An incident involving a nurse dressed in short pants providing first aid to a male patient has triggered controversy in Thailand.
Discussions have now blown over to Chinese social media: “Did you expect her to change clothes first?”, some netizens wonder.
Footage of a woman wearing a t-shirt and very short pants while providing immediate cardiac massage to a man on a stretcher is going viral on Chinese social media.
The woman, who is a nurse by the name of ‘Puliya’, recently triggered controversy for “looking vulgar.”
The patient reportedly lost consciousness and suffered acute cardiac problems in a Bangkok neighborhood on February 21st. He was urgently brought to the ambulance by first aid workers when the woman got up on the stretcher to provide heart massage to rescue him.
But instead of praise, the woman received criticism for her “obscene” clothing and posture while giving first aid. Various bloggers in Thailand and China first started posting about the incident on February 23.
According to popular Chinese blog site mop.com, Puliya publicly apologized soon after the incident, and said that she did not consider her clothing or posture at that moment as she was only thinking about rescuing the man.
The man whose life the nurse tried to rescue unfortunately passed away.
On Weibo, one person received nearly 10,000 likes for commenting: “She is trying to save someone’s life, yet all you can think of is sex!”
“Did you expect her to go home and change her clothing first?”, another netizen commented.
In a NetEase column on the incident, one reporter wrote on March 5: “If someone did something wrong, they should apologize, but there are some ‘apologies’ that should only make the receivers feel ashamed.”
“For the people who are criticizing this nurse now, I hope that when you end up on a stretcher needing help, the woman providing first aid will go home first to change clothes and have a cup of tea before she comes back to ‘elegantly’ come rescue you,” another Weibo blogger said. – Whatsonweibo.com
