A 22 months old boy has been saved by doctors after his mentally ill mother allegedly severed his penis and one of his testicles.

The little boy was asleep when his mother suddenly became mentally unstable with a cleaver in her hand.

Report shows that when she realised what she had done, she tried to commit suicide.

A mother-of-two in China has reportedly severed their son's penis and one of his testicles when she was mentally unstable

The child and the mother were rushed to the hospital by neighbours who saw them in a pool of blood and both have been saved.

The boy’s father has pleaded for help from the public after surgery and treatment for his wife and son left him with massive medical bills.

The mother, known by her surname He, suffers from intermittent explosive disorder.

Patients with intermittent explosive disorder, or IED, suffer from bouts of uncontrollable anger. They lose their tempers repeatedly, often in response to minor frustrations.

As many as 7.3 percent of adults may suffer from the condition in their lifetimes, according to National Institutes of Health in the United States.

The boy’s father, named by media as Wu Shaozhong, said that he was working in a clothing factory at the time when he was called to the hospital by his neighbours.

It is reported that the neighbours saw the mother and son in blood and took them to the Second People’s Hospital.

48 year old Mr Wu, revealed that his wife was diagnosed with intermittent explosive disorder six years ago and was treated.

The devastated Mr Wu also said that his wife had apparently thrown his son’s severed penis and testicle ‘somewhere’.

‘We still haven’t found them,’ said the father.

Mr Wu was also quoted saying he didn’t know how to live with his wife in the future.

The two-year-old boy, known by his nickname ‘Ahang’, was given emergency surgery to stop his bleeding and remains hospitalised as of writing.

He is described to be in a non-life-threatening condition.

Wu and his wife got married in 2005 and have two sons: 11-year-old Acheng and 22-month-old Ahang.
The family is said to be poverty-stricken. In addition to his wife and two children, Mr Wu has to look after his disabled, chronically ill mother.

Wu was left owing more than 150,000 yuan (£17,607) to the hospital and the man pleaded with the public to help him and his family overcome the difficulties.

Nonprofitable Organisations and charities have reportedly got in touch with the family and raised money for the boy.

The boy is recovering in the hospital.

It remains unclear whether Mrs He would be charged.

But according to Chinese criminal law, a person is not criminally responsible if he or she has a mental disorder. The person’s family or custodian, however, is required to look after the person and provide treatment for the person.
