Not joking. Video is posted on the murder of the child. Ran over twice and it took 18 people who just passed by her body to care. If you feel you can not handle watching this. DONT.


Synopsis: October 13th afternoon around 5:30, a car accident occurred at the Guangfo Hardware Market in Huangqi of Foshan. A van hit a 2-year-old little girl and then fled. No passersby reached out to help and then another car ran over her. Over the span of 7 minutes, a total of 17 people passing by failed to extend a hand or call the police, up until the 19th person, a garbage scavenger ayi [older woman], who lifted her up after discovering her but the little girl in her arms was like a noodle, immediately collapsing back onto the ground. The trash scavenger ayi called for help, and the little girl’s mother, who was in the vicinity, immediately rushed over and rushed her to the hospital.


The girl was in a coma for about two days and died today.

Fucking assholes.

That is fucking disgusting. Who the hell treats other people this way, and how can 18 people and two truck drivers not think for a second that maybe something is wrong!? These people should be hunted down and arrested at least.

That video didn't make me sick, it made me angry. Un-fucking-believable.

As disturbing as this is, one of the (translated) Chinese comments posted along with the article raises an important point:

It isn’t ignoring, it’s not daring. If one were to encounter a Nanjing judge, one would be screwed.

[Note: "Nanjing judge" refers to the infamous 2006 case of a man named Peng Yu who helped a woman to the hospital after she had fallen only to have the old woman accuse him of knocking her down. The Nanjing judge in that case ultimately ruled that common sense dictated that only the person who hit her would take her to the hospital, setting a precedent that continues only further discourages and reinforces many Chinese people's wariness to help others in similar situations.]

Therefore, it isn't as simple as labeling the first 18 bystanders as heartless. It's likely that many of them just didn't want to risk being punished for their good deeds when it was, unfortunately, a real threat. As ugly as it sounds, these people were acting normally, so they can't really be blamed for not wanting to get involved.

With that said, though, the driver of the first car and, to a lesser extent, the driver of the second car should have payed much more attention and should have known better than to simply drive off after they were already directly involved, so neither of them have my sympathy.

I can't agree with that. Who doesn't do an intrinsically good act for fear of punishment? I wouldn't care what rules are in place; if I see a dying kid on the road, I'll help her. I wouldn't think of the consequences, I'd DO it.

I wouldn't.



The thing that does sicken me, even after reading the full thing is that no-one even called an ambulance.

It's one call, you can do that much.

Keep in mind, Chinese society is very different when compared to most of the world. While your beliefs make sense in the context of your culture, Chinese culture isn't so simple.

Although many Chinese citizens share your beliefs, many others, most likely influenced by the thousands of years that Confucianism has been prevalent in Chinese culture, hold on to the notion that common people should keep to themselves and not get involved in the affairs of others.

Combining that traditional belief with the aforementioned well-known court case makes this situation understandable, even if it is a terrible display of human nature.

Honestly, you can say that you would help all you want, but humans are more selfish. This kind of thing has happened in the US before with similar results; even I passed by two people who were laying haphazardly on the sidewalk in uniform, not sure if I should stop and call someone or just continue; I didn't care to call any officials and just went on with my day.

Even look at Black Friday, where there really is no desire for anybody to act rationally, and the flood of people happily tramples over those who fall behind and get stomped on.


It is sad, but something that is not too surprising. The Chinese law there makes it even more understandable.

I was ran off the road about two years ago. Flipped six times. The fucker kept going, and they barely even tried to find him even though someone ID'd the car.

Point being, this doesn't just happen in China, much like Xk is saying. This is horribly fucked up, but unfortunately that's just how people work. You figure at least all of those people must have thought at least SOMEBODY must have called for help, so they didn't. That's a natural response, plus the over-all fear as well. I'm not justifying this in any manner, it's fucked up, but that's just what happens when people assume under the pretense of fear

Um, really guys?

This has happened here, as well. And we don't even have an excuse, we have good Samaritan laws here! I've heard all sorts of sickening accusations toward the Chinese "godless devils", "immoral society", etc... but really, it's like that everywhere, and the lack of a good Samaritan law in China helps explain why people would be fearful of trying to help her (to further prove this, the woman who did help her at the end got accused of doing it for the fame as national news people went to her hometown to try to interview her)

I see where you are coming from. And sadly, you are kinda right. The only difference is that people are different. And I guess givin the situation people can carelessly stroll past someone. In their heads; they could just be some drunk asshole passed out on the sidewalk. But when -we know- that the person was dead. It's really a two faced situation.

And again, you are right about this


Honestly, you can say that you would help all you want, but humans are more selfish.


Which is something that humanity needs to change.

But running over that girl is like...how in the hell did you not see her? Not to mention FEEL that. When you vehicle tilts to the side enough to where your sitting balance is kinda awkward on a road. You should probably feel inclined to, oh I dunno, STOP AND SEE WHAT THE FUCK THAT WAS

If you hit someone, you're liable. They're not going to liikely stay since it's either the person's life or years in prison. The person would obviously choose no years in prison.

That can be a bit different though - in the midst of a stampede like that, you can't stop to help someone. People are pushing you ahead. If you do manage to stop, you'll be trampled by people who can't stop because they are being pushed.

Of course, such things shouldn't happen in the first place.

As a furthermore to what I last said: Apple store employees hear slaying next door, did nothing

I realize nobody here has been directly attacking the collective Chinese people for that incident, but I've heard it come and go so many times now it's gotten me sick over the hypocrisy.
