A HERO dog saved a newborn baby after finding him in a field where his teenage mum allegedly buried him alive.
Ping Pong the six-year-old pooch was seen digging alongside a farmer’s field in Korat, Thailand, on Wednesday morning.
His owner Usa Nisaika, 41, went over to look and noticed the infant’s tiny leg poking up from the ground.
