China: Hospital said premature baby is not worth saving

ChinaSMACK translated a local story about a hospital mistook a premature baby boy as baby girl and told the family that it was dead then trashed it in the plastic bag in the hospital room's toilet. Later the family's relative found out the baby is a boy and still moving. This baby was lucky enough to be saved. How about others who are not worth saving as the hospital put it?
