A three-month-old baby girl was eaten alive by giant rats after her mother left her baby home alone to go out for a night of drinking, in Katlehong, South Africa.
The 3 month old was eaten by enormous rats as she lay on a bed alone all night in a run down shack in the town of Katlehong in Johannesburg.
The child’s mother showed up in the early hours of the morning with a new boyfriend. They had to break into the shack because the mother lost the key. She found her baby girl dead inside. The 26 year old mother was arrested by police.
A neighbor described the horror she saw, “The baby could only have died a painful death. The infant’s tongue, eyes and fingers had all been eaten. Besides the missing body parts, the remains of her body had bites and wounds all over that were inflicted by the sharp teeth of the rats. This woman must rot in jail.”
Katlehong police Captain Ndobe reported that, “I can confirm the little girl died after being eaten by rats. The mother has been arrested and is facing charges of child negligence and the case will be heard in court next year.”
The daughter of the landlord, Noluthando Mtshali, said, “The only thing this woman likes is going out partying in the local shebeens. She has been a tenant since the beginning of the year and her twins were both in hospital last week but we do not know why they had been taken to hospital.”
The only reason the little girl’s twin brother was spared this horrific death was because the mother decided to take him with her for some reason.
According to the Daily Mail, “Witnesses said it was not the first time she had left the twins on their own but it was the first time she had left only one child.”
The area that the woman lives in is heavily infested with large rats, and even knowing this, the mother would leave the children home alone frequently so she could drink and party.
