A two-day-old girl in Palakkad, Kerala was flushed down a toilet and recovered when plumbers tried to clear the clogged passage. The incident occurred at the house of a doctor couple who run a clinic from there. To their horror, they discovered the body of the baby girl, which was not decomposed yet. As they pulled it out, they were shocked to see a baby's head pop up.
Early reports had suggested that her parents might have brought the infant on the pretext of a check-up and then flushed her down the toilet. Moreover, the baby whose placenta was still attached was stuck inside the duct of the toilet.
Based on the complaint filed by Rahman, the police have filed a case against the newborn's parents, who are said to be absconding. "We are analysing the records, but we haven't been able to identify her parents yet".

Sadly, two of the children were drugged with "a significant amount" of diphenhydramine, which is an ingredient found in Benadryl. Police hadn't found the bodies of Devonte Hart and his adoptive sisters, 16-year-old Hannah Hart and 12-year-old Sierra.
"There wasn't much of a foul smell emanating from the toilet", a sub-inspector of the Nattukal Police Station told The NewsMinute. However, as the placenta was intact with the baby, the mother could have delivered her inside the washroom and made a decision to dump her in the commode, said cops. The police was immediately informed once the body of the baby was recovered.
The records of all the patients were being checked, media reports said. Seeing the colour of the blood, the domestic worker mistook it for muddy water, ' the cops were quoted as saying by the TNM.
