Arguing Henan Couple Throws Infant Into River Where It Drowned

On October 2nd at 7:00am, on Ruyang County Xinda bridge, a young couple were arguing and in a moment of anger threw their less than one year old baby into the river. Then in regret they called the police for help. The Ruyang County Fire Squad rushed to the scene upon hearing and through nearly eight minutes of emergency rescue efforts, the baby was successfully rescued [out of river], but through 120 [Chinese emergency medical help number] emergency workers’ diagnosis, the child already showed no signs of life.

Husband and Wife Whose Quarrel Caused Baby’s Drowning Arrested; Police Investigating Whether Baby Was Intentionally Thrown

Beijing Times (microblog) report — Yesterday [October 2nd] morning at 7:00, on the Xinda Bridge in Ruyang County of Henan Province, when a quarreling couple came to pushing and pulling, their son fell into the river and died. At present, this couple has been criminally detained by the police, and the case is under further investigation.

The incident was reported by the baby’s mother. The police officer dispatched described the Xinda Bridge where the incident occurred as over one kilometer away from Ruyang County, and the incident occurring around 7am. When the police arrived on the scene, only the woman who made the call was at the scene. “She looked frightened, and couldn’t speak clearly, only able to say that the child was under the bridge.” As for the father’s whereabouts, the dispatched police indicated “She said he went home to go driving”.

As it is understood, the surface of the bridge where the incident happened is about 4 meters’ above river surface, and the river under the bridge has deep and shallow areas with stones and rocks visible in the shallow places. The firefighters who arrived just a few minutes after getting the call immediately launched a rescue and within minutes found the baby and carried him out of the water. But on-site first-aid personnel confirmed that the baby was no longer alive.

Rescue workers trying to save a Chinese baby that was either thrown off or accidentally dropped from a bridge in Henan.

According to insiders, the police’s preliminary investigation revealed that the couple are from Yima city of Henan province and work in Ruyang county. Because the coupled fought the night before over a household dispute, yesterday morning the wife Shi XX took the child planning to return to her parent’s home. The husband Fu XX chased after her and the two people had another fight at the scene of the incident. During the pushing and pulling, the baby fell over into the river and Fu XX left the scene. After Shi XX called the police, local police quickly organized the rescue, and at the same time deployed police to set up a roadblock at a nearby intersection to stop Fu XX. Currently, the couple have both been detained by the police, with there being inconsistencies between the two testimonies, so the police are currently conducting further investigation.

According to Ruyang county propaganda department staff, regarding how the incident unfolded, the testimonies of the two are inconsistent, with “the man said the baby accidentally fell into the river when they were fighting, while the woman said the man deliberately threw the baby into the river. The Public Security Bureau is currently investigating, and currently the two have already been detained for investigation. The staff revealed that the place where the incident occurred has little traffic, and so far no other witnesses have been found, but the police are still investigating.

Yesterday afternoon a little past 6pm, Ruyang officials reported this incident. According to the report, the man Fu XX is 34 years old and the woman Shi XX is 24 years old.

Information on the internet claims the infant boy was less than a year old but police have not commented on this.

Worse than pigs and dogs! Go [die] together with your child!

Outrageous! Even if the baby was not your own, there is no reason to go this far! This world is too out of control!

Do not exclude this possibility, maybe the man suspected the baby was not his.

Must be punished severely. How difficult it is for a baby to come into this world!

网易奥地利手机网友 ip:194.166.*.*:

The hurting of children happens in every country in the world. But in other countries, it happens only once every few years or decades. Only in this country does it occur almost every day. Why are even children not spared? I can only say that this nation/people have become so perverse/deviant that no words can describe it anymore.

网易安徽省手机网友 ip:117.136.*.*:

If it was me, I would’ve jumped into the river to save [the baby]. Their child was right there and could be seen yet they still didn’t go save it, and the water was even shallow.

网易重庆市手机网友 ip:123.147.*.*:

They obviously rashly threw the child into the river out of anger. It’s intentional homicide. Should be sentenced to death.

网易海南省海口市手机网友 ip:113.59.*.*:

Looking at the picture, the river isn’t deep. So the mother could’ve quickly gone to rescue [the baby], and if the mother immediately went to save him, there would be hope for survival.

时尚的小二 [网易天津市手机网友]:

How difficult it is nowadays for children to grow up healthily, safely, and without incident! As a father, I really can’t bear to look at the picture of the baby floating on the river!

