A video shared widely in China showing a woman getting knocked down by a car and then hit by another about a minute later after passers-by ignored her plight has reignited debate over Chinese people’s indifference towards helping those in need.
Surveillance footage of the accident in Zhumadian in Henan province was posted on social media on Wednesday. The woman died from her injuries after the incident in late April.
The footage shows the woman crossing the road when she was hit by a taxi.
She fell to the ground and lay there motionless for more than a minute as about 30 passers-by, motorcyclists and drivers went past.
Some slowed down to take a closer look, but no one approached her to help.
More than a minute later, a passing four-wheel drive vehicle ran over the woman, before the car came to a halt, the video shows.
