She broke up with her boyfriend because her parents forced her to but her viscious parents locked her up in a dirty place. Photos were posted online by a netizen named Chow Jen because she pitied the girl. Chow Jen said that the people in the town knew that the girl was there but were afraid to tell the authorities because the parents of the girl spread a rumor that she was mentally ill. Though Zhang Qi tried to escape several times but people forbade her to and brought her back to her shed.
On an interview Chow Jen said, “Every time I came back for Chinese New Year I went to visit her secretly. On my latest visit though I saw her lying on a pile of straw with a couple of blankets and some food around her and I just decided enough was enough. Whether what they say about her having mental problems is true or not, she is being treated like an animal here and I’m sick of it so I contacted the police, and then posted the images online." The video report of the story is has gone viral all over social media and has gained quite an attention up to the point that people, channels, pages and websites reblogged the video.
