Brain damaged man locked in a cage for over 40 years

Peng Weiqing, 48, has been in the cage in his mother's home in the city of
Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province, since the age of six. And while it may seem like an incredibly cruel way to treat your only son, Peng Waimei, says that she did it to protect Weiqing.
Waimei and her late husband locked their son away and have fed him through the bars ever since after a series of health problems as a child.
When Weiqing was still a baby he suffered a high fever, which left him brain-damaged.
'When he was young, quite often he would cut himself with a knife and glass debris.
'Even when walking, he could suddenly fall down and hit his face and make it bleed.
With Weiqing's father now dead and his mother aged 80, Waimei fears for her son when she dies and hopes to find someone to take care of him.
