A five-month-old boy has died after a botched circumcision by his parents at home, reports suggest.

The infant was rushed by helicopter to a Bologna hospital in Italy while suffering from cardiac arrest on Friday afternoon.

He is believed to have died in hospital later that night.

A manslaughter investigation has been opened against the boy's parents - said to be of Ghanaian origin - by the prosecutor's office in the northern province of Reggio Emilia and an autopsy will follow.

The tragedy follows a botched home circumcision of a two-year-old who died of severe blood loss in December in Rome.

In that case, his twin brother also nearly died but survived following intensive care treatment.

That operation had taken place in a centre provided by the non-profit organisation Arci and the council in Monterondo, a north-western suburb of Rome.

The doctor, who was believed to be an American citizen of Libyan origin, called for emergency help when the boy began excessively bleeding, Italian media reported at the time.
The boy's mother was said to be a woman of Nigerian origin, who was believed to have sought asylum in Italy and has five other children in Nigeria.

She was said to have asked for the religious operations in line with Nigeria's Islamic traditions, despite being Catholic, local media reported.

Circumcision is not practised among Italy's Roman Catholic majority.

But many immigrants in Italy are Muslim and practise circumcision for cultural and religious reasons.

What are the health risks of male circumcision?
In the UK, complications after circumcisions carried out for medical reasons are rare and most men don't experience any significant problems.

Apart from the initial swelling, bleeding and infection are the two most common problems associated with circumcision.

There is between a one in 10 and a one in 50 chance that the person will experience bleeding or infection.

Other possible complications of circumcision can include:

Permanent reduction in sensation in the head of the penis, particularly during sex
Tenderness around the scar
The need to remove stitches that have not dissolved
Occasionally, another operation is needed to remove some more skin from around the head of the penis.

Sounds like the twins suffer from Hemophilia.

Hence why circumcision should never be carried out until adulthood through religion and only through their choice.

Not the choice of the parents

This is what annoys me to hell. How parents think some religious drivel, which can and does see. Cause death to children. Allos them to force this onto their child.

It Should be banned on children, as it is with FGM.

It should be up to an adult whether they want to be circumcised, not parents. As its basically mutilation.

Hahaha! Apparently he cares just enough to make us do the job, but not quite enough to get it right himself (or herself) first time Laughing
