Police hunt two ‘witches’ who dropped woman in boiling water

An 18-year-old woman suffered serious injuries after allegedly being dropped into a witch’s cauldron of boiling water during a carnival in southwest Germany.


The teenager was badly scalded on her feet and calves after the incident in Eppingen, Baden Württemberg, over the weekend.


Police are looking for two people
dressed in witches costumes who
reportedly fled the scene.


The cauldron had been placed on a carnival cart which was being pulled along by several people dressed up in witch costumes.


Local media reports that the girl’s
friends had ‘handed her over’ to two of the people dressed up as a joke, who carried her to the cart.


One of the ‘witches’ is said to have held her over the cauldron while another lifted the lid.


This was reportedly done to mimic he scene told in fairy-tales and legends where witches would boil their victims alive.


It is not known how the teenager
ended up with her feet in the cauldron,TheLocal.de reports.


Police said in a statement that the
people involved in the carnival who dragged the cart with the cauldron simply continued the procession without caring for the victim.


She has been hospitalised and is
expected to need to remain in specialist care for more than a week.


The organisation behind the carnival,Hexenzunft Eppingen – meaning ‘Witchcraft Eppingen’ – have been organizing the annual event with hundreds of participants since 2003, according to The Local.
