CHINA (PIX11) — The baby who was rescued from a sewer pipe in China has reportedly left the hospital.

The news comes a day after his mother turned herself into local authorities.

According to cops, the woman claims she was having stomach pains and rushed to the toilet where she ended up giving birth.

She claims she couldn’t hold on to the baby and he slid into the drain. The woman then flushed the toilet to clear away the blood, and he got stuck, she said.

According to authorities, the woman regrets what happened and will not be charged with a crime.
