Mom Dies Breastfeeding Shipwreck – Two kids were supposedly found sticking to their dead mother — who had saved their lives by drinking her pee so she could breastfeed them after their boat fell to pieces and they floated adrift for quite a long time.
Mariely Chacón, 40, of Venezuelan, was on board the Thor on Sept. 3 alongside her 6-year-old child, 2-year-old little girl, spouse, and caretaker for a joy journey from Higuerote to Tortuga Island in the Caribbean when catastrophe struck.
During the excursion to the uninhabited island, a wave struck the boat.
The frantic mother concluded that the best way to save her children was by devouring her pee, which permitted her to breastfeed them during the frightening experience, as indicated by the report.
Rescuers, at last, found the survivors, who incorporated the kids – recognized as Jose David and Maria Beatriz Camblor Chacon — and their babysitter, Verónica Martinez, 25, who was found digging in an unfilled cooler to get away from the singing temps.
The children, who were found sticking to their mother’s body, and Martinez were treated for parchedness and severely charred areas.
Five others who had been onboard the stricken vessel — including the dad, Remis David Camblor — have not been found.
Chacón endured organ disappointment because of electrolyte consumption brought about by drying out, which was conceivably sped up by her breastfeeding, a legal medication source revealed to La República, as indicated by the mag.
Venezuela’s National Maritime Authority INEA said the raft was spotted at 6:20 p.m. Sept. 6 floating off the island of La Orchila.
The mother’s memorial service — which was held in Caracas on Sept. 11 — was communicated on YouTube.
