A dramatic incident occurred at a hospital in the Hamburg district of Heimfeld on Monday. While a mother was with her child for a pediatric examination, an 18-year-old Bulgarian woman entered the doctor’s office and took the baby, fleeing the clinic. According to Bild, the woman was told by a doctor that she had dropped something at the information desk and would take care of the baby.
However, it was only a few moments later that the woman discovered there was no baby. It remains unclear whether the child’s mother and the young woman know each other. Two groups of large families gathered outside the hospital, allegedly consisting of around 40 people. The situation had to be calmed down by police because people were accusing each other of kidnapping.
Less than two hours later, the woman returned with the baby and handed it over to hospital staff. She was taken into custody and is being investigated on suspicion of kidnapping. It is reported that she recently suffered a miscarriage.
