This is the miraculous moment a newborn baby buried alive in India is saved by villagers who spotted his foot poking out the ground.

The boy’s rescuers heard muffled cries when they began digging the ground to build a house in the Sonoura village of Siddharthnagar, in northern India’s Uttar Pradesh.

They rushed to the source of the whimpers and noticed a single dusty leg above the ground as they began a frantic race against time to dig the baby free from the soil.

Video footage shows a villager desperately trying to pinpoint the baby’s arms, before he pulls the child up and out of the ground, its tiny body smothered in dust.

The baby lays motionless for some moments on the floor as one of his rescuers checks to see if the boy breathing.

At this point the baby miraculously begins to wiggle its arms and legs.

Villagers quickly rushed the boy to a nearby hospital where doctors performed tests that revealed he had swallowed mud that was blocking his airway.

Medical staff treating the baby say he is in a stable condition but remains in hospital under supervision.

It is not known why the baby was buried or how long he had been dumped there for.

A local village woman has since come forward to adopt the child.

A police case has been filed against an unidentified person in the district and an investigation is underway.
