When the South Carolina police were called to the home of a pregnant woman, they encountered a scene they were mentally unprepared for and one that, sadly, they will never forget. The 911 call left the eight-month-pregnant mother behind bars, keeping her three children alive.
Police officers were dispatched to the home of Savanah Victoria Morgan, a mother who was eight months pregnant, after her 2-year-old son was found unresponsive in his room.
A call involving an unresponsive child is harrowing enough, but officers could not imagine the disturbing scene they would witness at this home in Gray Court, South Carolina.
The miserable conditions in the ramshackle trailer were bad enough, but his wounds made it worse. His 25-year-old mother, Savanah Victoria Morgan, first told police the boy choked on some chips, but she changed her story when the injuries didn’t match her claim.
Police had to make their way through piles of garbage and feces to pull the child out and take him to the hospital. Perhaps the most unsettling element the boy faced was the wide array of dead and dying animals. About 90 animals including cats, dogs, rodents, reptiles, pythons and tarantulas were found in sacks and containers, as well as freely outdoors. Sorting through this decaying mix, two more children, aged 1 and 2, were discovered to have been removed from Morgan’s ‘care’ and picked up by the Department of Social Services.
The 2-year-old boy originally in question was covered in bruises on almost every part of his body, showing clear signs that he had been beaten. When questioned about this, Morgan dropped the chip lie, saying that she accidentally dropped the child. His markings told a more sinister tale about him taking sustained beatings, either from Morgan or her husband, who was nowhere to be found at the time.
Animal Control has been called to the derelict hell hole to clear the graveyard of dead animals and rescue emaciated dogs chained outside. Officers described the children and living conditions, combined with all the abuse, as the worst they’ve seen in their careers. “I’ve never seen anything like it in my 20 years,” said Lt. Scott Franklin in horrible disbelief at what he had just seen.
The toddler will remain in intensive care from Thursday. Although he has improved somewhat since arriving, he has a long road to recovery ahead of him. His monster of a mother has been taken into custody on three counts of child abuse and neglect, and she also faces animal cruelty charges. Her bail was set at $65,000, and unless someone is willing to put up the money for this eight-month-pregnant mother, she will be in a jail cell where she belongs pending sentencing, GreenvilleOnline reported.
