A disabled French girl is fighting for life in hospital after rats swarmed into her bedroom and bit her.

The 14-year-old paraplegic, named Samantha, was sleeping on the ground floor of a rented house in Roubaix when she was attacked.

Her father found her “drenched in blood” in her medical bed last Saturday, according to local media.

She suffered 45 facial lesions, 150 on her hands and 30 on her feet in the horrific incident, a medical expert has said.

A forensic pathologist confirmed the injuries were caused by a “pack of rats.”

The girl’s father is suing the landlord for alleged negligence. According to reports, rubbish bins nearby were overflowing.

“There was blood coming from her ears – I was terrified that she might have had a brain haemorrhage,” he told local newspaper Courrier-Picard.

He said some of the girl’s fingertips had been bitten off surgeons cannot repair them.

While police investigate the attack, the family have been moved to a different house.

Such attacks on humans are rare, but rats are sometimes known to feed on corpses.

The hospital has run tests on the teenager for possible infections, including rabies. The rabies test was negative.
