Father tethers son after losing his daughter
A two-year-old boy is chained to a post outside a shopping mall when his unlicensed motorbike taxi driver father was at work in Fangshan district, Beijing. The 42-year-old father, Chen Chuanliu, says he lost his four-year-old daughter last month and the extreme measure was the only way to keep his son safe. Since Friday, he has been tethering the boy so he can leave to pick up customers. But he stopped the practice yesterday after an approach from the local government. The boy's mother is reportedly mentally disabled. All photos were taken on Feb. 1, 2010. [Photo/CFP]
