Traumatised mum says ‘two children found dead baby in freezer’ at house

A woman has been left traumatised after two children found a dead baby in a fridge freezer.

Carol Hirst, 28, claims she was asked for help by the two kids who found the infant at a home in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Two women, aged 45 and 17, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and have been released on bail, Yorkshire Live reports.

Police officers attended the scene at approximately 12:15pm on December 16th, alongside the ambulance service, with the baby being pronounced dead at the scene.

Carol, of Rossington, claims that she was called around to help at the time the baby was discovered.

She said: "I just saw this baby and broke down. I closed the bag."

She phoned her partner Darnell Jackson, 23, to come and help, telling him, “There's a dead baby” before hanging up.

Carol explained how the drama unfolded saying: "I got a phone call from my neighbour saying I needed to go round as the children had found a baby in a bag in the freezer.

"So I ran round and saw the bag and saw this baby and broke down.

"My neighbour then came in and saw it, she instinctively called the police and couldn't speak so I had to take over.

"We both have young children so this is traumatising, the police then came and said it was a crime scene.

"I sent my neighbour to mine, [with the children], and my partner came round to make sure it was an actual baby as I couldn't believe it."

Carol added that it had tarnished the pleasure of her own baby, saying: "Coming home to my own six-week-old, Ivy Jackson, it feels as if my own enjoyment of my newborn has been stolen, as every time I look at her all I can see is the child. It makes me feel physically sick."
