China Dad Sells Toddler Daughter To Pay Off Gambling Debts [Photos]

A man in south-west China has been arrested for selling his toddler daughter online for £6,800 in order to pay off his gambling debts.

The man, identified by his surname Jiang, sold the child to a couple after racking up a debt of more than 60,000 yuan (£6,798) by gambling online, according to Chinese reports.

The unemployed man in Guiyang, Guizhou province took his one-year-old daughter away from home and told his wife that the girl would be staying with her grandmother.

Last November, Jiang told his wife that they would be staying with his mother in Zunyi city, about 140 kilometres (87 miles) away from their home.


The mother, sunamed Wang, grew suspicious after she hadn't heard from her daughter for nearly three months.

Every time she asked her husband about their daughter's whereabouts, he would give her different excuses to delay her return.

One day in February, the concerned mother was checking her husband's phone at home when she discovered a screenshot of a conversation between him and her daughter's buyers, revealing the shocking discovery. 

On the same day, she met with her mother-in-law, who told her that the child had been taken away from her weeks ago.

The horrified mother immediately reported the incident to police in Qianling district after her husband was nowhere to be found.

Following investigations, police eventually discovered Jiang at a hotel in Guiyang late February.

He admitted to owing the large sum of gambling debts and opted for the extreme measure after seeing an online post about child adoption. 

Jiang lied and told the buyers, a couple in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province, that he could no longer afford to raise the child because he had been separated from his wife and both his parents were dead.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
