Newscast Media BEIJING—A Web site that chronicles trendy stories among Chinese users reported Wednesday on the shocking discovery of a newborn girl found with her throat cut and abandoned inside a trash can. The story angered readers due to such a brutal act by a parent, but also softened the blow because the baby survived.


The Web site reported:

"On June 23, an old scavenger found a premature-born baby girl while digging in a trashcan in front of a residential building on Yingshan Road, Anshan City, Liaoning Province. The baby girl’s throat was cut, deep into her windpipe, and was abandoned with the placenta wrapped in a plastic bag. When she was found, her skin had turned bluish and purpleish due to an oxygen deficit. After emergency treatment, the baby survived. The local are already involved."


According to Dr. Wu Ping who performed the surgery, the baby’s neck was almost cut half way through, and if it went half a centimeter deeper, she wouldn’t have survived. The wound was clean and neat, likely from a knife, and extremely likely to have been done by a person. A scar will accompany the child for the rest of her life.

The site chinaSMACK posted several pictures of the baby, from the time it was found, until after the operation was performed. (pop-up)

Workers from the local community committee said they will send the baby to a children’s welfare institution/orphanage after she is discharged from the hospital.
