A six-year-old boy has been left blind after a woman gouged his eyes out after he was lured to a field in rural China on Saturday.
A woman has been arrested but police said it is too early to speculate on a motive as an investigation is ongoing.
State media had previously had raised the possibility that the boy's corneas were taken for sale because of a donor shortage in China.
However, police said the youngster's eyeballs were found at the scene and the corneas had not been removed.
A hospital spokeswoman told local television that the boy's condition was stable, but there was no hope that doctors would be able to recover his sight.
