According to accounts, a Chinese teen who was “abandoned twice” by his birth parents died suicide.

According to reports, a Chinese youngster sold as a baby committed suicide after a social media search reconnected him with his birth parents, who subsequently abandoned him again.

According to the Washington Post, a 17-year-old aspiring teacher died of an antidepressant overdose early Monday at a hospital in Sanya, China, according to Chinese media reports.

According to the South China Morning Post, he claimed in a lengthy letter on Weibo — China’s version of Twitter — that he had been “abandoned twice” by his original mother and father.

When he launched a widespread search for his biological parents, he was a teacher. According to his adoptive family, they sold him as a baby for $4,200, with the majority of the money going to an intermediary, according to the Washington Post.

On the other hand, Liu spent the majority of his life being transferred around among his adoptive family after his new parents were murdered in a home explosion when he was four years old, according to local media.

According to the Washington Post, authorities pushed him to use a DNA database developed to combat child trafficking and reunite families after he made a video about his dreams of reuniting with his biological parents.

Initially, the reunion was pleasant, but his connection with his biological parents deteriorated due to allegations that he had been sold rather than given away.

Liu subsequently requested his apartment, which they were reportedly unable to provide.

His mother, who only goes by the surname Zhang, said she cut him off because she needed her “peaceful life” back after the reunion’s spotlight.

Zhang told the Beijing News that she had been harassed and intimidated after her son leaked a recording of one of their phone talks.

The body of a teenager who was sold by his birth parents as a baby and deserted by them again after a recent reunion was found on a beach in the southern Chinese island province of Hainan early Monday morning.

According to the publication, Liu aimed at his detractors who accused him of being selfish after reconnecting with his parents and asking for financial assistance in his 10,000-word suicide note.

“Thank you to everyone who cared about me, and I apologise if I let you down,” Liu wrote. “I wish the world had less evil and wicked people.”

According to the Washington Post, he also disclosed that he was bullied and molested in school.

According to the South China Morning Post, Liu’s body was discovered on a beach in the southern Chinese island province of Hainan by locals who began seeking him after reading his disturbing social media statements.

Chinese authorities confirmed Liu’s death, igniting a nationwide debate about cyberbullying and children’s mental health, particularly those who have been abandoned. According to the Washington Post, a hashtag with his name has been seen 2.4 billion times on Weibo as late Tuesday.

According to a social commentary blog named Slave Society on WeChat, his situation “reflected reality for the underclasses.”

“It started with child trafficking, then it progressed to losing his guardians, school bullying, molestation, cyberbullying, and suicide,” the message said. “It demonstrates how society treated this child over the course of 15 years, and there were gaps in legal and social support institutions.”
