In a dramatic turn of events, a young Bulgarian woman approached a mother and her child in the doctor’s office of a hospital in the Hamburg district of Heimfeld. The woman, who claimed to be a doctor, told the mother that she had dropped something at the information desk and would take care of the baby. However, moments later it was discovered that there was no baby to be found.
The situation quickly escalated as two groups of large families gathered outside the hospital, allegedly totaling around 40 people. The police were called in to calm down the crowd as people accused each other of kidnapping.
Just two hours later, the woman returned with the baby and handed it over to the hospital staff. She was taken into custody and is currently being investigated on suspicion of kidnapping. It is not yet known whether the child’s mother and the 18-year-old know each other.
