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.
