Chinese day care worker who slashed three babies in nursery claims she confused them with ‘wolves’

A Chinese immigrant claims that she thought the newborns that she brutally stabbed in a New York nursery were actually wolves.

Yu Fen Wang, 52, apologized for slashing three newborn infant girls and two adults during a September 20 incident at the illegal Queens business. 

‘I don’t know why I did such a thing or what I was thinking about,’ Wang said to the New York Daily News.  ‘At the moment, I thought they were not babies, but wolves. So I slashed.’

The infants – a 12-day-old, 32-day-old and 33-day-old – were all rushed to the hospital and are listed in critical injuries. A fourth infant suffered a skull fracture.

Wang, a grandmother, had tried to commit suicide and was found in the basement of the Mei Xin Care Inc. business. She was taken to a hospital and had a heavily bandaged arm. 

The woman was charged with five counts of attempted murder.

 ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry,’ she added. ‘I hope (the babies) didn’t get hurt. I hope they are OK.’

Two weapons were found at the scene of the attacks. 

‘I can’t live anymore,’ Wang asserted repeatedly. 

Wang was found unconcious and bleeding when they arrived at the three-story home in the Flushing neighborhood.

Wang had worked at the nursery for the past five years. 

She has been listed as being on suicide watch. 

‘I hope to redeem myself,’ she declared. ‘If time could be reversed, I hope I just didn’t commit such a mistake and just be a good person.’ 

Wang arrived in Queens eight years ago from the Fujian province in China. She and her husband have two sons and three granddaughters. 

The grandchildren are ages two, three months and one month. 

‘I hope to go home and take care of my granddaughters, so that my sons and daughters-in-law can work,’ she added.