    How come Chinese lose all senses when arguing? One doesn’t simply let his kid fall down into a river from a bridge. As long as it wasn’t intentional…

    • ‘ or fuck=off

      I know, they never had any senses to begin with.

  • Ballzn

    I pity any child living in this country with the worst parents on the planet, I have never seen such abuse and neglect of children anywhere in my life, these two should get public hanging.

    • Nessquick Choco

      Here they are called parrents only because its writen in the family tree book, or babys born certificate. usually. Some people sure are good parents and care for baby well, and by themself.
      My wife get fed up with the daily questions of eldrely neighbours, when they see her send our son to kindergarden : “You send him by yourself ? ? ” which also means ” why dont you hire me for that and you can have a rest at work ” in theirs mind…

  • Turd Ferguson

    Sigh…. just another day in China. Land of 1.4 billion uncivilized stories.

  • The Enlightened One

    I would think that as a parent (and I am not one yet) that your first fucking instincts would be to dive into the river (which this one AGAIN does not look very dangerous) and save the child if they fell in rather than calling the police and WAITING for them to arrive and help you.

    Of course you kid is going to be dead by then!

    Or you could be a man and “go home to go driving” after your baby accidentally fell in the river…

    WHAT ON EARTH?! You can’t make this shit up… these people are seriously screwed up.

    • Probotector

      Most Chinese people can’t swim.

      • The Enlightened One

        I can appreciate that, but if my child fell into the river… you better bet I am going to learn damn fast or at least try.

        I mean isn’t it parental instinct to at least try? I sure as hell wouldn’t “go home for a drive” lol.

        • Probotector

          So would I. I’m just sayin’ is all.

          • The Enlightened One

            Actually, most people born in Asia can’t swim (or a very sizeable number). As I mentioned before, I went on a trip to the Philippines and there were clearly two groups of tourists on the boats…

            The people from North America, Australia and Europe on one side… and people from Asia (Filipinos, Chinese, Malaysians, etc.) on the other… guess which group all had orange life jackets on and which didn’t… haha.

          • Zhongtanlu

            I think the westerners had the life jackets ‘cos the asians dont give a rat’s ass about personal safety ;)

          • Nessquick Choco

            no, we have swimming lessons from 1st grade of primary school :-)

          • Peter Pottinger

            how can u not swim its the easiest thing in the world

          • Nessquick Choco

            of course I can :-)

          • Warlock

            I’m of the opinion only dogs and fish should swim. Human goes into river, drowns, big dog is found alive and well but tired downstream, happens every time. Humans should steer clear of rivers and other stupid places if they cannot swim, or at least are not strong swimmers.

          • linette lee

            Which country is that? In USA I am pretty sure they don’t have swimming classes for kids. The parents have to pay out of the pocket for swimming lessons mostly indoor swimming pool.

            It would be nice if all public schools in usA or China have swimming as part of the physical education. It’s very useful to be good swimmer. Why can’t public schools teach useful things to kids instead of waste time teaching useless things in life?

            Like teach kids foreign language, music like vocal or instruments, art like painting or drawing, and swimming. Their music class is just some theory and some singing. Their painting class is more like telling you paint whatever you want. Gym is just tell you to run around. That is not teaching.

          • David

            When I went to school in America (in the 70’s) it was common for schools to have a swimming pool and to include swimming as part of physical education. Of course I lived in Chicago so there was no ocean near by but I think as more and more schools were built in the 80’s and 90’s pools were excluded from most public schools because of the cost of maintenance.

          • linette lee

            Isn’t that sad? And swimming is something everyone should know. If I am the broad of education I will make school five hours a day and one hour homework for all kids all the way up to high school. Let them go play and do sports or things they enjoy in life. The primary school all they need is language reading writing literature. One foreign language, Math, and lunch. Then three times a week science and history. Twice a week music, art, and physical education. Computer and typing class are good too. And that’s it. No more. no more….ok lol.

          • Nessquick Choco

            This was my primary school schedule. once a week , mostly tuesday, we finish school at 2:30pm, other day at 12:40. fridays sometimes 11:45. It was till end of my High school too, very similar schedule. minimu homework, mostly done within 20 minutes. and max 2-3 times per week.

