene before she was transported to hospital. "The baby has now been transferred to a step down hospital". Rescuers believe the girl, who is thought to be between one and three days old, was washed 10 to 15 feet down the drain after being "dumped", according to the ABC. "But from a medical point of view‚ things are looking good‚" he said.
