Rats bite off baby's toes
Wednesday 22 July 2009
Three people in the United States have been accused of letting rats bite a six-week-old baby girl and chew off her toes at their cluttered mobile home.
Pike County prosecutor Rob Junk said the baby's toes on one foot were gone when sheriff's deputies went to the Ohio home on Sunday after receiving an anonymous tip-off.
The baby was said to be in a fair condition at a Columbus hospital today.
A married couple and the 18-year-old boyfriend of the baby's mother, charged with child endangering, appeared in court for an initial hearing yesterday. They were remanded in custody until a plea hearing in two weeks.
Mr Junk said they all lived in the mobile home west of Piketon, a village noted for its old uranium enrichment plant.
He said the baby's mother was a juvenile and would not identify her or say if she would be charged.
