The touching story below will melt your heart.

The parents of a 2-year-old girl, who suffered from the deadly hypoxic-ischemic cerebral palsy, have donated her organs to save the lives of two children they never met.

The toddler was named “Xiwang (希望)” or “Hope” by the parents, because they would like other children who needed help to have the “hope” to live. “Rather than just leaving the child in a handful of ashes at the end, we would donate her organs to save other children’s lives,” said Wang Xiaofei, the toddler’s mother.

At 17:30 June 9, the father gave the last kiss on the forehead of his daughter, a two-year-old girl named Xiwang, or “Hope” whose life came to an end due to hypoxic-ischemic cerebral palsy. She was then sent to the operating room in Chifeng hospital in Innner Mongolia to save the two children far away in Tianjin who suffered from organ failure. The donated organs arrived at Tianjin First Central Hospital around 02:00 on June 10 and were successfully transplanted to two children.

The aunt gentle stroked Xiwang’s forehead.

The grandparents, parents, and other relatives all looked very sad, accompanying the child by the sides for hours. You cannot imagine how strong beliefs they have, in making decision of donating their beloved child’s organs to strangers.

Doctors and nurses bowing to body of Xiwang to pay their last respects to her donation.

It was learned Xiwang’s parents have spent more than 200,000 yuan on medical expenses for treating their child, leaving them in debt of over 70,000 now. The local media have voluntarily called the public to raise funds for the kindhearted parents or find stable jobs for them. But they rejected the help, saying, “we are still young and we can support ourselves. If we accept the donations, it will make us feel like we’re ‘selling’ our child.

The father couldn’t help crying when Xiwang was out of the operating room.

My child is gone, but we can give her organs to other children to prevent another family tragedy. I don’t think I did it for anything; I just did it. I just hope others won’t experience the pain I have gone through; I want to do what I could to prevent it,” said Wang Xiaofei, Xiwang’s mother.

Man suspected of molesting woman passenger on subway seized

A pervert who was suspected of molesting a woman passenger on a subway train in Shanghai was arrested by the local police, according to a Sina Weibo post.

At around 7:45 a.m. of June 13 during the rush hour, when the crowded No. 1 subway train that Ms. Chen was riding on stopped by the Pengpu Xinchun Station, a man, in his 30s, got on the train and stood by her right side.

When the train was approaching the People’s Square Station, Ms. Chen, wearing denim shorts, suddenly felt something liquid and hot falling on her leg.

In the beginning I thought it was someone’s food for breakfast,” said Ms. Chen. But soon she realized that it was the cum from the man standing next to her right.

Ms. Chen took out her mobile photo to call police, but the man grabbed away her phone. Angry woman seized it back again.

The two then fell into an argument on the platform, which aroused attention from other passengers. The pervert was soon surrounded by the onlookers and security guards, but he still managed to sneak away in the crowd when the security guards were questioning both of them.

He’s wearing a ring. He’s possibly married,” the victim was quoted as saying.

Through the work of local police and help from the eye-witnesses, the suspect was finally nabbed at night of the same day.

On summer days, the women are vulnerable to be taken advantage of by perverts, especially in the crowded areas, such as the subways, buses, and shopping malls.

The police have intensified their crackdown on such incident.

In another case this week, another man who used his mobile phone to get sneak shots under a woman’s short skirt on a subway platform in Shanghai was seized too by the police.
