An 11 year old boy from Suzhou, China appears to have sliced his own finger off during an argument with this father. The argument was apparently about a smart phone addiction that the father thought the boy had.
The argument started when the father asked the boy to put down the phone because he thought the son was addicted to it. After a bit of an argument the boy picked up a knife and jabbed it into his hand which severed his index finger on his left hand.
After the incident the boy was taken to the hospital where a three hour surgery was started to reattach the finger. Surgeon Ren Zhourong successfully reattached the boy’s finger but more tests will need to be done in a week or more to determine if the surgery was a complete success.
