On May 25, we reported on a gruesome story that emerged from Mexico in which a mother removed her 5-year-old son's eyeballs during what was reported to be a Satanic ritual. At that time, it was reported that she had allegedly used a spoon to mutilate her son.
The child, identified as Fernando, was released on Wednesday from a Mexico City hospital after nearly two weeks of care.
Doctors say he has no hope of recovering his vision. A hospital spokesman told reporters that, "Because this happened early in the child's life, he knows that he can't see, but he is still not conscious of the fact that his vision loss is permanent. This will require a constant therapeutic process which will be attended to by the corresponding medical authorities in Mexico state."
Reuters reports that Fernando's mother (pictured above) is believed to have removed his eyes with her bare hands during a Satanic ritual. Eight people were arrested in connection with the attack, including the boy's mother and grandparents.
