A 22-year-old car mechanic in Wenzhou was attacked by the relatives of a two-year-old boy he heard crying in the middle of the road outside his workplace. He asked the unaccompanied child if he was lost, but the child just continued to cry, shouting “Daddy”. Upon offering to take him home, the boy nodded instantly. Leading the way, the mechanic then ran into the boy’s family. Suspecting him to be a child trafficker, they grabbed him by the throat, kicked him to the ground, and then dragged him to a shop door, upon which the boy’s mother approached, ignored all explanation, and yelled that she was calling the police.
