TODDLER SCARRED ALL OVER BODY
A one-year-old boy has been bitten 30 times by a group of more than a dozen other babies at a nursery in Croatia.
Frane Simic was covered in a series of deep bite wounds all over his body, including his face.
He was attacked after the class nanny stepped out of the room to change another baby’s nappy.
Dr Sime Vuckov, head of the hospital in Rijeka which treated the boy, said: “Biting between young children is not uncommon.
“But I have never seen anything like this.”
Police have launched an inquiry into the biting frenzy but admit they are clueless as to the babies’ reasons for attacking.
Dr Vuckov warned that while the wounds were expected to heal, the trauma suffered by Frane may leave permanent mental scars on the boy and his parents.
He said: “Our psychologist has evaluated the boy and we will continue to monitor him and provide any type of assistance so that he can overcome the trauma as soon as possible.”
Frane’s father said he is considering suing the nanny in charge of the class.
