Mother gives daughter tapeworms in order to slim her down

A pageant mom in Florida is accused of having forcing her daughter to ingest tapeworms in order to slim down for competition.

Upon checking into the emergency room with severe stomach pains, the nurse thought the teen was pregnant. But an ultrasound showed no fetus, although there was an inexplicable growth in her intestines.

The unfortunate teenage condition became clear upon a fateful trip to the bathroom.
The toilet bowl became full of tapeworms!

“It was so gross and she had pooped all these tapeworms. There were a couple that were very long and wiggling around trying to get out of the toilet bowl,” says the nurse afterwords.

Having passed the parasites, the teen was then assumed to be fine. But one question remained: how did she get the tapeworms in the first place?

After an apparent fight between the mother and daughter, it became clear the mother bought a pill of tapeworm eggs in Mexico and forced her daughter to take it to lose weight for an upcoming pagent.
