“The public came and we started to see on how we can save the baby while we wait for the County fire rescue team to come in aid. The fire team delayed and we used our own mean and we managed to remove the baby and he was taken to hospital,” said the witness. 

The witness said that the act was condemned by villagers. 

“Everybody was angry and especially women and they started observing one another and another and they managed to get her,” said the source.
