Newborn survives being tossed into storm drain...
An infant is recovering after spending two hours in a Georgia storm drain.
The search began after an 18-year-old woman showed up at a Dekalb hospital and said she had just given birth and said she put the baby in a trash can or dumpster near a service station.
Dekalb Police spokesman Officer Jason Gagnon said police searched the area of the station and found nothing.
Police located the woman's boyfriend who eventually led police to a storm drain where the baby was recovered.
The baby was rushed to Children's Hospital where it is in serious but stable condition.
Police said the baby had probably been in the drain two hours.
Police charged the boyfriend, 19-year-old Landis Stewart-Moore with cruelty to children.
The mother who has not been identified, will also be charged, according to police.
