A young man found a baby crawling away from the beach towards a busy road. He reunited the infant with his mother, who didn't seem too bothered by the situation.


A TikTok video showing 32-year-old Michael Currid holding a lost baby in his arms went viral after he posted the footage to the social media platform.

Currid found the infant crawling up the stairs towards a busy road at the beach in Dymchurch, Kent. He picked the baby up and started asking people in the surrounding area if they knew who the child's parents were.

The 32-year-old continued to ask the people around him in an attempt to find the infant's guardians. The footage shows that after some time, the child's mother comes and takes him out of Currid's arms.

What is surprising is that the mother didn't seem to show any reaction to the fact that her baby was missing and in the arms of a stranger. Instead, she takes the child, and absent-mindedly kicks a ball nearby.




Although the child's mother didn't show any emotion in the interaction, TikTok users were shocked by the incident. The comment section of the video was flooded with users expressing their concerns. One wrote:

"So she really just didn't care? Wasn't worried. Not grateful. Wow."

The video received almost 13,000 comments since being posted three days ago. It also racked up 242,000 likes, causing the video to go viral on TikTok.



In the aftermath of the incident, Currid shared that he was filmed by his partner, Hartop, a 28-year-old graphic designer. The couple was left rattled after returning the baby to the mother as Hartop said:

"We were shocked by what happened, and wanted to share it with our friends and family. We didn't expect it to blow up as much as it has."



Another shocking occurrence happened on a Norway beach when the body of 15-month-old Artin Iran Nezhad was found on a beach in Norway.

The baby was on a refugee boat with his family when the boat capsized, which resulted in the death of the entire family. All of the bodies were found except for the little boy.

The family fled over the Iranian border on 7 August 2020 and traveled through Turkey before making their way over to Italy and then eventually landing in a camp in Calais.

Hence, the 15-month-old had a life of extreme danger filled with travel and challenges along the way. The family's boat capsized in October, and his body was only located in June 2021.
