A disabled French girl is in hospital after a swarm of rats attacked her in her bedroom in northern France.
The 14-year-old paraplegic was sleeping on the ground floor when she was attacked.
According to the BBC, a medical expert quoted by France said the girl had 45 facial lesions, 150 on her hands and 30 on her feet. She was left mutilated and badly scarred.
The girl’s father is suing the landlord for his negligence. Others state that trash cans nearby were overflowing.
The father, who also has two other children, said he discovered his paraplegic daughter Samantha “drenched in blood” in her bed last Week.
He also added that, “There was blood coming from her ears – I was terrified that she might have had a brain haemorrhage.”
The girls fingertips were bitten off beyond repair, she is currently recovering in hospital.
The family have since been moved to a different house while an investigation is underway.
