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.

The wife of the Deputy Director of a local Health and Family Planning Department, Li Yanzhu, went into hospital on 8th Oct. around 5pm, as the heart beat of the baby was irregular. Soon after the mother was given anesthesia by a physician, the baby's heart stopped, and it was stillborn.

The coroner's report has not been prepared but the next morning dozens of people ran into hospital and attacked doctors and nursing staff in the operating theatres.

The Health and Family Planning department oversees the one child policy and millions of babies have been killed under its control.

The baby's father, Deputy Director of Health  and Family Planning, chose to initiate "physical combat" with the  hospital. Chinese bloggers are watching with interest.
