Over the weekend, a Shanghai hospital managed to save an 8-dayold infant from Mongolia who was suffering from a life-threatening congenital heart disease in a race against time and bad weather when Typhoon Lekima battered the city.

"The baby is in stable condition now with a strong heartbeat and a ruddy complexion. He'll grow up as healthily as other children," said Jia Bing, chief surgeon in the newborn's operation and director of the cardiovascular center at the Children's Hospital of Fudan University.

It was the second time that the hospital had successfully treated a child suffering from congenital heart disease through cross-border medical rescue. The first instance, which happened in April, also involved a newborn from Mongolia.
