Chinese driver on trial over toddler left to die


BEIJING—State media in China say a trial has begun for a man accused of driving a minivan that ran over a toddler on a busy street. The case sparked outrage after the little girl was ignored as she lay dying on the road.

The official Xinhua News Agency reported Friday that Hu Jun was charged with the wrongful death of two-year-old Wang Yue in the southern city of Foshan

Video footage shows the van striking the toddler and then resuming driving, rolling its back right wheel over her.

Over the next seven minutes, 18 people walked or cycled by the child. Another van struck her before a scrap picker scooped her up as the girl’s mother came looking for her.

The child died a week later, but the incident caused soul searching among Chinese over declining morality.

    Pare-parehas lang… Whether chinese, americans o kahit Pinoy pa.. May hayop talagang mga tao. But I disagree grouping the whole Nationality for one’s wrongdoing.. It’s as if you’re saying, “lahat ng chinese o lahat ng kano o lahat ng Pilipino ganun o ganyan!”

      i agree. on the other hand, may strange sa behavior nong mga taong nakakita. I don’t think mangyayari yang ganyang insensitivity dito sa Pilipinas o kahit sa America. Nakakapagtaka lang na ang response nila ay pare-pareho na deadma lang at walang pakialam. May isang nagmagandang loob pero hinila lang na parang basura yong bata.

      In the Philippines, drivers tend to escape during accidents like that. Takot sa gastos at responsibility. Pero ang mga taong nakakita, hindi kaylaman aakto ng ganon ka strange sa ginawa ng mga Chinese sa video.

      The most disturbing thought for me is it’s something in their collective consciousness already that’s why they had that uniform response.
