Father in China abandons 5-year-old son at kindergarten following negative paternity test

After discovering that his son was not his biological child, a father in China abandoned a 5-year-old boy at his kindergarten.

The boy, identified by the pseudonym Xiao Rui, was dropped off at school by his father last week in Guangxi province of southern China, reported Jiangxi Morning Daily per South China Morning Post.

Xiao’s father, whose identity remains unknown, purportedly discovered through a paternity test that he was not the boy’s biological father and told staff members that Xiao was now the school’s problem.

Xiao’s teacher, surnamed Chen, stated that his backpack was packed with a change of clothes as well as a mobile phone. After abandoning Xiao, the father purportedly remained in contact with the school but refused to pick up the boy. Chen later stopped by Xiao’s home and discovered it to be empty.
