7-year-old girl suffers brain trauma when attempting to protect her mother

A 7-year-old girl, Wang Yan, suffered severe brain trauma when she attempted to protect her mother from attack by a thug.

According to the girl’s 22-year-old brother, on April 21 when his mother was walking in a street in Shouxian County, Anhui Province, with his little sister, a 55-year-old man suddenly blocked their way and hit the mother in the head with a spade.

When there came another attack, the little girl threw herself in the way, which resulted in the injuries in her little head too by the spade.

The mother died right at the scene for the deadly blow, while the little girl sustained severe brain trauma.

In two months, the 7-year-old girl has been in a coma, though the rescue efforts have saved her life.

The girl was firstly treated in the local hospital in Anhui, but the medical staff there found it difficult to deal with and suggested them to move to a bigger one.

On June 4, Wang Yan was transferred to Shanghai Blue Cross Brain Hospital, where she received treatments from the best brain recovery expert in China.

But the big amount of medical expenses has become a great burden to the poor family.

It was said, prior to this, Wang Yan’s family has already been put in debt, when her 62-year-old father underwent expensive surgery for his advanced esophageal cancer.

The poor family has been relying upon Wang Yan’s 22-year-old brother, who dropped out of junior high school and has been working as a migrant worker since he was 17.

In order to continue giving treatments to the brave girl and cover the medical expenses, Wang’s family now are pleading for the help from the kindhearted people in our society. The local government of the family’s hometown is helping raise fund for them as well.
