A newborn child has been saved after being discovered buried alive on a farm.
The infant was rescued by a labourer who saw a human face sticking out from the ground while tending to the fields in Khatima, India on Wednesday, November 11.
Video clips of the incidence reveals the man, other eyewitnesses and the cops working together to get the child out of the ground.
Thankfully, they were able to save its life.
The dust-smothered baby seemed unresponsive as a lady wiped its face and wraps it in a brightly-coloured scarf.
Thankfully, after the baby was taken to a hospital to be treated, reports indicate that, it is now in a stable condition.
Mystery remains how the child ended up being buried on the farm and it has still not been revealed whether it is a girl or boy.
Last month, another child was also found buried alive in a clay pot and placed several feet below the ground surface.
A man was burying his own child which had passed away in the hospital when he began to overhear crying at a cemetery in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
After excavating about two to three feet of dirt, he dicovered the four-day-old newborn girl who had been buried alive in a clay pot.
Hitesh Sirohi told the Times of India he discovered the girl wrapped in a cloth and weeping.
“At one point I thought that my daughter had come alive,” he said at the time.
“But the voice was actually coming from the pot.”
A cemetery security guard informed the authorities that the child was taken to a nearby hospital.
Alka Sgarna, the medical superintendent who was in charge of the child’s rehabilitation, told CNN: “The baby had some infections and weighed only 1.5kg (3.3 pounds).”
The newborn also had other breathing problems and needed a ventilator, with medics evaluation that the girl had been buried in the ground for several hours.
