The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

A day-old baby girl was res­cued yes­ter­day from a pit la­trine by po­lice and fire­fight­ers at Kamirithu Polytech­nic in Limuru, Ki­ambu county.

A sec­ond-year stu­dent who was bleed­ing was rushed to hospi­tal with the baby for ma­ter­nity DNA test­ing.

Prin­ci­pal Gichanga Nju­guna said, “Fe­male stu­dents re­ported to our of­fi­cers [at 7am] that there were blood stains on the floor of a la­trine and they had heard a baby cry­ing. We all rushed to con­firm.”

The fire bri­gade ar­rived shortly af­ter, de­mol­ished the 30-foot la­trine and res­cued the baby.

County Ed­u­ca­tion chief of­fi­cer Anne Gi­chohi said, “The baby has been cleaned and we have been in­formed that she and her mother are in sta­ble con­di­tion.”
