Liverpool, UK (SN) | Awakened in the middle of the night by the screams of her four-year-old son, a mother came across a completely traumatic scene: the apple of her eye had just been bitten repeatedly by a horde of rats. The toddler’s bed was covered in blood.
A scene worthy of the worst horror movies. In the heart of a district of Liverpool, England, a young mother was awakened in the middle of the night by the screams of her four-year-old son.
The mother rushed to her room to see what was happening, thinking the child must be having a nightmare. When arriving in the room, she realized the tragedy, she found her little boy in a pool of blood after having been bitten multiple times by a horde of rats on the body and face.
“I’m still traumatized by it all. I heard my son crying from his bed, and when I walked in he was covered in blood,” she testified, tears still in her eyes. “I fell to my knees in shock. I had no idea what had happened until I saw the rat pass in front of me.”
After alerting the press, saying that his child had nightmares every night since this rat attack, Dan Carden, an MP for Liverpool, took up the case. The latter announced that it was necessary to urgently deal with “the unacceptable scale of the problems of vermin”. “After being contacted about this horrific story, I visited the family, who are traumatised.
They live in a clean and nice house, but the neighborhood is infested with rats,” he also reacted.
After finding her son bleeding, the mother logically called the firefighters, who took him to the hospital.
Doctors confirmed the boy’s injuries were caused by rats.
“The patient is currently being cared for by plastic surgeons who specialize in infectious diseases,” Alder Hospital spokesman said.
Several families have reported similar cases in this district of Liverpool.
