This shocking footage of a little baby girl being drowned in a bucket has resulted in its teenage mother being arrested for attempted murder after she sent the footage to the baby’s dad.
The mother, identified in reports as Victoria Ramos Gamarra, 19, reportedly sent the shocking videos to her ex-boyfriend, George Washington Yucra Gutierrez, in the district of San Sebastian in the central Peruvian department of Cuzco in attempt to try and force him to restart their relationship.
Yes equally shockingly the dad apparently ignored the videos which were getting progressively worse over the past three months before finally complaining to police, resulting in him being investigated as well.
