A newborn baby has miraculously survived being thrown from a bridge into a river inside a rucksack.
According to reports, witnesses narrated how a man threw a rucksack into the Capibaribe River in Sao Lourenco da Mata, Brazil, on the morning of 17 November.
The baby was saved by two fishermen under the bridge who saw the bag crash into the river and hearing the baby’s cries.
One of the fishermen, Pedro, said his partner “grabbed the rod, picked up the bag and handed it to me.
“When I opened it, it was a child.
The two men immediately called Military Police, who took the baby to a nearby maternity hospital.
According to reports, the baby girl was born only hours earlier, and the umbilical cord cut ‘unprofessionally’.
Health officials noted that her condition was stable and she remains under observation at hospital.
