A teenage girl in China has given birth on the street in front of her shocked mother who then tossed the baby away.

Reports claim instead of cuddling her newborn granddaughter, the teen’s mother tossed the baby away on the pavement, claiming her 15-year-old daughter ‘was too young to be a mother’ and ‘we can’t keep the baby’.

Onlookers were shocked by the grandmother’s behaviour.

The newborn girl and the teen mother were later taken to the hospital for treatment by the hospital’s security guards, reports Daily Mail.

The 15-year-old new mother was said to be a student on summer holiday. She was visiting her mother in Taixing, a three-hour train ride from Xuzhou in Jiangsu Province where she studies, according to Kan Kan News.

It’s said that the teenager’s mother, Ms Lin, had noticed her daughter bleeding in her privates and thought she could have suffered period pain. Therefore, Ms Lin took her daughter to the Taixing People’s Hospital.

However, Ms Lin was shocked to see her daughter starting to give birth on the street moments after they got off the bus near the hospital.

Onlooker Ms Zhang said the girl’s mother did not take the baby into the hospital; instead she left it abandoned on the side of the road.

Ms Zhang told Kan Kan News: ‘(The grandmother) said “no, no, we can’t have the baby”, and a lot of passers-by were watching.’

  • The Grandma could have taken the baby into the hospital and left it, not dumped her.
    Baby boys are preferred over than girls too. I wonder if the Grandma will be charged at all.


  • This sort of thing would never happen in Western culture, but other cultures don’t have as high a regard for life as we see it, and certainly not in China.


  • That is just shocking. Not many people would react that way.


  • no one wants their teenager to have a baby but no one should ever do that to an innocent baby, I don’t care what your culture is, the baby is innocent


  • So inhumane and cruel. How could you do that as a patent, grandmother and human being.


  • such a sad situation,i believe in china you can bring disgrace to your family having a child not married and so young such a shame in this day and age this is still happening,i hope the grandmother came to her senses and helped her daughter and grandchild,i hope the little baby gets to live a beautiful life.


  • Such a sad situation for all concerned. I hope the mother has shown remorse for such a dispicable act.


  • Absolutely shocking to read,that mother and her actions is not acceptable!


  • Very very sad and shocking but it is China. This sort of thing isn’t uncommon


  • As sad as this is, it occurred in China and the story removes the context of culture and law. The story is drafted to shock the western world, after all we are taking about a part of the world who removed the documented history and pretends certain events never occured. And this probably wouldn’t be an issue if China didn’t have such tough population control, it seems this grandmother is highly traditional and in her way wants the best for her daughter. Whilst I don’t agree with this behaviour the daughter would have bought great dishonour to the family. Sadly the result probably would have been different if the baby was a boy.


  • Disgraceful. This doesn’t show much love for your own daughter. You may be upset that she was pregnant and she didn’t know, but she shouldn’t take it on the baby. Her daughter needs help and support.


  • So so sad.


  • This is so unnatural. I can’t understand their actions.


  • This sort of thing is just part of the day in China. Human life, animal life, it’s all nothing to them. I pity the poor, tiny, defenceless baby. So very sad for this innocent human


  • I could understand her mother being angry and shocked but that is no excuse for throwing the baby away. Imagine the trauma the girl was going through. Hope the mother and baby get the help they need.
