  • 1.6K Views

In a clear and horrible case of negligence, a newborn baby that is just 15-days-old has been mutilated by rodents due to the carelessness of the baby’s teen parents who were just 18 and 19.

The teen parents, 18-year-old Charles Elliott and 19-year-old Erica Shryock, both of Magnolia in southwest Arkansas were soon arrested when they took their 15-day-old baby to hospital with more than 100 rat bites all over its tender body.

Soon police arrived on the scene in Magnolia after it was reported that a newborn baby of 15-days-old had been brought to the hospital with innumerable rodent bites. The injury caused by the rodents on the newborn’s body was severe and so the newborn had to be taken to another hospital.

Teen parents in southwest Arkansas have been arrested after their newborn was hospitalized with "excessive rodent bites to its body,

Officers were dispatched to a hospital in Magnolia Sunday after it was reported a newborn had been brought in with rodent bites. The infant had to be transported to another hospital due to the severity of the injuries.

18-year-old Charles Elliott and 19-year-old Erica Shryock, both of Magnolia, were identified as the child's parents, the station reports. Both were arrested for first degree endangering the welfare of a minor. Ryan Phillips, deputy prosecuting attorney for Columbia County, told the Magnolia Reporter Tuesday that new felony charges of permitting abuse of a minor with serious physical injury were expected to be filed.

As per police, 18-year-old Charles Elliott and 19-year-old Erica Shryock, both of Magnolia, were said to be the child's parents. Both of them were arrested for first degree abuse endangering the welfare of a minor. They have the worn down look of a drug addict. Although we don't know if they're drug addicts or not, but they have that "look" if you know what we're talking about.

An investigation revealed the family's home had a rodent infestation. Doctors estimated the 15-day-old child suffered 75 to 100 rat bites, one leaving a wound so severe on her forehead she required facial construction surgery, the paper reports.

When the police went to their home for investigation in the matter, they found that the young teen couple’s house was full of rats. The young parents were so careless and irresponsible in their behavior that they neither bothered to get rid of the rodent menace or change their home for the better. How could they live in such squalor when their new kid was born? It is nothing but a clear case of irresponsibility.

Doctors attending on the newborn baby estimated that the 15-day-old infant suffered almost 100 rat bites. One rodent bite was so bad that it left a severe wound on the baby’s forehead that it required facial reconstruction surgery.

A doctor reportedly told police the damage to the girl's skin was so severe "it would have taken hours to occur and [the patient] would have been in distress during the process."

One doctor claimed that the damage to the newborn baby girl’s skin was so severe that it would have occurred over a period of several hours and the innocent infant baby might have suffered a lot during that time.

The doctor said she believed the caregivers "were either absent or incapacitated to not have responded."

According to the doctors, the young teenage parents might have been either absent from the scene or might have been deprived of strength or power as they have not adequately responded to the situation to save their new born baby. I suppose incapacitated is a nice way of called them drug abusers.

“Ryan Phillips, deputy prosecuting attorney for Columbia County, told the Magnolia Reporter Tuesday that new felony charges of permitting abuse of a minor with serious physical injury were expected to be filed”.

According to Ryan Phillips, deputy prosecuting attorney for Columbia County, new felony charges (a crime regarded in the US and many other judicial systems as more serious than a misdemeanor.) of allowing abuse of a minor with serious bodily injuries are likely against the young parents.

Both Elliot and Shryock are being held in the Columbia County Sheriff's Department with no bond.

Today’s youngsters indulge in all sorts of activities. They get married but still behave like a child before attaining maturity in life and understanding the finer aspects of life.

This kind of unwanted and avoidable things happen due to today’s trend of teenager’s getting married at a tender age of 18 and 19 or in some cases giving birth to children even without marriage in the so called live-in relationships without attaining any maturity and understanding and acquiring the responsibilities in life. 

This couple does not deserve to have a child.