          • Nessquick Choco

            We did not have in every school, but every bigger town, city have at least one swimming pool. City was the owner, and visitors paid. schools got very nice discounts, just paid the David Haselhof job for our 2hrs :)

          • Nessquick Choco

            It was in Czech rep.
            I am not sure, if they still have it, but in my young time, almost 30years ago, it was included in sport classes and also an indoor pool. I know my parrents paid a bit, but really a bit for that. and very likely we went also at wekends in a winter time by ourself.

          • Rick in China

            I was going to say the same. The asians were probably too concerned with their fake white versace getting wrinkled to wear an ugly orange life jacket.

          • Warlock

            Or it might have interfered with the woman holding their LV or Chanel bag>?

          • The Enlightened One

            You would be wrong.

            Actually, all the Asians had on life jackets because they were scared to death of the water (Chinese included). The Westerners didn’t because they are were extremely confident with their swimming skills. Jump right off a boat in the middle of the ocean and swim like a fish.

            Some of the local sailors were the same (swam like fish).

            My wife (who I taught to swim but still fears deep water) was wearing one as well laughingly told me that she would save me if I was drowning. She was worried that while we were swimming I would get tired and drown.

            I just have 0 fear for water. I feel very comfortable while swimming. I think most Westerners would say the same?

          • Warlock

            I just have 0 fear for water

            I used to except when nearly drowning in a storm drain. Then no amount of swimming will help you out, alas!

          • x1sfg

            Most Westerners can swim? Before my time in service, I was a lifeguard. You’re deslusional.

            Most Westerners who vacation in the PI are probably more better off than the Chinese, Malays who vacation there, like how Americans vacationing in Tahiti are richer than Americans vacationing in South Beach, FL. People with more money usually swim more than someone from rural China. Go to Hicksville, Tennessee, Omaha, Nebraska, and other landlocked places or some hood rat in a major metropolis in the US and you’ll probably find the same number of people who can’t swim.

            Vacation in Hawaii. The Asian tourists there seem to do well.

            Congratulations, you can swim. I know one person who without a doubt can swim better than you and we lost him 13 years ago. Keep up your false bravado though. Way to tell everyone you’re a masculine, even with your flabby arms.

          • The Enlightened One

            “Most Westerners can swim? Before my time in service, I was a lifeguard. You’re deslusional.”

            Oh okay, I guess I am delusional then. I didn’t see bright orange jackets and struggling swimmers! My bad!

            No, not true. Many of the Chinese that go the PI are probably richer than the Westerners or around the same economic level for their respective countries.

            Thanks for the lesson on the U.S., don’t care… I live in Asia.

            Why would I care if some dead guy 13 years ago could swim better than me lol?

            I am going by my first hand experiences. You can argue that all you want, but I saw what I saw. Did I hurt your feelings or something?

          • Alexander

            Actually in those places you called “hicksville” people swim in the rivers and lakes there…. Just because they don’t have an ocean doesn’t mean they don’t go swimming. You should see the people who catch giant catfish using their arms.

          • x1sfg

            Um, most Japanese, Koreans, and Thai would disagree with your stupid generalization right there.

            If I were to wear a life jacket on a boat, you’ll assume it’s because I can’t swim? Or if a group actually followed safety instructions or took extra precautions, it’s because of lack of swimming ability?

            I guess the USCG SAR’s and USAF PJs can’t swim. I guess I nor anybody on my team couldn’t swim in our 500+ swims/dives because we had CO2 vests.

            Wow, just wow. Your lack of intelligence is astonishing.

          • The Enlightened One

            No, I didn’t assume. I saw them struggling to swim. I wouldn’t assume that… many of them would admit they couldn’t swim well or at least lacked the confidence in their abilities.

            I said most (or at leaste a sizable number)… I didn’t say all. Of course I expect the special forces to be able to swim… BORING! Exit inferiority complex please!

          • linette lee

            Nice photo. :)

          • The Enlightened One

            Thank you Linette, felt like it was time for a change… Something a little calmer that didn’t attract the wrath of so many insecure anon men haha.

            BTW – Linette are you in the U.S. or H.K.?

          • linette lee

            In USA. You are in Shanghai?

          • The Enlightened One

            Nope, closer to Xian at the moment. I thought you lived in Hong Kong or are you just from HK?

          • linette lee

            I was born there and grew up there. I moved to USA during high school years for college later.

          • The Enlightened One

            Ah I see, you didn’t want to return to HK? I don’t know but I think I would prefer to live in HK than most parts of the U.S.

            I guess it would depend on which part.

