Newborn baby is killed by a MONKEY after being snatched from his mother's arms while breastfeeding indoors in India
A newborn baby was killed by a monkey after it snatched the infant from his mother's arms in India.
The woman, called Neha, had been breastfeeding her 12-day-old son Arush when the animal came into her home on the outskirts of Agra on Monday, the Times of India reports.
The victim's father Yogesh, an auto-rickshaw driver, told the newspaper that they chased the monkey.
The animal eventually left the baby on a neighbour's roof – but by then, it was too late.
'The main door of the house was open, and my wife was breastfeeding out son, suddenly a monkey barged inside our house and grabbed the child by his neck,' Yogesh told the Times of India.
'Before Neha could understand anything, the monkey took away our son.
'After a chase, the monkey left our son on a neighbour's roof but it was too late, Arush was heavily bleeding and had no pulse.'
They took the baby to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead, the father added.
