People heard some faint cries at a village in Uttar Pradesh.
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.
They tripped upon a mountain of mud and sand from which the leg of a new born was stuck out. The baby was buried alive. 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.
