Mom feeds teen daughter tapeworms to lose weight for pageant; girl rushed to hospital screaming in agony

tapeworm1A young girl was rushed to a Florida emergency room after suffering debilitating stomach pain discovered to be caused by tapeworms her weight-obsessed mother fed her in preparations for a beauty pageant.

The emergency room nurse Maricar Cabral-Osori  recounted the horrifying event on a recent episode of Untold Stories of the ER, where she said the pageant participant writhed in pain in the hospital’s restroom before filling the toilet with tapeworms.

Following the disgusting discovery, the girl’s mother ‘who turned white’ admitted that she fed her daughter tapeworm eggs she had purchased in Mexico in order to make her daughter “a little skinnier,” the nurse said.

Those eggs had consequently hatched inside the girl producing a handful of worms of various sizes wiggling to climb out of the commode.

The pageant mom changed her original tune from one of constant complaint to hospital staff, to compassion toward her daughter after the gruesome reveal. “The mom was apologizing to the girl. She’s like, ‘I’m so sorry. Cabral-Osori said in the interview.

 Although tapeworms have been used for weight loss for nearly 100 years, Dr Patricia Quinlisk, Medical Director of the Lowa Department of Health warns, “ingesting tapeworms is extremely risky and can cause a wide range of unstable side effects, including rare deaths.”

If this mother is living vicariously through her young daughter, maybe she should have considered testing the tapeworm out on herself first.
