Dead foetus likely died from infection (Updated)

Paphos hospital

The foetus which was found dead next to its mother in Paphos on Tuesday evening displayed symptoms of sepsis, state pathologist Nicholas Charalambous announced after a first examination of the body on Wednesday.

A full postmortem is expected to be carried out later in the day.

According to police, foul play has been ruled out as the cause of death of the five-month-old foetus.

The 23-year-old Scottish mother, who said she did not know she was pregnant, said she was suffering from abdominal pain before having a miscarriage in the tourist apartment where she was staying.

A girlfriend with whom she was on holiday at a tourist complex in Chlorakas, Paphos, alerted police and the hospital.

The young woman is being treated at Paphos hospital where she was taken by ambulance.

The on-duty doctor reported she is in good health.
