Rescued Dog Barks Nonstop At Storm Drain, Ended Up Saving An Abandoned Baby’s Life

 On a routine morning walk one morning, Georgie was transfixed on a storm drain and began barking at it. Charmaine heard faint meowing sounds coming from the drain and got on her knees to check if there was a cat stuck inside.

Charmaine Keevy, a 63-year-old resident of Port Elizabeth, South Africa , rescued a Dachshund named Georgie a short time ago.


So Georgie decided it had been his address pay the great deed forward. What happened next is nothing in need of a miracle.



On a routine morning walk one morning, Georgie was transfixed on a storm drain and commenced barking at it.


Charmaine heard faint meowing sounds coming from the drain and got on her knees to see if there was a cat stuck inside.



To her utter shock, she realized the sound was actually that of a baby crying.


Since the drain had a concrete slab covering it, Charmaine flagged down a car to hunt additional help. That help came within the sort of a person named Cornie Viljoen.


Cornie and Charmaine used a steel bar to pry open the concrete slab. The drain was quite 6-feet deep, but Cornie jumped in without a reconsideration .


In the process, he got stung by a military of red ants.



“When I got into the opening it had been above my head and it had been so narrow that I had to travel down on my knees and that i couldn’t bend over so had to feel down for the baby below,” he told DailyMail. “The red ants were stinging my legs on the other hand I felt this baby’s leg then saw the baby and that i realized that this was a criminal offense scene so I took a flash picture and handed my phone up to Charmaine. I didn’t know if the baby was injured so i attempted to select her up very carefully and really slowly and she or he was so small. I just wanted to carry her for a short time but I knew that she needed urgent medical help.”


Fortunately, the red ants hadn’t gotten to the baby yet. The baby was naked with its duct still attached. Cornie and Charmaine immediately called the police. The police and ambulance arrived soon after to require the baby to the hospital.



According to the police, the sole way for the baby to possess gotten there's if someone had placed her there then covered the drain with the concrete slab.


“There may be a possibility that the one that did this might have come from outside the world and placed the kid there. We are appealing for witnesses and therefore the mother of this baby to return forward.” police spokeswoman Colonel Priscilla Naidu said.


Meanwhile, back at the hospital, the baby was treated for hypothermia and respiratory problems. They estimated she had been within the freezing drain water for a minimum of a couple of hours.


Charmaine believed it had been fate that brought her to the baby, as she usually takes Georgie on a special walking route. The baby was named Grace April. Charmaine put up this update to let everyone know Grace April was doing okay.



We are so glad Grace April survived this ordeal and are thankful to Charmaine and Georgie for his or her alertness and quick thinking.
