November 5, 2018
(Daily Mail) – Three people have been detained in central China for stealing a dead patient’s eyeballs from a hospital mortuary, Chinese media reported. The man, surnamed Li, died of organ failure on Tuesday morning at Ningxiang People’s Hospital in Hunan province and was discovered in a mutilated state by his horrified sister several hours later. ‘Cotton balls were stuffed in the left eye and a surgical tool used to expand the eye socket was in the right eye. Both his eyeballs were gone,’ the woman wrote in a social media post appealing for justice.
