Chen Jin Is Not A Selfish Self-centered Teen!


Not all teenagers are selfish self-centered individuals. For example, in Beijing, a 13-year-old Chinese girl tried to commit suicide in order to donate her liver to her cancer-stricken father. Chen Jin swallowed more than 200 sleeping pills after she discovered a medical note in her mother's purse that said her father was dying of liver cancer. Jin's mother climbed in through a back window and found two empty bottles of sleeping pills. The teens note read: "Mom, I'm sorry I couldn't stay with you any longer. Please give my liver to dad and save him after my death."


The teen was taken to the hospital where she remains in intensive care, drifting in and out of consciousness. Even if she survives, she will need surgery for burns she suffered from an electric blanket on her bed. Jin's mother is trying to keep her daughter's desperate act of love secret from her dieing husband.
