According to the Cheongju Heungdeok Police Station, a dead baby was found in a toilet of a building on April 17.
The owner of the building explained, "The water wouldn't flush for the past 3-4 days so we called the plumber, broke down the toilet and found the dead body."
The baby was a newborn girl only 25-30cm tall. The baby was immediately transferred to a hospital, however, it was already dead before the emergency crew arrived at the scene.
