This is the follow-up of the most broadcasted toddler accident case in Southern China city. (Read the related article posted on this blog on 19 October 2011).
The following CCTV captured picture clearly showed the van was charging at the toddler (just seconds before she was knocked down). Another picture showed one of the 18 passes-by who deliberately ignored the injured toddler lying on the ground!!!
Each time when such immoral cases happened in China, the public media would criticized the society as a whole. However, after a while everyone will forget and such things happen again and again… but in different forms. Such as, poisoned food, poisoned milk powder, hit & run (by vehicle), etc. etc. So the question is, will the (mainland Chinese) society change for the better? Apparently all good stuff of the Chinese long-lasting culture was completely destroyed in the infamous Cultural revolution.

Interesting News Extracts (China)
Is China's moral structure collapsing?
A 2 years old girl on a street was knocked down by a van in Guangzhou city, China. But instead of stopping the vehicle to check, the van driver just drove off. His reason for doing so was “Of course i had to run off, after knocking down someone…”! Then another truck drove pass the place and again, went over the injured girl! As if nothing had happened.
Worse still, with the poor little girl lying half-dead on the street in bright day light, at least 18 passes-by pretended that they didn’t see her! These people just walked past the injured girl without showing any concern. The whole tragedy was captured by a CCTV camera high up on the street corner. Finally an old lady who was on her round (rubbish picker) saw the girl and pulled her to the side of the street and shouted for help. When the stunning scene was shown on the news TV, the whole country turned concern.
Is this the China we already knew?
