Sounds unbelievable but it’s true… A German couple forgot their newborn baby in a taxi as they returned home after the woman had given birth.

The crazy incident took place in Hamburg, North Germany, when the couple left the vehicle each thinking that the other partner had the child. Just a few seconds later, they both realised that they had left their son on the back seat!

Useless were their attempts to alert the driver. He drove away and went to the airport, stopping to have lunch and leaving the unaccompanied child sleeping. Luckily, on his return to the car, he saw the baby and alerted the airport’s medical team to make sure that the child was in good health. The police were called and they took the baby home to the parents.
