The Cruelty of Kansa

In captivity Devaki bore six sons, each of whom were promply killed by Kansa. At the seventh time, theGods again thought it necessary to intervene. At the night the seventh child was born, the prison guards fell into a deep slumber and the doors were unlocked. Taking advantage of this opportunity, Vasudev slipped out of the prison and whisked away the God-child to the safety a neighbouring kingdom which was ruled by king Nanda. King Nanda's domain lay across the Yamuna river. We are told that at that time the Yamuna was in spate, but when the waters touched the feet of the God-Child Sri-Krishna, the waters parted making a channel for Vasudev to pass.

(The similarity with the biblical story of Joseph carrying the child Christ across the Sinai to Egypt is very close).
