Six-year-old Siyao who has been left behind at a Chinese bath house by her grandfather as a deposit after he said he forgot his wallet
When Siyao and her grandfather arrived at the bath house in the city of Kunming, he promptly requested a thorough wash in a hot tub, followed by a soothing massage, Central European News reports.
But when it came time to settle the bill, the unidentified granddad claimed he had left all his money at home and added that he could go and get it really quickly.
?He told the reception that he would leave his granddaughter Siyao behind as proof that he intended to return,? explained bath manager Mee Wang.
As the hours passed, there was no sign of the man. Pretty soon, the staff realized the cruel grandfather had chosen to leave Siyao behind rather than coughing up the cash.
Once word spread about Siyao being abandoned, local media tried reaching out to her grandfather to ask him to come forward, but to no avail. Before they knew it, more than a month had passed and the young girl was still living in the Yunan province bath house.
Employees have grown fond of Siyao and do their best to make sure she feels at home, according to CEN.
Every night they make sure she is tucked into bed and they even arrange to leave a TV on for her in case she feels lonely or scared.
