On Monday we reported on the story of a five-year-old French lad who allegedly stabbed his 10-year-old sister over a Nintendo DS.
We’ve now learned that the initial media reports were false and that it was the children’s mother who actually stabbed her daughter. Long-time GamePolitics reader Soldat Louis offers the update:
In fact, the 10-year-old girl was stabbed, but NOT by her 5-years-old brother. She was stabbed by her mother ! And, of course, it wasn’t because of a Nintendo DS.
According to what I read, the daughter was examined by a surgeon, who said that it was impossible that such a young boy could hurt someone so deeply. Then, the investigators talked to the children, and the daughter told them that she was stabbed by her mother, who finally confessed that she did it. She was apparently upset by the noise made by her children.
Soldat Louis reports that the best (French language) coverage of the incident comes from AFP.
