Footage shows rescuers lifting the tiny child to safety after digging down to a pipe and cutting through it near a home at Newlands East, north of Durban, on the country's east coast.

Cllr De Boer said she has already received several requests from community members to foster or adopt the baby.

"Durban fire department has been down the manhole and has visuals of the actual baby quite far down the pipe".

The baby was washed six metres down the storm water drain. When they finally got to the baby they broke into the pipe and managed to reach in and grab her.

The naked baby can be heard screaming as she is brought out into the sunlight and gently placed into a towel held by a paramedic.

Medics said she may be suffering from hypothermia but otherwise appeared unhurt.

Jamieson said the baby was only a few hours old, as her umbilical cord had still been attached when she was pulled from the drain pipe.

Rising Sun Overport reports that Rescue Care paramedics together with Metro Search and Rescue and the eThekwini Fire Department worked fervently on the corner of Barracuda Road and Herring Circle in Newlands East to rescue the infant.

He added that an Air Mercy helicopter was en route to hastily transport the child to hospital.

Her cries were first noticed by a passer-by.

She's been airlifted to hospital and is in a stable condition.

Local PR councillor, Shontel De Boer, who was also at scene this morning said witnessing the rescue mission was a "chilling" experience as everyone was hoping that the baby was alive.
