Police in Osaka have arrested a 34-year-old woman on suspicion of murder after she gave birth to a son in the toilet of an izakaya (Japanese-style pub) and left him in the toilet bowl where he drowned.
According to police, Natsumi Koseki gave birth at around 8:40 p.m. on Wednesday at the pub in Abeno Ward, where she worked part-time, Kyodo News reported.
Koseki’s co-workers noticed that she was in the toilet for a long time and when she came out, she collapsed. The baby’s remains were found, while Koseki was taken to hospital.
Police quoted Koseki as saying she didn’t mean for her baby to die and that she thought someone would find him.© Japan Today
