A real-life Auntie Maim is facing five years in prison because she cut off her 3-year-old nephew’s penis. The reason for such a barbaric act? He walked in on her while she was on the toilet because he wanted to play a video game on her phone.
Xue Paan, 37, was babysitting the boy for her sister and became so enraged at the intrusion that she went into the kitchen, grabbed a knife, severed his penis, then fled.
The mother, who was at a neighbor’s, heard screaming and returned to find her boy fainted on the floor in a pool of blood. Said mother Cai Tuan, “Next to him was a knife and his penis. It was simply horrific. My sister, his aunt, had gone.”
Qiang Qiang was rushed to hospital where surgeons managed to reattach the penis and was then sent to a specialist clinic in the capital Beijing.
A hospital spokesman said: “Unfortunately, the knife was quite blunt and the cut wasn’t clean so although we reattached the boy’s penis, it wasn’t ideal and he had to have further treatment. However, he has now had three surgeries all of which have been successful and we are confident that his penis will be perfectly OK again in three months.”
A police spokesman said: “The aunt was arrested and admitted attacking the boy because she was angry that he had interrupted her on the toilet.”
The woman is said to be facing 5 years in jail.
