CHINESE authorities are investigating a policeman who grabbed a seven-month-old baby girl from her parents and threw her to the ground, fracturing her skull.
Guo Zengxi, a policeman from the central city of Linzhou, in Henan province, was on his way to a Karaoke bar after drinking with friends one evening last month when he saw a man holding a baby accompanied by his wife, the Legal Evening News reported today.
After betting with his friends that the child was just a doll, the policeman touched her face then grabbed her from her father, before lifting her up and smashing her on the ground, the report said.
The baby, named Yueyue, suffered three cranial fractures and was taken to hospital, the newspaper said. She will be sent to Beijing for further checks, according to local authorities.
Mr Guo, who was off-duty at the time, received 15 days of disciplinary confinement after the incident but no additional punishment.
After widespread outrage the authorities have said they'll investigate the situation. Considering it's China, maybe the cop will get the same punishment as the head of their FDA who took bribes and allowed melamine in milk.
