    BE WARNED! The Video You Are About To Watch Is Very Disturbing. Depressing Indeed.

    This sad story is of a Chinese toddler, Yue Yue, who was run over by two cars on Wednesday this week, and was ignored by 18 passerby. Comments from some people who seem to be knowledgeable about the society in China say they can understand why the 18 passerby didn't stop to help the helpless toddler because of fear of being sued for helping a victim.

    The spirit of "Good Samaritan" is does not work there. Most of the blame is directed to the Chinese government for not doing enough to protect the "Good Samaritans" who are faced with charges related to their acts of humanity.




    Yueyue, the toddler that sparked an outpouring of sympathy across China and the world this week, passed away this morning at 12:32am. The incredibly sad news was announced by a briefing at the hospital at 8:30am this morning. Yueyue was treated for seven days and nights in intensive care, but despite the best medical treatment available, she simply could not survive her injuries.

    The hospital states that although they used the best-available resources from military and civilian experts, her injuries were simply too severe. The major cause of death was brain failure, which caused her major organs to shut down. The hospital "deeply regrets the loss, but thanks everyone for their concern and attention."

    Our thoughts are with Yueyue's family as they deal with their loss. Outcry over the shocking display of heartless apathy in the double hit-and-run last week will undoubtedly continue as news of Yueyue's death reverberates throughout China.

    We'll leave you with this, from an editorial published in ifeng: "This little angel belongs in paradise not in a cold world, right now she will be happy and blessed. She came to this world, let us remember her name, Wang Yue. All the best."


    Yueyue won't be forgotten. Write your RIP messages here.

    UPDATE: Yueyue's parents engage lawyer to sue drivers.

    Yue-Yue Road Death: Now Knocked Down Boy Is Reversed Over By Truck

    In another shocking example of China's brutal roads, a young boy who was knocked down was then reversed over to make sure he was dead, it has been claimed.

    Five-year-old Xiong Maoke was on his way home from nursery school in Luzhou, western China when the lorry first ran him over.

    The driver is then alleged to have reversed back over the youngster because he feared being lumbered with expensive hospital bills if Xiong survived.

    It comes just over a week after two-year-old toddler Yue Yue was run over twice after passers-by failed to help her. The girl later died.

    With no National Health Service in China many of its poorer inhabitants, especially in rural areas, need medical compensation to survive accidents.

    According to a witness, the first thing the driver asked the mother was “How much shall I pay?”
    Witness Zhang Shifen said: ‘I saw the truck move back a little and then move forward again. Xiong became wrapped up in the wheel and the truck continued forward another ten yards.’

    However Chinese officials have denied that the truck reversed to make sure the child was killed.

    Although the boy’s body lay underneath the truck for hours, leaving the heartbroken mother sitting on a stool by the wheel under which her son was crushed, officials said this was because angry villagers were demanding immediate compensation from the driver.

    The argument over how much to pay lasted over seven hours. The 35-year-old truck driver Ao Yong denied trying to kill the boy and both Police and officials have said that Xiong died on impact.
