A 7-year-old boy is scarred by cigarette butts and his hands are facing amputation. The suspect is his biological father

Doctors found that the child’s hands did not have a piece of good skin, serious muscle infection, and even necrosis, the worst possible is that the hands will be amputated. < p > < p > this 7-year-old boy is called Xiao Weihao, and his home is in Diancheng Town, Dianbai County, Maoming City. He had been living with his grandparents until he was 4 years old, but in 2017 he was taken by his parents working in Huizhou. On the 28th of last month, Xiao Weihao had a high fever due to severe burns on his hands. He was taken to Guangzhou Nanfang Hospital by uncle and cousin. < p > < p > chief physician of burn department of Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University: “the first time I was admitted to the hospital, I found that the depth of the burn wound on both forearms and hands reached the level of third degree burn, and as far as we know, the wound infection did not receive regular and systematic treatment, leading to wound infection, which further developed into the degree of necrotizing fasciitis that we professionally call necrotizing fasciitis.” It is understood that on October 28, Xiao Weihao was taken to Nanfang Hospital by his family for the first time due to severe burns to his hands. At that time, the doctor’s treatment plan was to carry out surgical treatment immediately. However, he was afraid that no one would take care of Gu Weihao at that time and that the medical expenses were relatively high, so his family refused and later took him back to his hometown in Maoming. < / P > < p > due to the lack of improvement in local treatment, xiaoweihao’s physical condition is getting worse and worse. On October 31, he was again sent to Guangzhou Nanfang Hospital by his uncle and grandfather, and was immediately hospitalized for treatment. < p > < p > after the first debridement, xiaoweihao’s condition was temporarily stabilized. However, due to the deep degree of infection, the wound is more extensive. If xiaoweihao’s injury continues to deteriorate, both hands may not be able to keep. < / P > < p > chief physician of burn department of Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University: “in the future, children will face partial amputation of hands and forearms and extensive infection and necrosis of muscle and soft tissue. Even if the wound is closed in the future, after treatment, it is possible that the function of children’s upper limbs will have very large defects.” < p > < p > in order to relieve the pain of the child, doctors and nurses can only adjust the sleeping position, put on various protective equipment, and act carefully. The medical staff, who had never known each other, could not bear to let little Weihao suffer more. < p > < p > the reporter saw that there were several blackened strangulation marks on his neck and many old scars the size of cigarette butts on his body. The 7-year-old boy is bony, with rows of ribs clearly visible. < p > < p > chief physician of burn department, Nanfang Hospital, Southern Medical University: “the level of physical development, including the level of hemoglobin, albumin and globulin, is far lower than that of normal peers.” < p > < p > in front of xiaoweihao’s hospital bed, it was his uncle Huang Huajin. In the child’s painful cry, he looked very helpless. As Xiao Weihao lived with his parents in Boluo County, Huizhou, Huang Huajin had not seen his nephew for a year. He could not have imagined that it would be like this when he saw Xiao Weihao again. It is understood that xiaoweihao’s parents are engaged in catering work in Boluo County, Huizhou City, and there are two younger brothers and sisters in the family. Huang Huajin said that in fact, every year when children return to their hometown for Spring Festival, there are many scars on their bodies. He knew that little Weihao was naughty, and thought it was his parents’ way of discipline. < p > < p > at present, Huizhou and Maoming police have moved quickly. BOLUO police have filed a case to investigate the incident, while Xiao Weihao’s father is under police control in Maoming. Lawyer Chen Qiaodan: “according to the regulations, it constitutes the crime of maltreating the ward. If the circumstances are serious, the offender may be sentenced to imprisonment for less than three years. If the act causes a more serious crime, such as minor injury or more, it may also constitute the crime of intentional injury.” 2
