Chinese mother cages epileptic son for 40 years

London, December 15 : A Chinese man had been kept in a cage for more than 40 years by his mother so that he wouldn't hurt himself.

Peng Weiqing, who had suffered brain damage and epileptic fits since his childhood, was kept in a custom made cage built by his father in the city of Zhengzhou, the Mirror reported.

The 48-year-old man's mother said that she had to keep him locked in the cage, as they couldn't afford medical treatment, and she feared he would cut himself with knives and glass debris.

Weiqing's 80-year-old widowed mother said that when her son was a child, he would suddenly fall down and hit his face and bleed.

She added that she fears for her son and hopes to find someone to take care of him.
