The story of the Chinese baby rescued from a sewage pipe just got sadder. Apparently the newborn’s mother was present the whole time during the two-hour rescue but did not admit to having given birth to the baby boy until confronted by police. Police reportedly found blood-stained toilet paper and baby toys in the woman’s apartment in the building where the baby was discovered, China’s state-run media reported. The woman reportedly told police that she could not afford an abortion—and that she tried to save the baby when he slipped into the sewer line and she alerted the landlord. She said she wanted to raise him, despite the claim that his father has denied responsibility after a one-night stand.