          • linette lee

            Usa is cheaper to live. Bigger place and more nature. More places to see. Hk is too crowded and too fast paced.

          • Warlock

            Hk is too crowded and too fast paced.

            Damn right, and I know a few hong kongers who prefer living in rural areas of guangdong with cheaper living and slower pace of life. Still near enough to HK, but so much easier to live.

          • Warlock

            Insecure? No dear boy, just you did look very like him in that photo. You explained about your wife, all is well. As for the OP, he has yet to pipe up. I doff my hat to you, dear boy.

      • 永坚 梅

    • Zappa Frank

      maybe as parent your first instinct should be to protect your child and do anything in order to do not let him fall down..even while you’re quarreling with your partner…

    • TJDubs

      If the baby had survived, it could have sued the parents afterward, claiming it was their fault. It was wise of the parents not to get involved in any rescue efforts.

      • Guest

        No the parents are going to sue themselves,…

    • Guest

      Most Chinese people value their own lives more than anything, except for money.

      • Mony Xie

        I doubt that. IMO most Chinese people value money more than anything, except for their lives.

        • Rick in China

          I would argue many are so ignorant and ridiculously lacking of any basic common sense or rationalisation skills that they would have a hard time evaluating a situation and determining any difference between LIFE or MONEY, so I suppose, both statements are accurate.

            Agent smith would have to be my favourite villan.

    • chandlerpatrick

      I’m a father of one, and one on the way, and yes, that would be the first thing I did. Once you have children, you put your own safety after theirs.

    • A man recently did so for his pet dog in Beijing and drowned. Yet netizens made fun of him. I make fun of them. A man who actually knew what it meant to love and put his personal needs to the side in favour of assisting others (in this case the dog that survived as they can swim anyway) first.

    • Waaaay back in 2000 when I was still a student a UIBE near Fuxingmen, I had an English corner thing once a week. One student when asked about who to save first, wife or son, was wife, because then he can always “make another son”. No concept of triage entered his head at all and priority of need.

      • bjgirl

        UIBE is NOT near Fuxingmen.
        I think you got it wrong.

        And yes, the Chinese has no concept of triage

    • SonofSpermcube

      I think if you jumped off the bridge shown, you’d break your legs and/or die. The baby might have survived the initial impact, maybe, but an adult ain’t walking away from that.

      • anon101

        it said it happened at an area of the bridge that was 3m above the water level

    • Repatriated

      I can’t help but wonder how a baby just “falls” over a 3′ concrete wall into a river…

    • jixiang

      I do suppose the guy hadn’t just gone home to “go driving.” Perhaps he had intentionally thrown the baby in the water and then fled the scene or something.

  • Probotector

    I wouldn’t normally talk about personal things on a public BBS, because it’s retarded, but it’s relevant to this story. My girlfriend here in China is pregnant with our first kid (that’s right, girlfriend not wife – shock – horror -) and I am petrified to raise it here in China, when I see this kind of thing going on, and how they raise or rather don’t raise their children in this country. The lack of respect for human life is staggering and truly chilling. I won’t be sleeping well tonight.

    • 剑胆琴心

      talks like most chinese babies die early…
      if your not ready then control your thing well…

      • Probotector

        I never said I wasn’t ready, I just said I’m concerned about Chinese being shitty parents. btw many babies do die in China, it’s called female infanticide, so you should feel lucky to be alive.

        • The Enlightened One

          The man has a point. I have heard of countless stories of female babies being thrown into rivers, ditches and sold into various organized crime rings for prostitution, organ harvesting, begging for money and other dark things a normal person’s mind couldn’t even begin to concieve… And that’s if they could even make it out of the womb. There is a REASON why doctors are not allowed to tell the parents the gender of the child before it is born…

          • linette lee

            I don’t understand why if you white folks have the choice, why would you want to raise your kids inside China????
            Enlighten me. Why not move to Taiwan or Singapore or USA or Canada. Why??? Maybe because you have good jobs inside China and don’t want to leave. But it’s not going to be easy for a child being raised in China society. China is still developing do any of you have faith with the China gov’t laws and their system?
            Also it’s not easy to be raised in any East Asia society. Very strict and competitive and no mercy. And God forbid if the child has some kind of disability China is definitely not a place to be in.

          • Warlock

            Merciless Asia!!

          • Probotector

            Sometimes you’ve got no choice

          • Atlas

            My Chinese girlfriend wants to have baby(ies?), but keep telling me she will never leave China. So at this point, I feel like I should simply break up with her or get an operation so I can’t have children.

