Reports are that an investigation was launched into the matter after a doctor at New Amsterdam Hospital made a report that the child’s hymen was ruptured as a result of some sort of penetration.
According to the baby’s 18-year-old mother, who hails from the Corentyne coast in Berbice, the incident took place on Sunday.
The mother, whose identity has been withheld, said that on Sunday afternoon her daughter was at a neighbour’s home when she heard the infant crying.
Upon investigating, she discovered that the neighbour had just showered the child and when she enquired why that was done she was told that the child fell and as such was given a bath.
INews understands that the mother took her daughter home but later noticed that she was bleeding from her vagina.
“When me carry she to the hospital and the hospital take out she pampers, the doctor say this is not a fall because this aint got no black and blue, this is somebody finger went in she vagina,” the mother lamented.
