Four people noticed a newborn baby on Monday after draining, and Garrith Jamieson, head of Durban's rescue service, said in a statement from CNN.
Rescue services used a hill and hammer to break into the sewer, Jamieson said. The entire operation lasted almost four hours.
After being removed and transported, the baby was flown to the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital under urgent supervision.
The dramatic video showed that the baby was raised to safety.
It is believed that the baby with her intact was between one and three days.
Said she was named Sibanisethu (in our ray of light) and Gabriella.
"It's really a miracle that this baby has been saved. The doctors gave this baby a clean health bill, and it will be transferred to another hospital, ”said regional health officer dr. In Sibongisen, Dhlomo.
