A one year old boy in Guangdong has been hospitalized and is in a critical condition after he was attacked by a 47 year old woman who cut off his penis, Asia One reports.
The boy had reportedly taken a shower with his sister and was playing outside when his neighbor, a 47 year old woman named Lee, rushed to him with a knife, and “went straight to his penis” to cut it off, according to the Nanfang Daily.
The boy was rushed to the People’s Hospital and has now undergone two surgeries, but is still in critical condition.
The boy’s father said that the woman who hurt his son has an intermittent history of mental illness, but seemed relatively stable.
“I know she is usually a little strange, but I never thought she would hurt my child,” he said.
Lee has been detained by police and will undergo psychiatric evaluation.
