Newborn miraculously survives after being buried alive for seven hours

Brazilian newborn baby girl survives seven hours buried alive

A newborn indigenous baby girl in Brazil survived seven hours of being buried alive by her family, prosecutors said Thursday, following her rescue.

"We are investigating whether it was an attempted infanticide or if she thought the baby was dead", state prosecutor Paulo Roberto do Prado told AFP. Her mother, a 15-year-old who gave birth in the bathroom, said the baby fell on the bathroom floor and hit her head, Globo reports.

Salvation came for the baby following an anonymous tip received by the police about a death that has not been reported.

Although the newborn is said to be recovering from the terrifying ordeal, doctors treating the baby girl say she still remains in intensive care and is under observation. The police visited the house and officers were digging the shallow grave she was buried in when they heard a faint cry.

The naked infant still had her umbilical cord attached when she was dug out of a 50 cm pit in a backyard.

She has taken been taken into care by the state.

The teen mother's grandmother, 57-year old Kutz Amin said when the baby failed to cry after being born, she chose to follow their tradition, wrap her in a cloth and buried her. Amin said the baby "showed no signs of life".

"The information we have is that the child is doing well". This was worrying because it was many hours after the event. The teenage mother has also been hospitalised due to complications following the birth.

They wanted to clarify if there were "anthropological issues" in the case linked to indigenous customs, do Prado said.

Police arrested the infant's 57-year-old grandmother and charged her with attempted murder.
