Local police say that, so far, they believe her account of how the baby ended up in the pipe.
“That day she felt stomachaches,” said Jiang Song, the vice director of police. “So she went to the toilet. It was actually close to her due date and the baby just slid out.”
The police said the mother made attempts to retrieve the baby with a stick, then decided to flush the toilet to clear away the blood.
