Boy Dies After Swallowing Acid
A 2 year old boy was rushed to hospital but died on the way after he was forced to drink a strong acid by a woman. The boy, named Huang Hongbo was playing in Hebei Village in Futian District last Wednesday when a woman named Xiong, 29, approached him and forced him to swallow the acid inside a bottle as revenge on the boy’s father.
A cook at a nearby restaurant thought that the woman was a relative when she saw her forcing the baby to drink from a bottle, and suddenly heard the boy crying, sitting on the ground with burns on his face, mouth and chest. The boy died on the way to the hospital.
