Woman sells her baby - level 2

Woman sells her baby - level 2

22-11-2013 14:00

Police in Turkey arrested a woman at an airport in Istanbul. She allegedly tried to sell her baby.

The 22 year old woman was filmed by security cameras with a big bag. Her baby was inside it. She went into the toilet with the bag and left without it. Another woman was later filmed when she was left the toilets. She was carrying the same bag.

This woman was the one who bought the baby. However, she didn’t keep the baby because she realised that she could not leave Turkey without the necessary documents. She contacted police and reported the abandoned baby in the toilet. Unlike the mother, she was not arrested.

Difficult words: allegedly (we don’t know it for sure), abandoned (left).
