An eight-month old baby is struggling for recovery in hospital after both her hands were chopped off by her very own grandmother. The horrifying and disgusting incident took place in the Shandong Province of China when the baby was being looked after by her grandmother while her parents were out for work.

Even though grandmother’s exact motive behind the act remains unclear as she remain in coma since the accident, it is being believed that she hacked off the infant’s hand before she attempted to kill her own self. According to a neighbor who witnessed the aftermath of the incident and also accompanied the baby and her mother to the hospital said: “I saw the woman came back home after work in the early afternoon but only 10 minutes later she dashed down holding her baby, who was covered with blood.“The baby's hands were gone."
The neighbor also said that the mother called her husband and asked him to go home and pick up the chopped hands.
Doctors started a 12-hour operation to reattach the infant’s hands. Even if the operation is successful, it is likely that the eight month old will have to undergo further procedures to restore full function.
