Drunk Dad Beats Up Son, 3, After Mum Walks Out

Drunk Dad Beats Up Son, 3, After Mum Walks Out

An abusive alcoholic dad who beat his son because he was angry when the boy's mother walked out on him is facing jail after he pulled out the boy's fingernails.

Dad Jian Chu, 43, had inflicted weeks of abuse on the three-year-old boy but every time neighbours noticed that he had hurt himself and on one occasion when he was treated at hospital for an injury, he claimed that the child was simply clumsy.

But the drunkard's abuse was discovered when he tried to throw the boy, called Peng, in a river and was stopped by passers-by in the city of Foshan in southern China’s Guangdong Province.

They called police, and when he was trying to tell them that he was only having fun with his son and wanted to teach him to swim, police were almost tempted to once again the believe him before they noticed the child had bandaged hands.

When they looked, they realised that his fingernails had been ripped off completely on four of his fingers, and partially on the other fingers.

He admitted that after drinking he had punished the boy by pulling out his fingernails but said he needed to be disciplined as he was naughty. He also admitted kicking and punching him, and injuries that were consistent with this abuse were found on the youngster's body.

The boy has been separated from his father now and will probably be taken into care while the father will face charges of domestic abuse.
