A mother reportedly left her dying daughter to go to a pub and even told paramedics that the lifeless teen was only ‘faking it.
13-year-old Robyn Goldie begged her callous mother, Sharon Goldie, for help days before she passed away, saying she was in pain ‘all over.’
However, the 45-year-old mother did not believe it and accused Robyn of ‘attention seeking.’ She even told her to ‘get in’ the house when the teen ran outside to ask neighbors for help.
It was discovered that Robyn was suffering from a burst stomach ulcer and medics said the young girl would’ve survived had it been found out.
But on the day the teen died, Goldie went to a pub instead of helping her daughter.
When she returned home and found her slumped on the sofa, she just went straight to the fridge to get a drink and went out with a friend.
Goldie’s friend then noticed Robyn and was shocked to find her unconscious.
The friend immediately called emergency services but Goldie told medics: “She’s at it.”
But when the mother was informed that her daughter had died, a suddenly crying Goldie said: “No, she cannot be.”
Goldie appeared at the High Court to plead guilty to a charge under the Children and Young Persons Act of willfully neglecting and maltreating Robyn.
Prosecutors accepted her not guilty plea to the culpable homicide of the teen.
“Goldie was offered – on various occasions – the opportunity to attend parenting classes. She declined to attend,” said prosecutor Ashley Edwards QC.
“On an occasion (at the pub), Goldie was heard to say: ‘I am f***ing sick of her. I wish she would go back and stay with her gran’,” Miss Edwards revealed.
When Robyn was alive, she told her friends how her drunken mother would offer her alcohol and cannabis while ‘constantly’ saying she didn’t want to live with her.
“She said she had told Robyn that ambulances are for people with heart attacks,” Miss Edwards added.
Sadly, Robyn passed away from peritonitis due to perforated ulcer.
