A police patrol had a terrible shock when they stopped a motorcyclist acting suspiciously – they checked his backpack and found a dead baby inside.
The drama unfolded in a busy soi in downtown Lat Krabang, eastern Bangkok on Friday.
Thanongsak Loyha of the local police said they called over the 35 year old man after having suspicions he was up to no good. They asked to look inside his large black bag and had the grisly shock.
Inside was a suspected one day old male infant. Both the man, who the police called “Boy”, and the dead child were taken to the Lat Krabang police station.
The man admitted that the child was his. “My wife was seven months pregnant, ” he said. “We had not registered at a hospital because we are so poor.
“In the evening my wife gave birth but the boy was stillborn. I didn’t know what to do. So I decided to find a place to bury him. I started driving around but I didn’t know where to bury him.”
That was when officers saw him and looked in the backpack.
The remains of the baby have been sent for autopsy to determine whether he died in the womb or after birth. If the latter, police said charges would be laid.
