Two people have been arrested for the hit-and-run death of Wang Yue, the Chinese two-year-old left to die in the street. No word on what the formal charges are; police used the now-infamous surveillance footage to identify the suspects. As much as we dislike how camera'ed up and Big Brothery our public spaces have become, we're glad this particular incident was captured on video. [Washington Post]
Her name was Wang Yueyue. She was run over—twice—in a crowded market in Fushan, China, last week as at least 17 passersby drove, walked, and bicycled by without lifting a finger to help her for almost ten minutes. Chinese officials announced today that she has died of her injuries, just as those 17 people intended.
Last week, a two-year-old girl wandering in the street in a market in Foshan, China, was hit by a van. The driver stopped for a moment and continued on, rolling over the girl again with the van's rear wheels. Over the course of the next seven minutes, as she lay in the street bleeding, 17 passersby walked over and around her—one truck ran over her again—without helping.
