The dead child was found in the territory of the cemetery in Thermi (Thessaloniki). The information received from those who found the newborn is shocking.
Speaking to thesstoday.gr, Leonidas Bubugiatzis, head of the grave-exhumation work at the cemeteries of the Resurrection of the Lord, said that he saw the baby naked on the grass when he still had the umbilical cord.
“When the groundskeeper called me about the baby he had found, I ran to the indicated place. A naked baby was lying right on the grass. I was shocked when I saw him… He was so small… I immediately called the rescue service “so that they can do their job, because the child had an umbilical cord…”, says the witness.
According to reports, the height of the child is about 30 cm, it is a newborn. Law enforcement agencies are studying materials from CCTV cameras installed at the cemetery. And it seems that the “unfortunate mother” has already been identified, as stated in the publication.
“There was a funeral at the cemetery yesterday afternoon, and it was crowded. Most likely, a woman in demolition came later and gave birth to a child among the graves. The unfortunate baby left to die was found by employees, rescuers and the police were called. A forensic examination will determine the cause of death of the newborn. And the mother will be found and punished according to the law,” said the deputy mayor for environmental protection of the municipality of Thessaloniki, Erotokritos Theotokatos.
