The world is full of bizarre events and people can come up with the most unique problems like a Colombian woman did recently. The grandmother went back to the hospital to exchange her grandson because she thought he was too ugly.

According to a report in Mirror, the grandmother was disappointed after she thought the child was swapped in the hospital on the day the child was born. However, the hospital authorities said that only one boy was born on the day the grandmother said the child was swapped. The hospital authorities then did a check-up on the boy to confirm and that is when the lady was convinced.

 

Carlos Pallares, health secretary on Santa Marta' city council said, “The situation should be accepted. Sometimes biology, genetics play a role in these mistakes and we should accept them.”

The grandmother is now being treated by a psychologist and the baby is said to be healthy and back with his parents.
