What’s Making China Sad?
In Loudi, a town in central China’s Hunan Province, a one-year-old baby girl was found next to the maggot-infested corpse of her grandmother, who had died seven days previously. Her parents, who had migrated to the south for work, had left the girl in the custody of the 45-year-old woman. The girl, unconscious from starvation, was diagnosed with a life-threatening infection, and put into an ICU for 20 days. She was released from hospital on October 17, and her father promised never to leave her side again.
