A woman accused of stabbing three babies and two adults at a suspected birth tourism site said she mistook the newborns for wolves.
Yu Fen Wang, 52, told the New York Daily News from Rikers Island she was sorry for the stabbing spree at the residence in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens. Three babies a 12-day-old, a 32-day-old and a 33-day-old were taken to the hospital in critical condition after they were stabbed around 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 20. Wang was charged with five counts of attempted murder.
I dont know why I did such a thing or what I was thinking about, Wang said in Mandarin to the New York Daily News. At the moment, I thought they were not babies, but wolves. So I slashed.
I hope [the babies] didnt get hurt. I hope they are OK, added Wang, a grandmother of three.
Wangs left arm was heavily bandaged due to the self-inflicted cuts when she tried to kill herself after the incident. Police found her unconscious and bleeding in the buildings basement.
I cant live anymore, Wang told the newspaper.
According to multiple reports, the building was being used to house pregnant Asian women who sought to travel to the U.S. on tourist visas so their babies could be born and gain U.S. citizenship.
The facility offered month-long intensive mother-baby care called zuo yue zi, which roughly translates to sitting the month, according to the New York Post. A community source told the newspaper most of the women were from China.

A 52-year-old day care worker allegedly stabbed five people, including three baby girls no more than a month old, at an overnight facility in Queens early Friday, and cops say they found a butcher knife and meat cleaver at the scene.
A 3-day-old girl and a 1-month-old girl were stabbed in the stomach; a 20-day-old girl had a laceration to her ear, chin and lip. All are in critical but stable condition, authorities said. Two other people, a father of a child at the day care and another woman who worked there, were also stabbed at the Flushing center just before 4 a.m. Friday. The woman was stabbed eight times in the torso.
Police say the 52-year-old woman was found unconscious on the basement floor of the day care center on 161st Street with her left wrist slashed in what police say was a self-inflicted wound. She is in police custody at a hospital; officials said she has regained consciousness, but it's unclear if she's talking. Charges are pending.
Authorities say it appears the stabbing spree started with an attack on the adult female. The 31-year-old father who was injured intervened and was stabbed in the leg; then the attack on the children began. Someone called 911.
It wasn't clear whether the stabbed father's child was one of the infants stabbed. He, along with the worker stabbed in the torso, are hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
Nine babies -- five girls, four boys -- were in the house at the time. Police say some other parents were there as well. It wasn't clear whether the facility was licensed or why it had so many newborns there at the time of the stabbing; state records indicate there was a registered business at the location.
An official briefed on the investigation tells News 4 it was a maternity center. Mothers would go there with their newborns and workers would help take care of the babies. Its also a place where foreigners could have their babies here and those children would become American citizens.
Separately, NYPD officials said there was paperwork indicating it was a day care, though they are looking more into the exact nature of the center.
No possible motive has been revealed. Police said they received one 311 call there years ago -- a call about children screaming in 2011.
Video from the scene showed a heavy police presence, with dozens of law enforcement vehicles and officers swarming the scene. Later, officers accompanied by cops in white biohazard suits were seen carrying large bags to a specialized crime scene unit truck.
“No possible motive has been revealed. “
Who doesn’t mistake a baby for a wolf?
Bath salts is a good theory.
“Yu Fen Wang, 52,...”
You Wang Fun?
The perp was right. The birth tourists are ravenous wolves out to destroy this country and culture, sucking up all the free money in the process.
At least it should be a crime.
The 14th was never meant to provide birth citizenship.
“Bath salts is a good theory.”
Nope, this isn’t in Florida.
“Does anyone think congress will ever put an end to it? “
But where will they find their maids and house-slaves ?
After working in and around New Rochelle. They place the poor populations exactly where they want them, and then build mass transit that gets them to their neighborhoods so they can work for minimum wage (Or less) and get no where else to find new work.
I’ve been part of these town meetings, I’ve been part of these discussions. I was their I.T. guy and I’ve seen the face of true evil.
Dont give pregnant women visas
