Germany was shocked at twenty-year-old Adriana Maria Benedek of Brasov throwing her newborn baby out the window of her apartment in Berlin’s district of Charlottenburg on the second day of Christmas. Benedek, who had settled in Berlin for three months, prostituted herself at a nightclub, according to daily ‘Adevarul’. The online edition of daily “Bild” reports that the Romanian gave birth to a bay boy all by herself in the bathroom of her apartment only to throw him out the window and into the interior yard of the building a few minutes later. The baby’s whining alerted her neighbours, who found the baby lying in the snow. A neighbour wrapped the baby in a blanket to protect him from the cold and called an ambulance, yet the baby died before the ambulance arrived at the scene. The coroner’s report specifies cold, and not the fall, as the cause of death. Benedek was charged with manslaughter and arrested. The Brasov resident also has a two-year-old daughter entrusted with relatives in Romania.
