Foshan, Guangdong Province, China - On October 13 at around 5:26 p.m., a 2-year-old girl walked along a Foshan market alleyway when she was struck by a white van. The driver of the van in the hit-and-run incident didn't even stop to help the child. Numerous people walked by moments after the incident, drove by in motor scooters, others rode bicycles and didn't stop to help the injured girl laying on the street.
A second vehicle also ran over the child and kept on going. The whole incident was captured by a market store surveillance video camera. The people captured on the video showed no emotions, they didn't care or didn't wanted to get involved.
After more than seven minutes, Chen Xianmei, 57, a woman collecting rags noticed Wang Yue, 2, the injured child on the alleyway and moved her to the side. She went to nearby stores and asked the owners for help and information about the child. They told her to mind her own business.
Yue was actually hurt near her father's hardware store, according to authorities.
Qu Feifei, the mother of the child finally came over and picked her up. Yue had emergency surgery at a local hospital and then was taken to a military hospital in Guangzhou for further medical treatment. The child remains in critical condition.
The video went viral on Youtube. People in China and from around the world have shown disgust towards the Foshan market pedestrians for their lack of human compassion and for not helping Yue in a tragic accident.
