Why four Chinese children, all siblings, committed suicide

The four — three sisters and a brother, aged 5 to 13 — were found dead after drinking pesticide at their home in Cizhu Village, in the city of Bijie, on June 9. Villagers and officials said the children had lived alone for years because their father has migrated to find work in another province and their mother left home in 2013.
Bijie is no stranger to this type of tragedy. In November 2012, five homeless boys in another village under the city’s administration were found dead in a trash container. Investigators said the youths started a fire in the container to keep warm, but died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
This is really serious situation as Chinese Premier,Li Keqiang, has presently ordered investigation into social security systems.
