The police are investigating the possibility that the body was dumped elsewhere and then washed up through a sewage pipe, since the area is inaccessible to the general public.
Just before noon, a cleaning worker at the “Eastern Sewage Treatment Plant” in Tanaka-machi, Nagasaki City, reported that a baby had washed up in the water.
The police officer who arrived at the scene confirmed that the body was that of an unidentified infant, and that the size of the body and the presence of what appeared to be an umbilical cord indicated that the body was that of an unborn infant.
According to Nagasaki City, which manages the treatment plant, the body was found caught in the wire mesh that processes sewage flowing from the sewage pipes inside the plant building.
For this reason, police are investigating the possibility that the body was dumped elsewhere and then washed up through a sewer pipe.
