What could be the reason why people would ignore a child – victim of a hit-and-run – bleeding on the side of the road and left to die? I don’t have any answers but the video is so troubling, I didn’t even want to ruin my Monday when I saw this on Gawker yesterday.
The 2-year old girl was hit by a van, and without even completely stopping – proceeded to leave hitting the girl again with the van’s rear wheels. If you watch the video, a total of 17 passersby ignored and walked around the child. Is this what the world has come to?
People are so afraid to help other people now because they are afraid of being sued or blamed for the incident that they would leave a child to die in the middle of the street just so they could avoid being dragged into the situation.
People who’ve seen the video (I haven’t) were outraged. But what can we do? If you have the stomach for it, here’s the link to the video. I don’t want to see it. It may drive me insane.
The girl (Yueyue)survived this horrific accident and is currently in intensive care.
The one good samaritan who helped have been located and her name is Chen Xianmei. Bravo Chen!!!!
