Baby born in China four years after parents died in vehicle crash

Chinese kids are pushed into classes early in life

A Chinese baby was born by a surrogate mother four years after his parents were killed in a vehicle accident.

The parents of the child died in a vehicle crash in 2013.

The pregnant mother successfully gave birth to a baby boy in December a year ago.

Both Shen and Liu's parents, the boy's grandparents, have spent the last four years fighting a legal battle to have the rights to their late children's embryos. After their untimely death, the grandparents-in-waiting fought a protracted legal battle to inherit the fertilized eggs that were frozen in a Nanjing hospital's liquid nitrogen tank.

Their unique case was controversial, since there is now no existing law in China that grants parents of couples inheritance of their children's embryos.

The couple's parents had to file two lawsuits to get hold of four fertilized embryos produced by the couple at a hospital in Nanjing. Since no precedent existed, they were eventually granted the embryos. The eggs were only allowed to be transferred from the Nanjing hospital if another hospital agreed to store them, but with surrogacy being against the law in China, finding an institution to facilitate proved hard.

Eventually, the future grandparents worked with a surrogacy agency and decided on Laos, a country bordered by Thailand and Vietnam where commercial surrogacy was legal.

Since no airline was eager to carry a thermos-sized bottle of liquid nitrogen, the precious cargo had to be transported by vehicle, reveals BBC.

Little Tiantian was born in December and, according to Liu's mother, he looks just like his father.

Citizenship of the child, named Tiantian, was another problem though and so he was born not in Laos but in China - with the surrogate travelling there on a simple tourist visa.

After the birth late past year, all four grandparents took DNA blood tests to confirm they were related to the boy.
