Chinese Newborn Buried - Report: baby survives being buried alive after parents thought premature baby was stillborn

A Chinese newborn was buried alive for almost two hours as her family believed she was stillborn.

The baby girl was born premature at home, after her mother went into labour in China’s Liaoning Province.

But the tot was later dramatically dug up and saved by her father after a doctor treating her mum for what was assumed to have been a miscarriage said there was a possibility the youngster could still be alive.

Lu Xiaoyun lives with her husband He Yong, their 7-year-old daughter, and Lu’s mother in Dongdong, northeast China’s Liaoning Province.

Recently, Lu, who believed she was four months pregnant, was working on the farm when she suddenly experienced sharp stomach pains.

She immediately called husband He who rushed back from work to find her in a pool of blood after giving birth to a seemingly dead child.

He immediately called an ambulance.

When they arrived staff asked to check the baby but Lu told them there was no point.

While she was taken to hospital her mother buried the baby under a tree in the yard.

After a doctor said the baby’s body should have been checked properly for signs of life first, he rushed home.

When he got back to the farm he discovered that his mother-in-law had buried the baby and began frantically digging to get to the body.

He found that the tiny tot was still breathing and took her to hospital where doctors said the youngster was at six months gestation not four.

After the child was treated for three days the family ran out of money and had to discharge her.

“My mother-in-law has chronic diseases, and I also have a 7-year-old daughter. My wife doesn’t have a job. I am the only one who works,” Mr He said.

Thanks to donations from well wishers the family has been able to return the baby to hospital where she is being kept in an incubator.

    Thank God the father believed what he had been told and rushed home to dig his baby up. Thank God that kind and generous people helped the family financially so their baby girl could be returned to the hospital.
