Baby 59's 'Father' Turns Up To Take Son Home

A man claiming to be the father of a newborn baby found in a sewer pipe in eastern China has come forward, police have said.

He turned up at the hospital where the trapped infant, known as Baby 59 because of his incubator number, was carefully cut out after being rescued by firefighters.

The man, who was not named by police, met the 22-year-old mother of the baby last year. She only realised she was pregnant earlier this year.
