Recently a doctor in China has come out and spoken about the recovery of one of the strangest, and most cruel, cases of child abuse imaginable. In the above video, where much of his interview with reporters is transcribed, the doctors tells of how one day an infant boy was brought in with severe wounds to his genitals. What he heard from the boy’s grandmother shocked him completely.
The boy’s mother, who had divorced his father and grown bitter that he had re-married, returned to her in-law’s home to visit her son after months of being absent from the boy’s life. The boy’s grandmother, who was deeply suspicious about the woman’s sudden return, spoke to the press about how strange it was for the mother to return.
“She has left home for more than a year and even remarried another man. I told her that she has already remarried, please don’t come here anymore.”
The grandmother later checked in on her grandson but found that his mother had disappeared, and that the boy was lying there bleeding from his crotch.
A pair of scissors were nearby, and it soon became clear what had happened. The boy’s mother had cut his penis off using a pair of scissors to spite her ex-husband and her former in-laws.
“She used a pair of scissors, one of those huge scissors that we use at home,” his grandmother said.
Luckily the boy’s family were quick enough and rushed him to hospital in time. The attending doctor, who recently gave an interview on the case, told reporters that they managed to reattach the boy’s penis. He may experience some difficulty as he grows, but if the recovery continues to go well then he will one day be able to father children.
Meanwhile police in China are continuing to investigate the case, and they say that currently the woman’s motivation remains unclear. The boy’s family, however, insist that she did it to spite her ex-husband and his family.
No matter what the reason, this remains an exceptional case of child abuse and one of the most sickening, and bizarre, attempts by an adult to use their child to get back at an ex. We hope the boy is okay and makes a full and speedy recovery. We cannot imagine just how horrific this must have been to go through.
