A two-year-old girl in China who lived with her dead grandmother for over a week is recovering, a media report said.
The girl's digestive system was returning to normal after being without food for several days, said Xiao Tao, a doctor in Changsha, capital of Hunan province.
The girl was found Sep 27. She was lying in the arms of her dead grandmother Wang Lichun, reported Shanghai Daily.
The girl was found by her neighbours. She suffered from dehydration, skin infections, wounds.
Her father, Xiao Kaiquan, said he had not been able to contact Wang for more than a week.
"It seems my daughter did not have any food to eat for a week," the girl's father was quoted as saying.
