The story of a university freshman who gave birth in her dormitory toilet then dumped the baby before heading to class has shocked residents in her school’s town of Kunming, Yunnan Province.
The girl reportedly gave birth to the child in the bathroom of her vocational college around 6 a.m. then took off to her classes as if nothing had happened. Nobody knew she was pregnant, and her classmates and roommates believed her when she’d told them she put on weight.
The child’s cries were heard in the bathroom by another student, who immediately called for the help of a teacher.
The baby was wrapped up in a blanket in sent to the hospital, where it remains in stable condition.
Baby abandonment centers have been built throughout the country to curb baby dumping in China, yet it continues to be a last resort for women facing unwanted pregnancies or pregnancies out of wedlock.
