Mom of baby found in sewer pipe under toilet comes forward

BEIJING (AP) - The mother of the Chinese newborn trapped in a sewer pipe spotted underneath a toilet in a stunning ordeal caught on video has come forward.

It turns out the 22-year-old woman had raised the initial alarm and was present for the entire two-hour rescue, but did not admit giving birth until confronted by police, reports said Wednesday.

Police became suspicious when they found baby toys and blood-stained toilet paper in the woman's rented room in the building where Saturday's rescue occurred. 

The baby was taken to a hospital after the rescue and was listed in stable condition.
