Cape Town - Workers found the skeletal remains of a child while digging outside Lentegeur Hospital in Mitchells Plain on Wednesday morning, the Western Cape health department said.

“The bones were found in a blanket while workers did maintenance on a fence,” spokeswoman Faiza Steyn said.

She said there was a possibility the bones could belong to two children, but cautioned that this would only be revealed in an investigation.

The police were called to the scene, but could not be reached for comment immediately. - Sapa
