Mother filmed having a rational discussion with police, before unknown officers arrive and remove Baby W from his bed.
Shocking footage of the moment Baby W was taken last night by police officers from his bed in Starship Hospital has been uploaded to social media by FreeNZ.
The footage shows mother having a quiet discussion with police officers in the hospital unit. Baby W is asleep on a bed nearby.
Then, without notice more masked police enter the room and quickly take the baby from its bed. ‘Excuse me what are you doing?’ mother asks one officer.
The move took the family completely by surprise. The heavy-handed actions appeared to be unwarranted in the context of the discussion those present were engaged in.
