What’s Shocking China?
“I do not want to live my life with a retard!”
A surgeon from Shenzhen, Guangdong Province was beaten up by a father for saving his newborn baby, who he believed to have been born with cerebral palsy. “I do not want to live my life with a retard!” The father shouted while attacking the doctor. After suffering severe postnatal hypoxia, the doctor attempted life-saving surgery on the newborn baby while a nurse informed the father. When the nurse returned and told the doctor that the father didn’t want his child saved, the surgery had already been successful. “Seeing the baby struggling to breathe, I didn’t have time to give saving its life a second thought,” said Luo Jun, the doctor. Ironically, later testing proved the baby was completely healthy.
