A pooch named Ping Pong found a newborn in the soil after the animal sniffed out the baby; the child was buried by his 15-year-old mother, who was later arrested by police, according to the Daily Mail.
A dog heroically saved a newborn baby in northern Thailand after it was buried alive in the dirt in a farmer's field, the tabloid reported on Friday.
Following the unusual discovery, Ping Pong led its owner Usa Nisaika to the baby boy so he could notice a small leg poking from the ground.
Nisaika, in his turn, hastily dug the baby up and immediately took the child to a hospital.
Local medics said that the newborn was not seriously injured in the horrific ordeal.
