On Monday, a dramatic incident occurred at a hospital in the Hamburg district of Heimfeld. While the mother was with her child for a pediatric examination, a Bulgarian woman (18) entered the doctor’s office and stole the baby, running away from the clinic. According to Bild, the woman who posed as a doctor told the mother that she had dropped something at the information desk and would take care of the baby.
However, just a few moments later, the woman discovered that there was no baby. It is still unclear whether the child’s mother and the 18-year-old are acquainted with each other. Two groups of large families gathered outside the hospital, with an estimated 40 people present. The situation escalated quickly and had to be defused by police officers due to accusations of kidnapping.
Less than two hours after the incident occurred, the woman returned with the baby and handed it over to hospital staff. She was then taken into custody and is being investigated on suspicion of kidnapping. According to Bild, there have been reports that she recently suffered a miscarriage.
