A BABY girl was eaten alive by giant rats after her mum left her home alone to go on an all-night drinking binge.
1.A three-month-old baby girl has been eaten alive by giant rats after her mother left her at home alone to go partying.
The child was devoured by rodents as she lay on a bed – and neighbours have called for her mother to ‘rot in jail’.
Her 26-year-old mother, who has been arrested for child neglect, returned home to discover the horrific scene in the township area of Katlehong in Johannesburg.
2.“Besides the missing body parts, the remains of her body had bites and wounds all over that were inflicted by the sharp teeth of the rats.“This woman must rot in jail. She does not deserve to be a mother.”Angry locals gathered in the Katlehong township east of Johannesburg, South Africa, after the police took the mother away.
They said she had been drinking all night at a local bar.

The daughter of the mother’s landlady said: “The only thing this woman likes is going out partying.
“I could not bring myself to go in and see what happened to this poor child.”
The landlady, Mama Sesi Mtshali, said: “We have lots of rats in the area.”
Police spokesperson Capt Mega Ndobe said: “I can confirm the little girl died after being eaten by rats. The case will be heard in court next year.”
After the woman’s arrest, the twins’ dad went to fetch Lucky, who is being cared for by his girlfriend.
Five years ago in the same area, a grandmother had her face chewed off by giant rats as she slept.
