Kimberley - A Kimberley man made a shocking discovery on Wednesday when an attempt to unblock the drain on his Chris Hani Park property saw him pulling out the foetus of a baby boy.
Edwin Ackerman said that residents living on the property had asked him to unblock the drain of their outside toilet on Wednesday afternoon.
“I removed the plastic lid and started pumping to remove the blockage. I was using a piece of wire to do this.”
Ackerman said that he thought he had found the source of the blockage and pulled out the wire.
“I was shocked when I saw the baby boy stuck on the end of the wire. The wire had gone through his head.
