A man who vowed to spend the rest of his life taking care of his comatose girlfriend has been accused of putting her in the coma in the first place… by the victim herself.
Yes, the world turns and the plot thickens. An otherwise Hallmark-esque vow of love suddenly turned quite dark when Lin Yingying woke from her eight-month-long slumber last year after receiving a severe blow to the head back in September 2014, and revealed the truth of her injury to her family.
Lin says that her boyfriend, Liu Fenghe, viciously beat her with a rolling pin after she accidentally burnt some bread at a bakery they both ran in Dalian, Liaoshen Evening News reports.
This revelation came as quite the shock to all involved, since up until then, Liu had seemed like the perfect boyfriend, spending hours by his girlfriend’s bedside and 200,000 RMB on her treatment. He was even praised as a hero by local news outlets for his seemingly selfless devotion.
Alas, his image was shattered last May when Lin awoke and told her parents about what happened. She said that Liu had abused her before and had threatened her to keep quiet. Over the weekend, Lin’s father finally reported the case to the police. China recently introduced its first-ever domestic violence law on March 1st.
