Mukachevo police are investigating the death of a child
Two strangers brought a two-year-old boy to the regional children's hospital in Mukachevo. A child at the time was no longer breathing. As doctors found out, the cause of the death was rupture of the intestine due to impact.
Doctors reported the death of the boy to the police, and the police officers visited the house where this large family lived.
On the outskirts of Mukachevo, in a bustling camp, a 26-year-old woman with 7 children lives in a small hut. As the police found out, this single mother was not very concerned about the upbringing of her children. The children are always dirty and hungry. And the careless mother is interested in nothing, except the money she receives from the state for children (which is about 10 thousand per month).
According to relatives, the young woman buys for this money commodities and sells them in markets in Mukachevo and Vynogradiv. Sometimes she leaves the children unattended for days, while she is doing her own business.
On that fateful day, the mother was not at home too. The children were looked after by neighbors. In their words, the boy was playing in the street and fell on the rocks.
Experts do not rule out the possibility that the fatal injury could have been caused by the fall. However, the investigator of Mukachevo city police opened criminal proceedings against the mother under Part 1 of Art. 166 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (willful failure to perform parental duties).
The issue of deprivation of parental rights for her other six children is being decided.
The preliminary inquiry is ongoing.
