Likoni Ferry: Woman Arrested After Throwing Her 8-Month-Old Baby Into The Ocean

A woman threw her eight-month-old baby into the Indian Ocean at Mombasa County’s Likoni Ferry on Sunday. Police say the lady is believed to be deaf and tossed the baby into the water as MV Kwale, which was heading to the mainland from the island, docked at the wharf to load passengers. The child was rescued by divers who swiftly swam into the ocean. “[She] was rushed for first aid at the Red Cross Centre, treated and discharged in fair condition and her mother taken to the police station for interrogation,” reads a report filed at the Ferry Police Station. Videos circulated widely online showed passengers helping the divers rescue the infant from the water.
