Paramedics Discover 2-Year-Old With Blood All Over Her Legs - Man Claims Nothing Is Wrong

Police in Ireland were called to the home of a woman with two young children. A man there was arrested and is suspected of mutilating the genitals of one of the children.

The 2-year-old baby girl is in the hospital after her genitals were mutilated. Police arrested an unnamed Somalian national who is believed to have carried out the mutilation. If convicted, he faces up to 14 years in prison and/or $11,000 in fines.

Police are carefully investigating, saying this is the first arrest of its kind in Ireland. They do suspect that Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is on the rise in Ireland due to the rise of immigrants from African nations.

At least 30 African nations still practice FGM. According to the belief in these countries, it preserves a girl's virginity and ensures she won't be unfaithful to her husband.

Children who are subject to FGM can suffer from blood loss, infection, health problems and problems giving birth in later years.