            Being in China has been my choice – a choice I would not be able to live with if my kids had to endure growing up here.

          • Gordon Gogodancer

            To be fair even though the system is shit and a lot of crappy stuff happens here, the children still seem fairly happy don’t you think? I don’t think i could raise my children in France either, what a depressing place for children.

          • Atlas

            To be honest, I cannot deny that many children are happy, but what I clearly observe is that the majority aren’t. Or they are temporarily happy: they believe the system is right, but once they hit the gaokao crunch and put everything on the line for that test and the rest of their life is decided by its outcome, you can bet most of them have their hearts broken.

            I absolutely refuse to make my kids study to get “good jobs” so they can kick this money back to me when I’m old. I’m planning for my old days to be absolutely sure my children will never feel like I gambled with their lives and planned their future to benefit myself.

            My primary goal for my children is for them to be both happy and free thinkers. I know for a fact that it is easy to live with little money when you have a positive outlook on life and your mind is not constrained by oughts.

            I don’t mind that Chinese schools are demanding. I mind that studies in education have shown countless times that studying more than 5-6 hours a day does not produce effective results and that homework is basically useless and won’t influence understanding at least until the last 2 years of high school. Sure, if you grade students on memorizing things and rote activities, then hours of homework make sense, but if you want to build a well-rounded individual with a humanistic approach to life who is able to think outside the box to solve problems and invent new solutions, then you must absolutely avoid rote learning.

            For me, raising a kid in China and sending him to a Chinese public school (even a good one) is the equivalent of murdering the potential greatness that lay within this child.

          • Caitlyn

            . . .My parents sent me to public schools (the nearest ones to my home) all the time , later I became a nut? school is important but not that important ,I think what matters is your Children’s habits which you help him/her make, family atmosphere matters more ..

          • Atlas

            Look at it this way:

            Children in China spend most of their waking hours studying or doing homework. Sounds great until you realize the metrics used to determine what is to be learned are completely useless.

            I suggest that the best way of learning, especially in the case of China, is outside the school system. Children in schools around the world, and especially in Chinese schools (although China is not alone to be guilty of this), are being SCHOOLED, not EDUCATED. They learn the process of schooling and how to work within the system, not useful life skills and behaviors.

            I agree that family matters more, but it especially for this reason that school and governments must be subordinates to the people and not the other way around like it currently is.

            Research has shown that in order to shape who you are, you need alone time or at least time you decide to spend on things you enjoy doing. I put forward that children in China (as can be demonstrated in today’s adult population who have gone more or less through the same process) simply do not have enough free time, are not encouraged to find and use free time as they please and are more likely to be punished for demonstrating interest and investing time in non-traditional learning experiences.

            You may not be a nut- by Chinese standards or international ones, but that makes you the lucky one rather than the norm.

            I’ll leave you with this quote and a question: What do Chinese schools teach? What remains if you strip this away?

            “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”

            -A. Einstein

          • hey, what you said is reasonable for me, and I also read some other paragraphs you wrote here. I am not an expert on education. I know china education sucks because I knew what it is, I was in it. I grow up in a poor countryside of central China,that means my parents couldn’t afford to buy me extra lessons beyond school. So I was kinda grow up in the fields everyday with my childhood friends.And the exercises were not much(I was born in 1987) .So the school didnt bother me until I went to high school(that means I began to move out of family and live in a dormitory ), I tried to quit school at the second year,but my parents used one whole winter night to persuade me not to. They actually didn’t persuade me theoretically, just I had to follow their words at that period,things were quite complicated. I could be say a good student(just the score ,my personality was very naughty) ,had a good score to go to the best high school in the county, but soon I got sick on study everyday.The exercise books on the desk is higher than my head! No free time at all to read books I like or think about anything else interesting, I have to spend all day long to write homework and exercises for gaokao(高考), I began to doubt what the hell am i doing?Its totally meaningless for anyone. Believe me man,God used that way(to make me realize what I really want to learn and the teachers teach was so boring) to punish me.I suffered and struggled the whole semester and at last didn’t go to a good college as my parents hoped, because I always mind-absent on the classes or read something else which is useless for gaokao. My parents must be disappointed a little while,what I cared was that it finally over.But ,yes,my time was wasted.

