A woman has allegedly stabbed a 12 years old boy with a broken beer bottle, gouging his eyes before committing suicide. The unfortunate incident happened when the 12-year-old child was watching over his parent’s shop.
People’s Daily Online reports that Wang Hsu was a neighbor of the family in China’s Jilin Province and had a long-standing land dispute with the boy’s family.

According to the injured boy, Wang entered the store one morning around 6am and bought a bottle of beer. She then reportedly told the boy she wanted an ice-cream from the fridge that was behind him. When he turned to get it, the woman allegedly smashed the bottle over his head and began attacking him with the broken glass.
Police said both of Zhu’s eyes were gouged, and it’s alleged that the woman subsequently set fire to the premises and killed herself with pesticide when she thought the boy was dead.
Zhu’s parents rushed to the store when they saw thick, black smoke rising above the building and found him lying on the ground several meters from the store with his horrific facial injuries.
Zhu said that he climbed out of the store blind after he heard the attacker smashing gas canisters and smelt the smoke.
After being rushed to hospital , doctors removed Zhu’s right eye to prevent infection; his left eye had been seriously damaged during the attack and doctors are not sure whether he will be able to see again.
