A workman found the body of a newborn baby today buried 50cm underneath the floor of a basement of a property located on the calle Santa Ana in Madrid.
The body, which was well preserved, was found under three layers of cement, soil, and ceramic chips.
When the workman lifted the slab covering the final layer of ceramic chips, he saw what he first thought to be a plastic doll.
According to a police spokesman, the body had been buried for a number of years, although the results of an autopsy will confirm exactly for how long.
The traumatised workman was treated for shock by SAMUR emergency service psychologists.