            About the quote of Einstein, I knew exactly what he meant. And my answer for your question is that I wont going to have a baby if I cannot give him/her a good education opportunity. Maybe it sounds naive ,but that’s the true ideas which I hold so far :P
            I didn’t stop learning after I leave school,study is a whole life thing .I feel I have learned more by myself and through good communications with others and the society.You get a lesson and you keep moving.

            Thanks for sharing your story with us. Also, you sound like a very reasonable person.

          • h4rdboil3d

            My fiances like that. They’re just afraid of foreign places. Once they visit your hometown and weigh the pros and cons they’ll understand that it’s necessary to leave this hell hole.

          • David

            Nothing against China, but I agree 100%

          • The Enlightened One

            To be honest, when I do have kids… I can appreciate them staying here until they are about 3-4 years old (if my sanity can handle that) and then I am out.

            It’s just not worth it.

          • linette lee

            like someone just mentioned foreign kid I guess especially little pretty Eurasian girls, would be a bit scary to be in China. Young Chinese girls get kidnapped and sold to those mountain villages in the middle of no where as wives. Don’t expect the China police to do anything or help.

          • h4rdboil3d

            You’re right on the money. I’d do the same.

            Education here is just too competitive let alone the depletion of clear air before we all suffocate and die.

          • Dazinshanghai

            I just had a beautiful baby daughter she is now 3 months old, I live in in Shanghai and my wife is Shanghainese. Our plan is to move back to my country Australia before our daughter starts school, so 3 or 4 years is it. I have lived in China for 8 years but i can not raise my children here.

          • Gordon Gogodancer

            I’m definitely not planning to have kids in China…or perhaps Xuhui district in Shanghai which is actually quite a comfortable place (definitely not “悠闲” Chengdu), but then again i haven’t thought about it that much. You’re asking a very complicated question…

          • Warlock

            definitely not “悠闲” Chengdu

            Careful, you might upset the canadian contingent, and we wouldn’t want that know, would we?!

          • anon101

            got a kid who is now 2 years old. as soon as mummy gets her visa. we leave..
            although on a plus side, my daughter can make more money in a day than I can (2-3000rmb for a day of photos dressed up in different clothes).

        • xuedi

          don’t explain yourself to the troll ;-)

        • 剑胆琴心

          you should talk to your gf about this problem.or ask yourself.
          your baby is own problem.do not blame the whoe society for being poor,do not blame your parents for being ugly.

          • Probotector

            wtf are you talking about? Go troll elsewhere

          • Zappa Frank

            she’s the perfect explanation why u should not riseur kids in china, they may turn out in something like her

          • Atlas

            Listen, SB.

            His problem is not being in China in itself. The problem is that being in China is a huge risk factor for problems with:

            -Health
            -Education
            -Mental Health
            -And so on.

            You have no fucking clue what it’s like being a foreigner in China, having people pointing and you and gawking all the time. What you should be able to understand though is that “halflings” growing up in China will always be discriminated against. They will never be Chinese even if they spend their whole life in China, they will become sad parodies of men and women if they go through your average Chinese public school system, only learning to be Yes men and wondering how to solve what are basically easy daily life problems in 95% of the world.

            Some parents around my area are worried about kidnapping – can you imagine how good a catch it would be for predators to get their hands on a foreign kid? Don’t let me get started on the food and general public health/sanitation.

            China: Good to make money, good enough if you’re a grown-up. Worse than Hell if you’re a kid growing up.

          • linette lee

            Not only China, basically any countries that don’t have
            anti discrimination laws DO NOT RAISE YOUR KIDS THERE. If it’s hard for adults, can you imagine for little kids? Kids are little angels and you want them to grow up in a safe and without prejudice environment. Only then they will have more love and be open minded in them.

            Discrimination happens also to the poor and the disabled. A society that do not offer equal opportunities to the poor and disabled why would you want to live there? Kids coming from poor families are not given the same access to equal public education and healthcare. They can never advance in the social ladder through education no matter how bright they are and how hard working. A poor kid smart as scientist will never have any achievement. Disabled kids are not given gov’t assistance, or gov’t programs school that teach them allow them to learn and be the best that they can be or be more independent.

            Why would anyone think it is good to raise kids in a society like that?

