[Update 23/01/16]: Some Chinese media outlets (link) claim that it was in fact the child’s stepmother who beat her, not the father. We will do our best to clarify things if more facts become available.
A three-year-old girl was severely beaten by her cruel father after he flew into a fit of rage when she defecated in her pants.
According to NetEase, the incident took place on Thursday in Cixi city, Zhejiang province. When her father saw she had soiled herself, he got furious and began beating her.
The girl’s skull was fractured during the attack, causing massive bleeding and a build up of fluids in the membranes surrounding the brain. Doctors also suspect that her father may also have submerged her in cold water.
The girl is continuing to receive treatment for her injures. The report does not say if the father has been detained by police for his actions.
