Default CNN: From horror to hope: Boy's miracle recovery from brutal attack

And we have the effrontery to feel superior to others.

From horror to hope: Boy's miracle recovery from brutal attack

By Saeed Ahmed, Lisa Cohen and Sara Sidner, CNN
December 6, 2012 -- Updated 1213 GMT (2013 HKT)

HIDE CAPTION

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • A 7-year-old Bangladeshi boy is mutilated after he refuses to beg
  • He survives -- though his severed organ cannot be repaired
  • A chain of events eventually sees him flown to the U.S. for treatment
  • The case has forced Bangladesh to confront the practice of forced begging
"Operation Hope" will air on CNN International on Saturday, December 8 at 0900 GMT and 2000 GMT. It will also air Sunday, December 9 at 0200 GMT and 1000 GMT; and Monday, December 10 at 0300 GMT.

(CNN) -- "You cannot die! You cannot die!" the father mumbles to the bloodied, mutilated boy who lies unconscious on his lap.

His hands press down on the boy's slashed-open stomach to keep the insides from spilling out. He sobs convulsively.

"Listen to me! You cannot die!" he repeats his morbid mantra. "If for nothing else, to exact justice."

The two are on a rickshaw headed to a hospital in Dhaka. It's not the most effective way to transport a dying child through the cramped, congested streets of the Bangladeshi capital. But it's all that the impoverished father can afford.

The movie Slumdog Millionaire did a good job in portraying this issue although very few cared to notice....

Thats pretty remarkable...really is a medical miracle that he survived. There are 101 ways he could have and should have died! The power of will and the goodness of strangers.

It's a painful story with lots of twist and turn, I am glad it ended well.

Wow. So horrific. Thank goodness he's okay now. It's hard to believe such unimaginably cruel people exist out there.
