Kimberley police officers have confirmed the death of a child who allegedly died from cold after he had been left in an abandoned car.
It is believed that the child died on Saturday.
According to the person who had discovered the one-year-old’s body, he found it as he was heading to the neighbour’s yard to sleep in one of the cars.
“When I got there I saw a man and woman having sexual intercourse in the vehicle, a brown Opel Ascona. I saw the child’s head while the rest of his body was under his mother’s buttocks,” the man said.
As he came back to the car later, he found the dead baby left by itself.
Police spokesperson Cpt Tessa Jansen stated that the child had died of natural causes.
