Monkeys storm home killed an eight-day-old baby…
This sad incident happened in Mela Alangam (West Rampart) near Thanjavur Palace in India, where a group of monkeys stormed the home of a twins mother whose eight-day-old baby was snatched and threw in a moat.
The twin’s mother was shocked to find out that her newborn twin girls were gone from their beds after a pack of primates invaded her home on Saturday.
It was spotted that groups of monkeys carried the babies across the rooftops and managed to rescue one of the baby girls after she was left on a roof.
Tragically, the other baby girl was later recovered from a nearby moat and pronounced dead at the scene.
According to India Today reports:
“Buvaneswari, the mother of newborn twin girls, alleged that monkeys entered her home and picked up the sleeping babies on Saturday.
“Buvaneswari further said she was shocked to see the monkeys on the roof and began yelling. It was only later that she realized that her children were missing.
“As she began to cry, neighbors came to help and reportedly retrieved one baby from the roof but couldn’t find the other one.
“Moments later, the other baby was found in a nearby water body. Medical team which reached the spot pronounced the child dead.”
Inspector S Chandramohan of Thanjavur West police told the Times of India:
“Once we got the information about the incident, we rushed to the spot and searched for the second baby.
“We finally located the infant on the moat. We have sent the body to the Government Medical College Hospital for postmortem.”
