A 33-year-old Chinese woman, Hu Chen, has been arrested in the city of Cixi in east China’s Zhejiang province for throwing her baby girl and her older brother under a moving lorry.
According to reports posted by Dailymail, the 14-month old girl was crushed by the lorry but her brother was rescued by a passer-by.
Though the six-year-old was said to escape with cuts and a broken arm.It was gathered that Hu Chen flung her children in the street after a disagreement with her husband.
Police reports say the woman had wanted revenge on her husband after they were involved in a row before the incident.
An eyewitness, Li Peng, told a local TV station that: "She picked up one and threw her into the traffic, then grabbed the other and did the same.
"It was heart stopping, I can’t stop thinking about it."
"He was crying," said Li Peng, adding: "He could not have stopped in time.
"The woman just hurled the baby into his path without a word of warning. There was simply no time for him to slow down."
Hu Chen is expected to face a death penalty if found guilty. Her husband is reportedly under sedation in a local hospital.
