A dramatic turn of events occurred on Monday at a hospital in the Hamburg district of Heimfeld. While a mother was with her child for a routine pediatric examination, an 18-year-old Bulgarian woman entered the doctor’s office and snatched the baby from the mother’s arms, running away from the clinic.
According to Bild, the woman was told by a girl posing as a doctor that she had dropped something at the information desk and would take care of the baby. However, moments later, she realized that there was no baby to be found. It remains unclear whether the child’s mother and the 18-year-old are acquainted, and two groups of large families gathered outside the hospital, numbering around 40 people. The situation quickly escalated into a heated argument as people accused each other of kidnapping.
Just two hours after the incident occurred, the woman returned to the hospital with the baby in her arms and handed it over to staff members. She was taken into custody and is currently under investigation for kidnapping. It has been reported that she recently suffered a miscarriage.
