A woman in Indonesia staged a dramatic. The 20-year-old woman in West Jakarta pretends to the discovery of a newborn baby, even though it was her own baby.
As information, on Sunday morning, the woman, who is identified by her initial D, gave birth to her child on her own at her home in Palmerah. She reportedly blared loud music to mask her screams during childbirth.
After delivering the baby, D, who lives with her mother, dressed up as if she was going to work.
Then D placed the baby on the porch of the house and called her mother. Feigning panic, D told her mother that someone had left a baby on their porch. D’s mother then alerted the neighbors, with the police and an ambulance later arriving to take the newborn to the hospital.
Palmerah Police Chief Commissioner Supriyanto said that D left the scene soon after despite police requiring her to remain as a witness.
Then she was found exhausted in nearby Kebon Jeruk soon after and was taken to a community clinic in Palmerah for treatment.
D then confessed that she faked finding the child because she was ashamed she had it out of wedlock and that she has no money to raise it on her own, especially after her boyfriend — the baby’s father — told her that he didn’t want to take responsibility for the child.
Police said the boyfriend eventually had a change of heart and has agreed to support D and the baby.
It’s not yet known how D managed to hide her pregnancy from her mother and others close to her for nine months.
