When An Elderly Man Falls In China

On 26th Nov. 2013, an elderly man fell while crossing the street in Jinghua, China.

A few passersby stopped their bikes and formed a circle to prevent other riders hitting the man. The man tried to stand up by himself, but failed. People stood around looking at each other, but no one dared to help the old man stand up. They called police and ambulance, and after examination. it was found that the elderly man had no serious injuries.

Some Chinese are loath to give assistance because of incidents like the one below:

Earlier this month, two high school students helped an elderly man up from his fallen bicycle, but the man accused the two students of knocking him down and demanded they pay for his medical expenses. The parents of the students paid 1200 yuan ($200). These two students then posted an online request for witnesses. A shop owner and some customers who saw the fall went to the police to give evidence. The old man had to return the money to the two students.

With all the interest in China's performance at the London 2012 Olympics, distressing photos have emerged on Chinese blogs and forums of the way in which many children are forced to train by the state.

Every time a Chinese athlete does well in international competition, it "adds powder" to the face of the Chinese Communist regime, so apparently, brutalizing young children is an acceptable price to pay.

Many Chinese netizens were horrified by the photos, although some had experience of being pressured by the regime to allow their own children to join the 'elite' training squads in gymnastics, particularly.
