China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

An 80-year-old woman in Gaoyou at­tempted sui­cide by in­gest­ing toxic pes­ti­cide but re­vived as her fam­ily planned her funeral, Mod­ern Ex­press re­ported on Thurs­day. The woman, sur­named Pan, a res­i­dent of Cheluo town­ship, in­gested the pes­ti­cide at about 1 am on Aug 3, feel­ing she was a bur­den to her fam­ily be­cause of the long-term cost of her med­i­cal treat­ments. She was sent to a lo­cal hos­pi­tal, which aban­doned treat­ment when she seemed near death af­ter more than two hours of emer­gency treat­ment. Later, at 7 am, she re­vived as fam­ily mem­bers planned her funeral. She is now in sta­ble con­di­tion.
