Sad photos of a crying 17- month-old boy who was found drinking milk from his mother’s dead body in India Police in Damoh district, Madhya Pradesh, India,

were called to reports of a dead body near train
tracks. According to a witness present there, a
woman was seen lying on the ground near the
railway track and a child next to her was crying
and drinking milk from her breast. The 7-month
old was unaware that his mother was dead.
Officer Nand Ram, the head constable of the
Government Railway Police, said:

‘The toddler was crying for his mother and on
receiving no response from her; he held her and
started drinking milk from her. We were
shocked to see it, it was very sad. The woman
was lying dead while the child was sitting next
to her. This was something we have never seen
before. It was quite emotional for us all.”

The body was taken away for a post-mortem
and an investigation is underway to determine
the cause of her death. It is however believed
to be an accident as she was bleeding from her
nose and ears. The boy was taken to a nearby
hospital for a check-up and a physical
examination conducted on him revealed that he
was suffering from a cold.

The local Child Welfare Committee was also
informed and arrangements were made to take
the boy to an orphanage until his family were
tracked down.
