Senior forgave pregnant thief
A 78-year-old man, who was saving to pay for his own coffin, has forgiven the woman who stole part of his savings. The man, surnamed Chen, earns 10 yuan ($1.49) to 20 yuan a day recycling discarded beer bottles he finds in the city’s Dazu district. On Oct 15, he realized some of his money had been stolen. Chen reported the theft to police, but after he discovered the culprit was the 21-year-old pregnant woman who lived next door, he gave her some more money and asked her to be his surrogate daughter. The woman is now on bail.
