Does anyone remember Wang Yue? (not for faint of heart)

This story still sticks with me because it was just so avoidable.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Wang_Yue


Wang Yue (Chinese: 王悦; pinyin: Wng Yu), also known as "Little Yue Yue" (Chinese: 小悅悅, was a two-year-old Chinese girl who was run over by two vehicles on the afternoon of 13 October 2011 in a narrow road in Foshan, Guangdong. As she lay bleeding on the road for more than seven minutes, at least 18 passers-by skirted around her body, ignoring her. She was eventually helped by a female rubbish scavenger and sent to a hospital for treatment, but succumbed to her injuries and died eight days later. The closed-circuit television recording of the incident was uploaded onto the Internet, and quickly stirred widespread reaction in China and overseas. Many commentators saw this as indicative of a growing apathy in contemporary Chinese society.

*warning! it's hard to watch, even harder to watch nobody do a thing to help her.

1. Oh my God

I can't watch the video. Just the description sent me into a spin.

Love to her spirit. Forgiveness for our species.

2. I do because it was around the time when a spate of incidents happened

The Yao Xian case was the one I remember most. He hit a bicycist then stabbed her to death. (edited because I couldn't remember his name. Had to look it up)
2008 Zhao Xiao Cheng who hit a 64 year old woman and then back up over her again
The BMW ran over a little girl, backed up over her and then hit her a third time
The rich guy in Xinyi who ran over the boy a couple of times backing out of a parking space

There have been a lot of these stories.
The way Chinese law works, financially you're better off killing someone, then injuring them
