A passerby heard the baby crying in the drain, but could not see them due to the darkness and called 911.

Emergency responders arrived on scene and used a confined space protocol and made entry through another entrance into the drain and were able to safely extract the woman and baby around 7:15pm.

The woman was transported by Life Flight to a Nashville Hospital. The extent of her injuries are unknown, but she was conscious, talking and no visible signs of serious injury.
