In East China’s Jiangsu Province a girl was rushed to the hospital by her husband and a woman who claimed to be her mother-in-law. They said that she was three months pregnant and that she needed a routine test to confirm that her foetus was healthy.
#2 A 20/12-Year-Old
The man lied, saying that the girl was 20. He was arrested. The hospital staff claimed that the little girl was around 12-years-old. The girl’s identity has not been revealed.
#3 A Foreigner
The local authorities were alerted as soon as the three arrived to the hospital and the staff realized she was a schoolgirl rather than a woman. When the doctors tried to question the girl they realized she didn’t speak Mandarin.
#4 “Just Do Your Job”
Someone at the hospital said: “It’s obvious she is just a child, and certainly not anywhere near 20 years old.” That suspicion apparently angered the husband, who was quoted as saying: “I took her here to be examined – just do your job. Stop asking so many questions.”
Police officers found that the girl didn’t have a Chinese ID and concluded that she was a foreign national from Southeast Asia. Investigators suspect that she was abducted or bought as a foreign girl-bride, probably from Vietnam, which is unfortunately quite a common practice among the Chinese.
