|rescued baby girl|
Luck smiled on a 4-month-old baby buried alive by her own father, as she was saved by neighbours on Saturday, in Asaba, Delta state, Nigeria.
The father of the baby, Mr. Macaulay Onitcha, 25-years, a laborer, claimed he committed the ungodly act because his wife allegedly refused to have sex with him.
The baby girl, Edna Macaulay was rescued by a good Samaritan, Mr. Saturday Ekama who suffered machete cuts from the father of the baby girl while trying to rescue her as from her father who was busy covering the grave.
The child is currently undergoing treatment at Saint Francis Hospital, Okapra Inland while the father is now assisting the state CID Asaba in their investigations.
