A newborn baby girl was rescued from a stormwater drain in South Africa on Monday (Feb. 11) after being stuck for several hours.

Footage shows rescuers lifting the tiny child to safety after digging down to a pipe and cutting through it near a home at Newlands East, north of Durban, on the country's east coast.

Bernadette Wicks, a reporter for a local news outlet, said that people had provided doors from their kitchen cupboards to help workers hold back earth as they attempted to remove the baby from the pipe.

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.
