Twenty-three year old Attaa Adomah had dumped the child in the unused tank so she could marry her former boy-friend who has just returned from abroad.
A timely response by parents, community leaders and police led to rescue of the baby who is now on admission at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital for treatment.
Doctors say the baby who is currently recuperating at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital is out of danger after three hours in man-hole.
