Once upon a time in China

A man is giving away his 4 years old son on the internet. A healthy and pretty son, whose widowed father can no longer provide for. The story behind this is even more tragic: the man once saw two thieves robbing a peasant, and he tried to intercede. The two criminals stabbed him 5 times, what caused him to stay in hospital for a long while, costing the family some 20,000 RMB (about $2,500) that they couldn't afford. After this tragedy, the man's wife, overwhelmed by the debts and hard times, committed suicide, leaving their son motherless.
These stories happen in the World's 4th economy...
