Fetus found in comfort room

Saturday, July 08, 2017

A DEAD female fetus was found in the comfort room of a bus terminal in Sagay City, Negros Occidental Friday afternoon, July 7.

Chief Inspector Roberto Mansueto, city police chief, said the remains were found by a caretaker inside a toilet bowl around 12:45 p.m.

He said the caretaker saw a student enter the female comfort room before she found the fetus.

“It can be from anyone,” Mansueto said, adding that they are trying to find the mother.

He said the four-month-old baby was probably aborted inside the comfort room based on the medical examination conducted by the City Health Office.

The police coordinated with the Department of Social Welfare and Development for the burial, the police chief added. (GYM)
