Vargas, 34, confessed to the police that while irate with the boy she grasped him by the scrotum and pulled him to her as hard as she couMum tries to superglue her son’s genitals back on after pulling them off
"The father found his son crying in his bedroom"
Vargas confessed to the police that while irate with the boy she grasped him by the scrotum and pulled him to her as hard as she could, “thereby ripping his 'sack' and causing a laceration.”
The father, who is serving in the army, went home to find his son crying in his bedroom. The mother had tried to wash the wound with alcohol, applied the superglue, stuffed his pants with tissue that became bloodied and sent him to bed.
He took his son to a medical centre, where doctors found a four-centimetre laceration to his scrotum and bruising to his penis. The staff had to administer medication to the child and perform surgery on his injuries.
Child Protection Service said that they have never had to deal with the family before this incident.
The child is recovering in surgery and is being looked after by his father.
