A woman posing as a nurse managed to steal a newborn baby yesterday from a hospital in the town of Ingeniero Budge, Argentina. According to the newspaper El Litoral, the boy was found hours later.
Disguised as a nurse upon the family’s complaint, the woman managed to enter the room where the mother was with the baby and asked her to take the little one and do an examination. The child was born on Monday (12) without any problems.
Realizing that the alleged nurse did not return, mother Nicole Sandoval began to ask about her daughter. Minutes later, the hospital confirmed that the girl had been stolen.
The boy’s father claims that the “nurse” has already thought of everything. “My daughter was taken to the washroom and taken away,” David told Clarin.
A witness told local media that police found the girl at the bus stop in Buenos Aires’ Esteban Echeverría district. “A woman came to change a ticket for tomorrow. She wanted to go early, leave on time,” the terminal worker said.
“A change could have been made, but she had to take out insurance for the child and she didn’t have the relevant documents. She said the baby didn’t have any documents, she was traveling without these documents. This is a very important thing. seldom, because the company wants them to have the documents to be able to travel,” commented Stella.
