Chinese Teen Attempts Suicide to Give Dying Father New Liver

A 13-year-old Chinese girl took 200 sleeping pills in a suicide bid so that her dying father could receive her liver, the Daily Mail reported.

Chen Jin is in critical condition in a Shanghai hospital after ingesting the pills in January and being burned by an electric blanket. The teen left her mother a note indicating she wanted her liver to go to her cancer-stricken father.

Chinese media reported that Chen had recently discovered her father was dying of liver cancer.

"Mom, I am sorry that I could not be with you anymore. Please give my liver to father after I die," her suicide note read, according to the Daily Mail.

She was taken to the same hospital where her father is receiving treatment.
