美国一健康男孩,被母亲无端送医320多次,接受13次手术

新闻来源: 这里是美国 于 2019-10-14 9:23:56  


都说父母是孩子的守护神,可美国的这位妈妈,却把自己的亲生儿子往死里整……

在他生命的头8年中,美国德克萨斯州达拉斯这个名叫克里斯多夫·鲍恩(Christopher Bowen)的男孩前前后后进出医院多达323次,接受13场重大手术,反反复复暴露在医疗检查的辐射中,多次因不必要的治疗而感染败血症和产生血块,被插喂食管还被迫坐轮椅……而这一切都源于他母亲对他身患重病的臆想。

从2009年到2016年的8年间,这个名叫凯琳·鲍恩·赖特(Kaylene Bowen-Wright)的35岁母亲,对医生谎称她的儿子患有多种疾病,包括癌症、肌肉营养不良(muscular dystrophy),心脏问题和癫痫症(seizures)。

今年8月,凯琳向法庭认罪,承认她编造了儿子身患疾病的谎言,并对孩子造成了伤害。当地时间周五,凯琳被法庭宣判6年监禁。

Authorities say the mom made up stories to some people about Christopher dying from a rare genetic disorder, while she told others he had cancer.

法庭表示,这位母亲向一些人编造了克里斯多夫因一种罕见的遗传疾病而濒临死亡的谎言,还对其他人说他得了癌症。

She also was accused of holding fundraisers for Christopher and having a feeding tube inserted into his body that caused him to suffer life-threatening blood infections.

她还被指控为克里斯多夫举行募捐活动,并将一根喂食管插入他的身体,导致他患上威胁生命的血液感染。

Authorities said she even tried to get him alung transplant and had the boy admitted to hospice.

法庭说,她甚至试图为他做肺移植,并让男孩接受了临终关怀。

Crawford, who was denied visits with his son when he was 3 by a judge who believed the mother's lies, told the Star-Telegram that he wants to call more attention to cases of medical child abuse.

(克里斯多夫的父亲)克劳福德在孩子3岁时被一个听信了凯琳谎言的法官拒绝了对儿子的探视权,他告诉《星电报》,他想让更多的人关注医疗虐待儿童的案件。

2017年,达拉斯一家医院告诉儿童保护服务中心,克里斯多夫并没有像他母亲所声称的那样得了癌症或其他她所坚称的疾病,之后克里斯多夫就被从凯琳的家中带走了。

如今,克里斯多夫在他父亲的监护下茁壮成长。

Christopher, now age 10, has since recovered from his mother's abuse, is doing well at school and has become 'very athletic,'' said his father Ryan Crawford.

克里斯多夫现在10岁了,他已经从母亲的虐待中恢复过来,在学校表现很好,变得“非常擅长运动,”他的父亲瑞安·克劳福德说。

The boy is said to be happy and healthy while pursuing his love of soccer and choir, according to KXAS-TV.

据KXAS-TV报道,这个男孩非常快乐和健康,有着足球与合唱等兴趣爱好。

对于凯琳认罪并被宣判6年监禁,克里斯多夫的父亲表示,他很高兴她最终做了正确的事(向法庭承认谎言)。

Christopher’s father, who now has custody of the child, responded on Friday to Bowen’s plea in the case.

克里斯多夫的父亲现在拥有了对孩子的监护权,周五,他对凯琳的认罪做出了回应。

“I am happy that she decided to do the right thing. Eventually, the lies had to stop,” the boy’s father, Ryan Crawford, told the Star-Telegram. “Now, hopefully, those who thought a mother could never do this to their child will see evil does exist.”

“我很高兴她做出了正确的决定。最终,谎言不得不停止,”男孩的父亲瑞安·克劳福德告诉《星电报》。“现在,希望那些认为母亲永远不会这样对待孩子的人能看到,邪恶的确存在。”

凯琳原本最高可面临20年监禁,但她显示出患有代理型孟乔森综合症(Munchhausen syndrome by proxy)的迹象,即虚构者(几乎都是儿童母亲)利用与受害者的特殊关系编造病史,导致受害者反复住院,引发医生关注,进而满足虚构者心理需求的一种心理疾病。

She had been facing a maximum sentence of 20 years, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

据《沃斯堡星电报》报道,她本可面临的最高刑期为20年。

State prosecutors urged the judge to impose a maximum sentence.

州检察官敦促法官判处最高刑罚。

Authorities said Bowen appeared to show traits of ofMunchhausen syndrome by proxy, a psychological condition where a caregiver lies about, exaggerates or makes up medical conditions in a child as a way of getting attention.

法庭表示,凯琳似乎表现出了代理型孟乔森综合症的症状,这是一种心理疾病,看护人撒谎、夸大或编造孩子的健康状况,以此来吸引注意力。
