A Western Cape hospital plans to tag babies electronically in its bid to fight baby-snatching.
If the security measure is implemented, Tygerberg Hospital would become the first public health facility to use the tag, The Star newspaper reported on Tuesday..
The device looks like a plaster. It would get automatically activated if the baby is removed from a certain area.
The infrastructure for the plan was expected to be completed next year.
Tygerberg spokesman Regan Beukes said the system had been used for years.
There were several baby-snatching incidents from maternity wards in the country's hospitals in recent years.

Dit is skrikwekkend dat die probleem groot genoeg is dat hierdie stappe enigsins nodig is ! Dit klink amper soos die tags by die klerewinkels wat alarm maak as dit by die deur uitgevat word ?

Het ook op die eindtyd draad hierop gereageer voordat ek die draad gesien het.
