Newborn baby survives 5 days in storm drain

A newborn baby survived five days in a storm drain and his mother has been charged with attempted murder, according to Sydney, Australia officials.

Cyclists heard the cries of the 5-day-old baby on Sunday and discovered him at the bottom of the road-side drain. It took six people to lift the 440-pound concrete lid that covered the drain and retrieve the child, according to the Daily Telegraph. 

The mother admits to dumping the newborn there last week after giving birth at a Sydney hospital, according to court documents.

"This baby was incredibly lucky that it was left where it was, because it was left in a natural incubator: not too hot, not too cold and protected from weather and from predators," Dr. Andrew McDonald told CNN. He said the child survived on its natural reserves of fluids and other nutrients.

Launch pad cameras show new view of rocket explosion

The up-close and intense footage from the failed launch attempt of the Antares rocket was just released on Monday, nearly a month after the rocket exploded in flames

Spectator video had previously been published of the explosion, but footage from the launch pad cameras were sealed for investigation before Monday when AmericaSpace posted it on YouTube.

Experts say it's a miracle that cameras even survived the explosion.

The video features a compilation of four cameras surrounding the launch pad, showing the explosion at full speed then slow motion. Watch it here if you're on a mobile device.
