China baby survives eight days buried alive


BEIJING: A Chinese baby born with a cleft lip was abandoned by his parents and buried in a cardboard box two days later, but rescued alive eight days further on, media reported. The parents left the baby in a remote countryside in the southern province of Guangxi, before he was buried, apparently by relatives who believed he had died, Guangxi Online News said. But water and air were able to seep into the box, the report said. He was discovered when a woman heard him crying as she was picking herbs, the post by the state broadcaster late Tuesday said.
