(ECNS) -- A young couple was arrested Saturday on suspicion of trafficking their baby boy at a children's hospital in Fuzhou, Fujian province, according to the Southeast Express.

The boy's father, nicknamed Abin, posted an ad online offering his one-month-old son for 40,000 yuan (US$6,568). The post was brought to the attention of a volunteer named Zaizai, who is committed to fighting child trafficking.

Zaizai pretended to be a buyer and made a deal with Abin, then reported the time and location of the transaction to local police.

After being apprehended, Abin asked, "I'm selling my own baby. Is that illegal?"

Abin said he had three children, but that his income is only about two to three thousand yuan per month. "I had intended to put him up for adoption, but didn't know how."
