Apparently this happens more than you would think in China. A strange woman disguised herself as a nurse and tried sneak a baby from a hospital’s maternity ward was discovered by the infant’s grandmother!
The kidnapper – also known as “Su” – dressed up in a full nurse outfit before entering a hospital in south-western China’s Sichuan Province.
Dressed in her disguise, she rolled the baby out of the maternity ward in a bassinet. She then was confronted by the grandmother who was instantly suspicious and began to question the baby kidnapper.
According to Chinese news sources, the grandmother demanded that the fraud take her grandchild back to the nursery and followed the woman into the elevator. She then put herself between the woman and the baby.
In the chilling security camera footage, the disguised woman helps the grandmother push the baby back out of the elevator before rushing back in and making a getaway. The grandmother immediately alerted hospital security and the woman was taken into custody as she fled from the hospital.
She has been arrested for attempted kidnapping, but her motives for attempting to steal the baby are still under investigation.
