 Bloemfontein - The parents of a 10-year-old girl accused of forcing her to exercise excessively are due to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Friday.

The 38-year-old mother and her husband, 31, face charges of attempted murder and child neglect.

The attempted murder charge relates to an incident in October last year when the girl allegedly had to swim continuously in the Krugerdrift Dam, outside Bloemfontein, while her parents watched from the side.

When the girl was tired of swimming, she was allegedly assaulted and forced to swim again. - Sapa
