Toddler left scarred for life after being bitten 15 times by other children on a day out at a soft play centre.
Willow-Ivy Doherty, 17 months, was playing with her brother Tucker, six and sister Aurora, three, at the Little Beas soft play centre in Seacroft, Leeds on November 2 when disaster struck.
Suddenly her mother Becky heard another parent scream ‘Oh my God, whose baby is this?’
The mother was forced to pull a little boy off Willow’s neck when it emerged she had 15 bite marks all over her body, shares Daily Mail.
Mother-of-six, Becky, claims her daughter was blue and the youngster who did it ‘had a big smile on his face and blood all around his mouth’, reports The Mirror.
Becky said she believed the boy was two and was with a four year old who was apparently his brother.
Becky told the newspaper: ‘She looks like she’s been savaged by a dog, not a child.’
She eventually found the mother of the child, who she claimed insisted ‘That’s what kids do, that’s what kids do!’
Little Willow-Ivy was taken to hospital where she was given an urgent injection for Hepatitis B and treatment for her cuts.
She will also require a skin graft on her face.
Doctors believe Willow Ivy’s 15 bites came from two different children and have left angry red marks all over her body.
The youngster still needs more injections to ensure she has not contracted anything from the bites, which cover her face, back and limbs.
In total she has four on her face, two on her fingers, three on her back, one on her ear, shoulder, wrist, leg and others on her head.
A spokesman for Little Bees told the Mirror: ‘We are not a nursery. The children need parental supervision.’
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman told MailOnline: ‘Police received a report of an 17-month-old child having been bitten by a three-year-old child at an indoor soft play area in Seacroft on Friday (2/11).
‘The child was treated at hospital and an assault occasioning actual bodily harm was recorded.
‘A social services referral was made in relation to the suspect child and the crime has been finalised due to them being under the age of criminal responsibility.’
How does this happen? Where was the supervision?
