A man in Guangxi province gouged out his wife’s eye with his hand after he’d discovered that she was in a new relationship and wanted a divorce.
According to Want China Times, the 39-year-old woman, surnamed Li, had met her husband, surnamed Long, on the internet last year. After three months of dating, the man had changed, according to Li. When she refused to help him pay off the 150,000-yuan that his family had accumulated, Long beat her. She tried to leave him, but he was in possession of all of her identification documents and his threats to harm her family kept her around.
After weeks of intimidation, Li was coerced into marrying the man. She met a new boyfriend later that year, however, and when Long showed up at her rented house and saw them together on December 13, he attacked her boyfriend. While Li tried to protect the man, Long beat her then gouged out her eye with his hand.
After the attack, he sent her to a hospital and called the police to turn himself in. Li lost her eye completely during the attack, and is now reaching out for women’s rights groups to help her.
No eye, nose or testicle is safe.
