Fortunately residents in the apartment building reported the sound of a baby crying in a sewer pipe and called authorities. The baby was eventually extracted from the 4 inch wide pipe and remains in a stable condition despite being covered in crap. No word on who the parents are.
A father is suing a New Jersey high school for $40 million because his 16 year old son was cut from the track team.
