Complete senselessness is to blame for this child in Guangxi suffering serious brain damage.
Modern Life Daily has reported on the child’s serious condition after he was fed rice wine by his uncle.
According to the report, the incident occurred in February, while the uncle was staying at the family’s home. Alarm was raised when the mother discovered the boy had become discoloured and was vomiting and convulsing. The child was rushed to hospital, where he spent five days in intensive care.
While he clung to life, tests have revealed that the boy suffered from critical brain damage, and now has delayed reactions, difficulty performing simple tasks and forming speech, although he was once a clever and fluent speaker.
The report claims the uncle contributed money towards the child’s treatment, but the family has found it hard to contact him since.
Mistreatment of children has spent a disconcerting amount of time in the news headlines in China recently, with continued reports of abusive parents and teachers triggering public outrage.
