A parent in rural Xianyang, Shaanxi province claims that his five-year-old daughter died out of fright after crossing paths with a large wolf-dog.
The young girl was pronounced dead on arrival at the Xianyang Xixiang Hospital on July 16, and so far the exact cause of death is unclear. Doctors found no wounds or apparent injuries on the girl.
According to the girl’s father, surnamed Zhao, the family had been eating dinner at an outdoor restaurant when the girl and her aunt left to use the restroom. On the way back, she had an encounter with a large wolf-dog.
“[The] dog suddenly jumped out on her way back and she suffered a bad shock,” said Zhao.
“I rushed over to find my girl foaming at the mouth and her pants were soaked from the scare,” he said.
He told reporters that the path to the restroom was dark and she was overwhelmed by the sudden appearance of the dog.
