'Miracle Baby' Rescued From 28-Foot-Deep Pit

Earlier this month in Jacmel, Haiti, a 15-year-old mother dropped her newborn baby girl down a 28-foot deep outhouse toilet and left her to die.

The baby miraculously survived after Toussaint, a teenage boy, saw the mother’s trail of blood and followed it, attempting to rescue the baby himself before calling police.

The police and an American U.N. soldier rescued the girl and took her to the not-for-profit Hands and Feet Project, a missionary-run Christian orphanage founded by members of the Grammy-winning music group Audio Adrenaline to reach out to the Haitian community.

“After being dropped 30 feet into a pit and left for dead, and there were no bruises, no signs of trauma, and she was resting, I knew I had witnessed a miracle,” said the U.N. soldier Darry Williams. “Everyone involved knew it.”

The little girl is now in full custody of Hands and Feet Project and she will continue to be cared for by the group.

“She is now ours,” said Drex Stuart, leader of the home and the father of Audio Adrenaline lead singer Mark Stuart. “A policeman from the station, no doubt a believer, gave us the baby’s first name. He said that Christ must have been there for her, so the three words for ‘Christ was there’ [in Creole] would be ‘Christela.’ Her last name is in honor of Audio Adrenaline’s song ‘Beautiful.’ This word translates to ‘Belle.’”

Christela’s birth mother was placed under arrest.
