Flailing in the water, the teenager heard a voice. "He told me to grab his hand, that he will save me," she said.


She and the stranger were swept into a muddy river. When they reached a bank, he pushed her into a bed of brambles and raped her.


"I screamed and told him not to hurt me," the shy teenager told The Associated Press. "He put his hands around my neck and told me that even if he kills me right there, no one will know."
What a sick sick bastard..

Terrible. Absolutely horrific. What makes it even worse is that she's doubly abused. First by the rapist and then again by the community which stigmatises the victim rather than the rapist.
