Poor boy, only 5 years old, and you're supposed to trust your parents.
Usually a boy would be very close to his mother I'll guess, since fathers would be out working.
And yet the boy was murdered by someone he trusted most - his mother.
RIP little boy!

So sad and tragic... does Japan need more baby hatches?
If a mother's going to end her own life, at least have the decency to let the innocent baby live on!

Sooo sorry for the mother, she thought it's safe leaving her son with grandma but grandma has totally betrayed that trust and killed the son!! So sad....... a lot of people need help in Japan as these news are getting more common by the days!

Is there such a thing as a "confinement nanny" in Japan? If so it might help as you get a helper for the first month after giving birth and a new mother might not be so stressed.
I don't understand why these kinds of news happen a lot in Japan... are the parents there really under so much more pressure than new parents from other countries? So glad the newborn is OK.

This is so sad... there should definitely be more baby hatches.
If this girl has dropped the baby off at the hatch the baby might still be alive. RIP little baby...

This is already available in Singapore, but I'm guessing this version is specifically for the Japanese market?

She's only 1 year old!! She's too young to understand and that punishment definitely isn't fit for anyone, it's more like abuse! He should spend some time on the heater himself!

So glad to hear the baby survived with only minor injuries.
The mother was very selfish to have done what she did.

The police force in HK are just doing their job.
Protestors are really against the gov, not the police.
Just let the police do their job!
