More horrible news from Foshan’s Nanhai district, the exact same area where the double hit-and-run of two-year-old toddler Yueyue made international news last month. Nurses at the city’s Nanhai District Red Cross Hospital dumped a newly-born infant in a plastic bag in the toilet, thinking it was dead when it was actually still alive.
Shortly after giving birth, Liu Dongmei, a 23-year-old Jiangxi native, and her husband were told by nurses that they had just given birth to a girl, and that the girl was dead. The baby was put away by the nurses in the bathroom quickly without being shown to the parents. Liu’s husband said he did not hear the baby crying.
The situation only came to light when Liu’s sister and her husband arrived at the hospital and demanded to see the body of the baby. It was then that they discovered that the baby was actually a boy, and he was alive, just crying very faintly.
Their video of a nurse bringing the baby back out from the toilet has gone viral on the internet, and the two nurses who delivered the baby have since been sacked.