          • h4rdboil3d

            a little off topic here but this got me thinking about how deep discrimination runs in this society, just the other day I saw an old man picking through garbage for plastic bottles. he finds a lunchbox in those garbage cans without a trash bag, examines the leftovers inside doesn’t like what he sees and dumps the stuff back in. wth, he could have just as easily closed the box and made it convenient for the public workers. instead it stinks at the bus stop now.

            discrimination not only to foreigners but their own countrymen as well.

            also how it’s the norm to toss garbage where ever you are. kids tossing garbage near garbage cans or where ever it’s convenient and parents even encouraging this behaviour.

            I don’t want my kids growing up in this environment.

          • Nick in Beijing

            Same thing happened to my wife and I recently.

            We cleaned out some of our old clothes that we weren’t wearing anymore. We put the clothes in a couple of bags and left them on the street near our house with the word free written on the bags in Chinese. We walked out for a 15 minute walk and when we came back the bags were gone.

            Someone had hidden the bags behind a bush so other wouldn’t see it. I saw an old man who lives in my building come and collect the bags a moment later.

            Early the next morning when I went out for work, I opened the dumpster lid to throw away a bottle and found about half the clothes in the same bag. The man picked through what he wanted, and just threw away the rest instead of putting it back where he found it for others to look through.

            I know for a fact that the old man has money. He drives a decent car, the neighborhood we live in is nice, clean, quiet, and well organized (therefore expensive if you buy a house there). Yet he still scrounged up what he thought was useful and threw away the rest, rather than let others use it.

            I wouldn’t call this discrimination though. Just plain old boring selfishness.

          • haha

          • dffd

            that part where they get their hand on white foreign kids….hmmmm didnt know they were more special, is there a quota which the kidnappers have to fill?

          • Atlas

            Rare goods are worth more.

        • Guest22

          Ignoring unhelpful comments aside, good luck raising your child, hopefully both of you can get officially married. And if you can’t leave China for elsewhere, try to raise your son/daughter in a really good environment.

          • Probotector

            lol, thank you. Actually, we’ll get married next month, there’s a stigma about being knocked up out of wedlock, so her family shelled out a shit ton of money to get us married ASAP. I don’t know if it will work out raising a kid here in Henan, although I don’t live i the same place that this tragedy happened. Perhaps I’ll try a first-tier city if it doesn’t work out here.

            why shall i?
            why her family feel shamed for her?and have to give out money to get some foreigner? at least my friends they did not pay money to their husbands, now no need to work any more,still their men love them.

          • Boris

            Eattot… try, just for once, to let an article pass where you don’t get into an argument with someone. Please.

            you should ask what he wrote to me before first.
            and i m happy to know turn out just some low quality white got stuck in poor province teaching,happy to know.but i truly feel sorry for his gf. sigh!

          • Probotector

            You just said this province has the best students and university, now it’s a “poor province”.

            As for your personal attack, jeez you seriously do have issues. I feel sorry for any man who gets suckered in to a relationship with you. Here’s a clue for ya jack: money and face aren’t everything.

          • 剑胆琴心

            if i find a man can not give engage money already quite useless,let alone make my parents give out a lot of retirement saving,i would prefer to live alone.let alone take such a person home.
            at least,none of my friends married their men had to give money out,most get engaged money.if a man even can not give some money for wedding,what else you can expect in the future?

          • Probotector

            Whoever said I don’t have any money? I said her family shelled out a shit ton of money. That doesn’t mean I didn’t pay as well, nor does it mean I’m poor.

            Your attitude is what is wrong with Chinese society. You’re so judgmental and prejudiced. All you seem to care about is money, and the fickle prestige that comes with it, along with putting people down based on superficial qualities like “you’re poor” or you’re ugly” [face palm].

            You assume I irresponsibly knocked up my gf and now I have to marry her, but I am unprepared. In fact, we’ve been together for 3 years , and we only didn’t tie the knot sooner because I was bogged down with divorcing another Chinese wife I’d had in my own country. Also getting married in China, if you’re foreign, is a lot more complicated than it is for you people, which is why we haven’t done it yet.

            Now look, your argumentativeness is clearly a mark of your own insecurity and hatred of foreigners, but come on, just shut up.

            Congrats, babysteps I guess, it’s really challenging to raise kids these days, not withstanding that it’s China, a lot of stigmas and social norms that fly out of the window there and kids can be raised or influenced to be goons.

