A 34-year-old German woman had taken the baby from a hospital room while the mother was sleeping, Hamburg police said.

The brother followed the unnamed woman and talked to her, and she handed the day-old child back.

She was arrested and taken to a psychiatric clinic.

Police spokesman Ulf Wundrack said the boy's actions contributed "significantly" to the baby's return.
