A 25-year-old Bolivian woman left many people in shock after hanging her three children

A 25-year-old Bolivian woman left many people in shock after hanging her three children. She recorded them as they said goodbye to their father on video, the police reported on Thursday.

According to AFP, the woman hanged her one-year-old baby and her two other children, aged four and seven, on Tuesday night after a series of arguments with her husband, prosecutor Oscar Vera told Los Tiempos newspaper. .

Police said the mother was being treated at the hospital after taking poison.

The regional police chief, Colonel Johnny Corrales, said that the woman became clueless about her husband's drinking, "so she decided to hang her children and then tried to commit suicide" .
"We know there is a video where children say goodbye to their father," said Vera, a prosecutor in the central city of Cochabamba, where the tragedy unfolded.

A police forensic report said the children had died of "mechanical strangulation".

The mother, who left a letter alleging abuse by her husband, was treated in intensive care and unable to report to the police. The police claimed to have placed the father in preventive detention.

Bolivia's prosecutor's office recently reported 37 cases of infanticide in the first six months of the year.
