Man who threw Chinese toddler to her death asks to be executed
BEIJING (AFP) - A man who threw a Chinese toddler to her death during a row over a parking space has asked for the death penalty, state media reported on Saturday.
Han Lei, 39, told prosecutors he felt so guilty and distressed that he wanted to die, the Beijing News reported.
"I caused such a calamity for the child... please make sure that I am sentenced to death," it quoted him as saying. "I don't want to live any more."
Han took the nearly three-year-old child from her pram and threw her to the ground near a bus stop in Beijing last month after her mother refused to make way for him to park his car, Chinese media have reported.
