Himmelbjerggården is a facility located near Ry in Denmark. It houses children and teenagers which need treatment for various issues. Around 2014 they accepted a 15 year old boy despite not being able to handle the teenager. As result of this decision an employee was raped. Before this tragedy the facility had been ordered to upgrade their security but at the night of the rape the phones were not working and due to the remote location no cell phones will work in the area.
The boy was sentenced to two years and 6 months in prison. In an earlier trial he was sentenced for an assault on another resident at the facility.
It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager if the security is not in order and the employees are not trained to handle the issues the teenagers are sent there to be treated for.
