The mother reported that the comatose child and has been a victim of beating in the past from her partner, writes CNN Greece. She told police that she was from Lamia and lived there with her four minor children until she met the man and they were, in her words, “stolen.” Now they live in the Vlichos camp, in the house of a 23-year-old guy.
