The woman accused the clinic of swapping her grandson with another child and demanded he be swapped

A grandma took her new-born grandson back to the clinic where he was born and accused staff of swapping him for another child - because she thought he was too ugly.

The woman, who was not named in reports, marched back into the clinic in the city of Santa Marta, in the northern Colombian department of Magdalena, with the boy and his mother in tow.

She demanded the tot be swapped back but was told that there had been no swap, and that only one baby boy had been born in the clinic on the day in question.

Carlos Pallares, health secretary on Santa Marta' city council, said: "The grandmother was not very happy. She did not identify the baby as a new member of the family and therefore she decided to come back to the clinic along with the mother of the baby to return him.

The situation should be accepted. Sometimes biology, genetics play a role in these mistakes and we should accept them."

He added that the women went back home with the baby after clinic staff conducted a health check on him.

City council spokesman Chadan Rosado said that the grandmother was being treated by a psychologist and that people should not be too quick to judge her for her actions.

The baby is said to be in a good state of health and is with his family. It is unclear why exactly the grandma thought the baby was ugly.
