I've seen it happen: I've seen this happen is innocent settings and such might be a case.However, without doing the interviews, reviewing x-rays (of the whole body) and reviewing the reports of professional investigators, nothing definite can be said.Everyone becomes a victim when questions of child maltreatment arise. Letting the professionals work through the process protects everybody.
