Three hours after first getting the call one of the rescuers shouted up that he had the baby girl and that she was still alive and she was pulled up and out to safety.

"The Fire Department has seen the baby moving and they are trying to get to the baby". Some community members have named the baby girl, 'Storm'.

Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said emergency services were on the scene in Newlands East on the corner of Barracuda Road and Herring Way.

The baby was transported to Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital this morning.
