Toddler rescued from China train crash may lose leg

A toddler rescued nearly a day after a deadly high-speed train crash in eastern China's Zhejiang province may lose her leg, according to the English version of  Xinhuanet, the online news service of state-run news agency Xinhua.

Xiang Weiyi, 2, is being monitored closely in intensive care at a medical facility connected with Wenzhou Medical College, ICU director Pan Guoquan told the news agency.

The child lost a lot of blood in two toes of her left foot, and doctors are waiting to see if her blood circulation in her leg returns, according to Xinhuanet. Otherwise, the leg could be amputated, he told the agency.

The news comes as nationwide outrage continued Monday in China over the government's response to the deadly bullet train collision.

The Saturday train collision, which killed at least 38 people, happened near Wenzhou. The girl was reportedly the last to be rescued from the mangled train cars.

      There are many good things happening in the world Jimmy, it is just so sad that the news does not find them of enough interest to publish. Too many readers seem to be more excited about bad news than good. It is a tragic statement of our society.

    She was rescued after Chinese officials had already begun burying the trains... yes, burying the trains. Because nothing says "we'll have an investigation to found out what caused this accident" like burying the evidence.

    I have to agree with Nigel.
    There are many wondrous things happening, but the people seem to want blood and guts instead of happy stories.

    In any case, I wish this little girl well, and a speedy recovery.

    Condolences to the families of those who perished.

    Really? Interesting...

    Train crash took out one leg, but no worries, the radiation from the nuke plant will take care of his other one to balance her out.
