AMSTERDAM — Police patrolling a red light area in The Hague on Tuesday night were surprised to find a man lying unconscious on the street with a drip needle in his bandaged arm.
The 47-year-old man from Delft told them he had undergone an operation on his arm at a hospital in nearby Delft earlier in the day.
Afterwards he was in such dire need that he left the hospital — the drip still in his arm — in search of "love" on the Geleenstraat in The Hague. Several prostitutes work behind windows on the Geleenstraat, one of the four red light streets in the city.
A call to the hospital confirmed the man had indeed left on his own initiative. But the police report did not reveal whether he had sated his carnal desires before passing out.
He was taken to a hospital in The Hague where the needle was removed and his arm was re-bandaged.
Earlier on Tuesday, police officers in The Hague were called upon to free a 12-month-old girl who was bizarrely trapped in a fold-up bed.
Her parents called the police after they were unable to discover how to release her. The child was not injured by her unusual adventure, the authorities said.
