A newborn girl was rescued by rescuers, moments after she was freed by her mother, who threw her out of her apartment and let her wedged between two building walls in Mexico City.
Video of the rescue mission released by the Secretariat of Public Security showed the moment that firefighters pulled the baby to safety after drilling through a wall in a house in Iztacalco on Tuesday evening.
Rescue workers arrived at the one-storey house after residents reported loud crying noises.
The girl had still attached her umbilical cord when she was discovered lying in a nine-foot deep hole surrounded by pipes and bricks.

The search and rescue team had to enter a neighbor’s house and cut through the wall of the building to reach the baby without injuring her.
Medical tests showed that the newborn had early signs of hypothermia.
Paramedic Eloísa Herrera, a mother of two who has been a rescue worker for 19 years, breastfed the baby when she was taken to a local hospital.
“Her heartbeat continued to fall. It occurred to me that fasting, low glucose in babies is also a cause that endangers their lives, “Herrera said ForoTV.
“I’m breastfeeding my baby and I decided to share my baby’s milk to raise her temperature and have a little glucose in your system.”

The newborn was reported in a stable condition.
Authorities have yet to find the baby’s mother from Wednesday.
