Lucknow:

Some people at a village in Uttar Pradesh heard what they took as the faint cry of a baby.

Soon, they started looking at the direction from where the sound came. In no time they reached a bushy spot near a building where construction was going on.

There, they stumbled upon a mound of mud and sand, from which the leg of a newborn stuck out.

The residents of village Sonoura in UP's Siddharth Nagar district soon went to work - they quickly dug up the mud and gently pulled out the newborn, a male.

The newborn was taken to a hospital immediately, where doctors cleaned him and checked for infection. The doctors said the newborn is stable, but he may have swallowed some mud.

A police case has been filed against an unidentified person in the district 260 km from state capital Lucknow.
