A dramatic scene unfolded at a hospital in the Hamburg district of Heimfeld on Monday when a Bulgarian woman (18) snatched a baby from its mother during a pediatric examination. The woman, posing 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 realized there was no baby and discovered that the child’s mother and she did not know each other. Two groups of large families gathered outside the hospital, with around 40 people present, and the situation quickly escalated into chaos as people accused each other of kidnapping.
The police were forced to intervene and calm down the crowd before an investigation into kidnapping was launched against the woman. It is believed that she may have recently suffered a miscarriage, which could have led to her actions. Despite being taken into custody, it remains unclear whether or not the child’s mother and the 18-year-old are acquainted with each other.
