A six-year-old boy, whose eyes were gouged out, lies on a hospital bed in Taiyuan, Shanxi province, August 27, 2013.

It’s beyond horrifying: a six-year-old Chinese boy lured into a field has his eyes gouged out by an assailant, blinding him forever — even more unthinkably, the woman suspected of committing the monstrous crime may have been trying to harvest the child’s corneas for cash.

According to China state media via Reuters, the boy, who was from northern Shanxi province, was playing outside but went missing on Saturday, apparently led into a field by an unidentified woman, who then gouged out his eyes and left him bleeding for hours until his parents found him.

The child’s eyes were discovered nearby and retrieved, but doctors were unable to use them to restore his vision. Initial reports noted the corneas had been extracted and passed along public speculation that they’d been removed to be sold on China’s black market for harvested organs. But News.com.au reports that Chinese police say they have, in fact, located the corneas, lowering the probability of an organ-harvesting attack.

News.com.au added that the child, whose surname is Guo, doesn’t yet realize he’s been blinded, and that he’s been asking his family why the sun isn’t coming up.

“We could only tell him that his eyes had some injury and have to be bandaged. [We tell him that] they will be fine after the bandage is removed,” said the boy’s uncle, according to Beijing Youth Daily (via News.com.au). “It is such a difficult question to explain to him. It is the most heartbreaking thing.”

His wonderful chinese family probably did this to illicit donations from around the world. God I hope not, and I hope all this handwringing in this forum doesn't give any more of them the same horrible dark idea.

ATTENTION those who are willing to help.  If anyone here has already started some kind of fundraiser to contribute to this child's future well being, please email me right away so I can help too, at bretadobrenda@gmail.com.  If no one has yet been able to organize something, please let me take the lead and create something great for this angel.  I have never done anything like this before, but ever since I read this story I have not been able to stop thinking about him for one second.  I pray he gets as much love as we can all give. I will put in all my hours outside of my job to work on this.  I just need your help too.  I live in Woodland Hills, CA and I am willing to meet with as many local people that are interested to create plans, fundraisers, events, contact with the family, research, etc on the weekends.  I am free every Sat & Sun.  I worked for the bank for 9 years and I know every regulation involved with creating a trust under this child's name for his sole benefit  and wiring funds to pay for medical bills, therapy, schools, etc without allowing ANY one person, including the parents, to touch these funds unless for his full benefit.  I do not have a lot of money, but I do have a lot of heart and time.  PLEASE help me and lets make a difference.  I will start my research now and contact me at brendabretado@gmail.com.  Thank you very much!!

Dear Ingrid5555,

I'd love to help this little chap,but have no idea what can I do? I also know more people who would like to donate him, however we cannot find any way how he can be helped?

I have just send you an e-mail at imueller@t-online.de 

I am not sure if this is your correct e-mail address as under your other post it is with "2" after "imueller"?

hallo,

i will collect Money, to buy a Brainport. With this device blind People can see with the tongue. (Youtube: keyword "Brainport"). It costs 10000 Euro (13000 Dollar). I can raise 3 or 4000 Euros. So I Need Support.

I think I should install an account in trust. That means, the Money on this account can only be taken with Agreement of the parents of the chinese Boy. So every one could be save, that his donation will come to the Boy.

Dear Mr. oder Mrs. Unique - please can you contact me. May be we - and all other People here can install a Network that collects money. Rehabilitation cost are tremendous, relatives ot the boy say. If you are uncertain - go in a dark room an imagine you had to stay in darkness until dead.

Is there any way we can help this poor child? Can we contribute to a fund that will make his every single day of his life an enjoyable one after such a horrific event. This is a 6 year old boy that will never be able to see again. Lets get together to show this harmless child that people out there care and he is in our hearts.

They should gouge out both of her eyes at the same time, then hang her upside down on chains and smack her really hard in the butt with a paddle that has nails in it.

Pull out her intestines inch by inch as she "watches" with her own eyes. Nonhuman monster...

Some of the help we will definitely need is someone who can speak Chinese and English to start communicating with the family and doctors.  Anyone local (anywhere in Los Angeles) who can speak Chinese please let me know! Thank you.

@Unique Please let me know if there is anything we can all band together to do. When I read this story I started to cry and feel so helpless. There must be something we can do to help. If at all possible, I would like to start a foundation, or some sort of a correspondence with the family to offer support. Do we know how to contact them? I am a student, so I can try to host fundraisers on campus and anything that could make this child's life easier. It's just not fair at all, and I cannot stop thinking about it.
