A couple have discovered that their 13 year old daughter was switched at birth.
This was made known by Twitter user, @amasonic, who narrated how the couple discovered they have been with the wrong child for 13 years.
According to the Twitter user, the parents nevr knew they were with the wrong child, until the kid recently needed blood transfusion after being raped by armed robbers. @amasonic wrote;
“I know someone who was given to the wrong parents & it wasn’t found out until she was 13. How? Armed robbers raped her, a blood transfusion was needed, none of her ‘parents’ had her blood type.
Her life hasn’t remained the same ever since.”
@amasonic was responding to a Twitter user @hammdriller who narrated how a man was called from the hospital, 10 days after his wife put to bed, that he went home with the wrong baby.
“This guy just got a call from the hospital, 10 days after his child was born, that he went home with the wrong baby.
Hospital informed him to bring back the baby and swap. No big deal, it’s just 10 days.
I am dead here”
Babies switched at birth are babies who, because of either error or malice, are interchanged with each other at birth or very soon thereafter, leading to the babies being unknowingly raised by parents who are not their biological parents.
The occurrence is relatively rare in real life, since many cases of babies switched at birth are likely undocumented or unknown.
