The unidentified family friend, concerned at this point, had informed the landlord, Mr Shi, who then went to the rented flat and heard the child crying.

Afraid that the toddler might have been trapped home alone, Shi had called the fire department who had immediately dispatched rescuers to break down the door.

The firefighters, upon their entry into the house had been shocked to find the lonely little girl, dirty and in tears, close to the entrance of the tiny flat, while her mother, Miss Zhang had been found lifeless on her bed.

Paramedics reveal that Miss Zhang, 31, had been dead for at least two days, as Mr Shi reportedly informs the investigators that Zhang has been renting his flat for several years now, adding that he had never seen or heard of his tenant having a husband or a boyfriend.
