A mother whose newborn baby was rescued from a toilet pipe in China is in hospital after nearing “mental collapse” while the alleged father has requested a DNA test, state-run media reported Friday.

The mother of the child, who became lodged in the pipe after she gave birth on the toilet, is “on the edge of mental collapse, because she has not rested after giving birth, and is being treated in hospital” the Modern Gold Daily newspaper reported.

She had “suffered a lot because of public pressure,” it said, citing the baby’s grandfather, adding the baby had been collected from hospital by its grandparents.

The family come from Jinhua, in Zhejiang province, where the paper is also based.

Another report, by the state-run China News Network, cited local police as saying they had found the baby’s suspected father, but need to carry out a DNA test to confirm his paternity.

“Although the mother says she has found the father, we need to be sure . . . he is not sure if he is the father, and requested a DNA test,” the report quoted local policeman Zhang Jianbo as saying.

“He said that if the baby was his, he would take responsibility for it,” he added.

    The Chinese Police (Government) is trying to cover up the case as being an accident.

    Please do not try to fool the world with such nonsense. We are not stupid.

    The case is likely nothing but a cool-blooded murder attempt and it ought to be handled with justice as such.

    Thanks to the mercy by our God, the little boy survived and is now recovering well.
