Seven months ago, Hai left his home for the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum to work for an engineering workshop. Due to carelessness, Hai suffered an electric shock, causing him serious injuries. Doctors said that there was a little hope for his survival. 

Then after the five-month treatment, he recovered but lost both of his arms. From being a strong man, he has now become ailing with less than 50 kilos.

Two months ago, his wife suddenly left home without saying a word, leaving the one-year old son for him behind. He tried to contact his wife to tell her to return home; however, he has not yet received any replies.
