Shock Video: Chinese newborn rescued from sewage pipe

This morning on radio, Glenn watched a chilling video on TheBlaze.com. The video captures an that infant miraculously survived and was rescued from a sewage pipe after being flushed down the toilet.

Pat describes the scene in the video: "They cut the baby out of the pipes and the baby's alive.  And they carefully slice open the pipe and they cut a section out where they knew the baby was and then they carefully sliced it in half, open it up and there's the baby, crying.  And they finally got it out."

"They saved the baby," Glenn says.

"That's a tough one to watch," Pat adds.

Here's the video Glenn described on radio (WARNING: Video of the rescue below may disturb some):

While shocking, what may be more surprising than the video itself is the location: China. Workers are racing to save the newborn in a country well-known for it's high infant mortality and abortion rate due to their one child per family policy.

The story on TheBlaze notes that the child was in fact flushed down the toilet on purpose, but this victim to China's policies survived.

While in America saving the baby isn't something that would be questioned in the slightest, they same isn't necessarily the case. The newborn was a boy, which Glenn notes may have contributed to the efforts that went into his rescue, but that's just speculation.

The attention being given to the story is growing, which will hopefully raise awareness to the horrifying practices with infanticide in China.

**UPDATE**

TheBlaze is reporting that authorities have found the mother of the Chinese newborn — being called Baby No. 59 — which was rescued from the sewage pipes. The Pujian county police are treating the case as an attempted homicide.

The 6.2-pound baby still had his placenta attached to his body, reports said, suggesting he had just been born. His heart rate was low and there were grazes on his head and limbs, but otherwise he was largely unscathed, according to Zhejiang Online, the province’s official news portal.

The landlord of the building in Pujiang county told Zhejiang News that it was unlikely the birth took place in the public restroom of the building. There was no evidence of blood and the landlord was not aware of any recent pregnancies among her tenants.

Since being brought to the hospital, Baby. No. 59 has seen an outpouring of support from strangers donating diapers, baby clothes and powdered milk. There have even been offers to adopt the child.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
