A Shanghai woman who was angry with her husband after an argument took out frustration on her eight-year-old son by cutting off three fingers from his left hand, Shanghai Daily reports.
The woman and her husband got into fight over family issues on Wednesday, police said, and the wife was so fired up that she pulled her son over and cut off his fingers with a kitchen knife.
The boy was rushed to the hospital, but it’s unclear whether surgeons would be able to reattach them. The woman has since been detained by police.
Sadly, it’s not the first time we’ve seen a child become the injured victim of a family feud. A six-year-old boy’s ears were cut off and thrown away by his aunt in Hubei province in February after a household fight erupted between the woman and his parents.
