Exercise in cruelty
A CASE against the parents of a 10-year-old girl who was allegedly forced to exercise excessively has been postponed to January 17.
The mother, 38, and her husband, 31 – the girl’s stepfather – face charges of attempted murder and child neglect.
In an incident in October last year the girl allegedly had to swim continuously in the Krugersdrift Dam, outside Bloemfontein, while her parents watched from the side.
When the girl was tired of swimming, she was allegedly assaulted and forced to swim again. The child is now in foster care. – Sapa
