On Monday, a dramatic event unfolded at a hospital in the Hamburg district of Heimfeld. While the mother was with her child for a pediatric examination, a Bulgarian woman (18) approached her in the doctor’s office and took the baby and ran away from the clinic. According to Bild, the girl who played the doctor told the woman that she had dropped something at the information desk and that she would take care of the baby.
However, moments later, the woman discovered that she did not have a baby. It is not yet known whether the child’s mother and the 18-year-old know each other. Two groups of multi-member families, allegedly around 40 people, gathered in front of the hospital. The whole situation had to be calmed down by the police because people were accusing each other of kidnapping.
Just two hours after this incident happened, the woman returned with the baby and handed it over to hospital staff. She was taken into custody and is under investigation on suspicion of kidnapping. According to Bild, this woman recently had a miscarriage.
