Malnourished 10-year-old boy rescued from Ontario home

Malnourished 10-Year-Old Boy Rescued From Ontario Home

Authorities in London, Ontario have pressed charges against a couple after finding a malnourished 10-year-old boy in their home, living in horrible conditions and covered in his own waste. CTV has more.

"The master bedroom - an alleged jail cell for a 10-year-old boy for as long as two years. ... The boy had come to Canada four years ago from an unnamed Asian country without his parents."

The boy was found after an anonymous tip to Children's Aid Society of London and Middlesex.CTV also reports the homeowners were called to the scene and when police entered the home, they found the boy living in so-called "squalid" conditions.

From London Free Press: "The bedroom had food waste, feces and urine on the floor and on the bed. ... The child was confused, of course, and upset but the child is doing quite well now."

Local outlets report the boy's guardians are his aunt and uncle. Neighbors told reporters they initially saw the boy when he first started living with the couple, but figured he wasn't living there anymore because they didn't see him.

The boy was reportedly fed fast food twice a day. The couple's 9-year-old daughter was also living with the family but CBC reports she was fed properly and there's no evidence she was confined in the house.

The couple has been charged with forcible confinement and failing to provide the necessities of life. Although the boy was malnourished, authorities say they're optimistic about his recovery. The boy said all he wants now is a good meal and a chance to go to school.

This makes me sick! These two adults need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent that the law will allow.

This couple, BOTH, deserve a 10-year sentence without parole. That is a fair punishment. The daughter should also be taken away from them. If they are able to treat the boy this way, regardless of not being his parents, they are not fit to raise a child.

The crazy thing is, is that they were fit the rise a child, since they raise their 9yr old. They choose to do that to their nephew. this is actually really disturbing

It's not that unusual in abuse and neglect cases for only one child to be neglected and other children to be treated "normally".

They should have the other child taken away as well. These two are unfit in any capacity to care for any children.

That's the law in some states as they have found that once the target of the abuse is removed, the perpetrators will move onto the remaining child.

"Their 9 yr old daughter who WAS also living with them"... They did probably remove her as well.. and rightfully so, even if not as obvious as the boys abuse/neglect.
She might not have such obvious signs of neglect/abuse, but,
She could be being raped regularly... and think that it is normal...
People who harm children in any manner, should not be permitted to breath another day.

The article is written in past tense, it is grammatically correct to use past tense here, however the daughter may still be living with the family.

Worst punishment would be putting them in a small coffin that's standing. That way they can't lay down or sit. Just a hole big enough for a feeding tube and oxygen. Their own feces will eat them alive, which seems fitting.
