Mum arrested after young boy found chained to bed and left starving


A young boy has been rescued after he was found shackled to a bed and severely malnourished.
The 11-year-old had a three metre long chain clamped to his right ankle when he was found by police in his bedroom.


After an anonymous complaint, police and social workers stormed the home and found the poorly boy in a bad state.
They immediately arrested the boy's mother who, according to local media reports, had tied the boy up because of his naughty behaviour.
She claimed she has no option but to restrain him with the metal shackle and chain.
The rescue took place in the city of Magangue in northern Colombia.
Police colonel Victor Hugo Gomez Arias, who was responsible for the rescue operation, said:
"Officers from the Teen and Children Protection Group went to the scene and found a barefoot boy tied by his ankle inside the household."The policemen took him to a local health centre so that he can have access to medical care.
 "Afterwards he was left under the protection of the municipal family authority."
The mother, whose name has not been made public, remains in police custody.
