A man on a remote fishing trip in a Russian forest stumbled upon several large blue canisters filled with a shocking discovery: 248 human embryos, reports RT:
Arriving Monday morning, police found 248 embryos aged 12-16 weeks in and around the four canisters. Labels attached to tiny hands and legs listed family names of assumed mothers and some digit codes, which may refer to the pregnancy period, date of abortion or the hospital where the body originated from.
The embryos mummified when they spilled out of the formaldehyde-filled canisters. Investigators believe the so-called "biological waste" may have been stored for up to 10 years.
