Child with mental illness receives no treatment but gets tied up instead

China Daily/ANN | Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Yet another tragedy in modern China.

Xie Guobiao, who is 11 years old now, was diagnosed as mentally handicapped when he was young, but the family was not able to provide him with sufficient medical treatment because of poverty.

At the age of six, Xie started to sneak out of his home when others were not looking, climbing on top of houses and smashing windows.

Xie's family had to pay over 10,000 yuan ($1,606) in compensation to others for the damage he caused. Since then, the family has had to tie Xie up with a rope both at home and in public.

How difficult it is to see your child get tied up for somthing he did unintentionally.

Children with physical or mental disorder must receive more attention in this country!
