This special girl is named Nguyen Thi Thu Hong, 20, in Ha
Binh village, Binh Minh commune, Thang Binh district, the central province of
Quang Nam.

It was previously rumored that a girl in Quang Nam is
still alive even though she has not eaten any cooking for the past three years.
She has only consumed some water. It is also said that this is a girl from the
heaven, who doesn’t need food, just the air.

When the girl took the veil in a Buddhist temple in Binh
Phuc commune, Thang Binh district, Quang Nam province, many unreal stories
were rumored about the girl. The local police have investigated and confirmed
that the story about this girl is real.

However, she went to the Buddhist temple not to become a
Buddhist nun.

According to VietNamNet’s investigation, the girl named Hong
went to a small pagoda in Binh Phuc commune for treatment. She is very weak at
present. She can only lie on a bed in a small room behind the pagoda.

According to Sau, since Hong abstained from food, she has
not bathed, and just changes her clothes daily.

“She didn’t want to take a bath so my wife cleaned her body
by wet towels and changed clothes for her. In the last two years, she has
refused to be cleaned by wet towels but she is not smelly,” Sau said.

On March 7, the pagoda’s chief monk told VietNamNet that
Hong was very weak so she was brought to a hospital in Da Nang city.
