A Virginia mother has admitted to injecting her child with her blood to try and get attention from hospital employees.
Elizabeth Malone, a mother of three from Fairfax County, pleaded guilty to child abuse after putting her blood in her son’s nose and mouth while he was in the hospital. The mother says she did not intend to hurt her child, but merely wanted her son to receive attention from the hospital staff.
Her five-year-old son, who is disabled, was left with infections and high fevers from the injections. His health has reportedly improved since being separated from his mother.
