The dog’s owner, 41-year-0ld Usa Nisaika, noticed what the dog was doing and then saw the baby’s leg sticking out of the dirt. As reported by the Mirror, Nisaika proceeded to dig up the baby and rushed him to a hospital. Miraculously, the 5 lb 2 oz baby was healthy and unharmed from the traumatic ordeal.
The authorities have arrested the infant’s 15-year-old mother – the girl admitted that she gave birth to the little boy and explained that she tried to bury him because she feared that her parents would be angry.
Good boy Ping Pong!
