In Germany, five children were found today after their mother allegedly killed them before attempting to take her own life.
Police find bodies of five children in German town: 20 miles from Cologne in western Germany, the bodies were found at an apartment building in Solingen.
The mother,27, jumped in front of a train, however she did survive after she allegedly killed her children, according to Blid.
The five dead children were one, two, three, six and eight years old, while an 11-year-old was uninjured.
The 11-year-old survivor is believed to be looking after by relatives. The children’s grandmother called emergency services on Thursday afternoon.
Stefan Weiand, a police spokesman at the house, said it was a ‘tragic situation’ and added that the mother was not yet in a fit state to be questioned, due to her serious injuries.
He told broadcaster WDR ‘Police find bodies of five children in German town. We are assuming a crime was committed. How and why that happened, we cannot say.’