      I know three foreigners/laoweis/whitees, whatever you call them. Two of them swear they’re getting out as soon as they can. One of them loves it here. I’d follow the two. The one is a lush and I feel so much for his kid. I’m sure she could be a lovely girl, but at age 11 she’s got so much stress, no friends, and a truly bizarre family. The father’s always drunk and the mother has very questionable disciplinary tactics. The other two told me horror stories, and my heart totally bled for them.

      • Warlock

          Actually, no. British. Nice guy, until about 7pm.

      • Probotector

        What horror stories? Please elaborate.

        • Angie Mac

          These are all stories told around a table in a bar, but one particular friend had just had a situation the night before with his 8 year old and a couple of drunkards. They didn’t like the idea of a mixed child, and rather than let the father know it, they got in the face of the child.

  • lonetrey / Dan

    Indisputably a case of infanticide. There should be no reason for one of the parents to not be charged with this.

    Because if they do get off without so much as a single punishment then it should not be too far of a stretch to “have a fight” with these adults, and they’ll “accidentally slip over a bridge”.

    It’ll be alright, since by then they’ve already proven that these accidents do happen.

    • David

      Guilty people flee (i.e. husband went to go driving?). Good parents go after their child even if they can’t swim (as evidenced by the many articles here where a parent dies trying to save their child). I think this guy thinks he was cuckolded and did not want to pay child support if the wife took their son home to mother. Just a guess but this is not that unusual of a story. I agree, somebody has to be held responsible for this child’s death.

    i studied there for 4 years.i think the most selfish and snobbish ones are from zhejiang.he nan girls are very saving and honest also pure.boys look really good,most are very tall.a lot of handsome guys in camps.
    one thing bad of them is they do not take shower often,also do not know why their teeth very bad,most a bit flying out.and also like to make a lot of kids,i never knew any of my classmate is the one kid.in my village,quite a lot.

    • MrC

      you studied there? explains a lot..

      • 剑胆琴心

        explain your d…k Only!
        my uni is the best one in he nan,and the best major is chemistry.almost 100% sent to better uni for MS without test.and 1/3 can go to very good uni for MS. idiot!
        you think everyone is so dump as you. from a super population province,kids can enter uni already very excellent.

        • Probotector

          Which uni is that?

        • Probotector

          Most kids in Henan I teach are retarded and most of them failed the gaokao. In fact, I’ve never met a student here who A) liked their major and B) were actually clever enough to learn.

          • 剑胆琴心

            zheng zhou uni,best major is chemistry.kids from other province even no chance to get in.
            besides those useless majors,these good hot ones,most students study very hard for MS.

        • MrC

          Glad you cleared that up for me, I was beginning to think you was stupid.
          I talk to my “d…k” now and explain.

    • linette lee

      I am moving to Henan right now. lol…..
      But first I must give a hygiene class to all boys. lol.

      Is it true they say Chengdu Sichuan has some of the best looking chinese? They have nice skin and and are naturally pretty.
      Do a lot of them look like this?
      If a lot of them look like this my male friends want to move there. hahaha lol.

            hong kong chinese men complain Hk chinese girls are too competitive due to their high education. Everything is a competition between them.
            Or the other type of HK chinese girls are low education with princess syndrome and bxtchy.

            Although I do think the bxtchy China girls can be more bxtchy than the bxtchy Hk girls. lol…….

      • Warlock

        Not all. I’d say a lot of those girls come from other parts. Sichuan girls are actually quite short.

        i hear they are mental from there, to avoid other then a quickie.

        • Guang Xiang

          yes, actually the hot sexy sichuan girls i met were mental. one told me she eats maggots cause they are high in protein and helps bosom size

            Most Chinese culture stems from that.

        It’s true, of all the girls I met in Beijing, the Sichuan ones are the hottest with the sexiest bodies (large assets where it counts). I have a Korean American who worked there for one summer and told me he must marry one.

      • 剑胆琴心

        if go he nan, you really should go to luo yang, kai feng.

    • Warlock

      A friend of mine in Shenzhen was cheated by a he nan girl. They have a bad reputation as thieves in guangdong, and the locals often beat them, and don’t like to live near or with them. I’d agree about zhejiang people, esp the girls, being selfish and snobbish,but not all of them.

    • Gordon Gogodancer

      People just discriminate other people because they have nothing better to do and their narrow mind likes to make big generalization instead of processing information in detail: boys/girls 国内/国外 外地/本地 team 1/ team 2 cats/dogs christian/muslim etc etc etc. They believe that there is a reason in them being boy/christian/本地 etc.that justifies them “being right” but i think the truth is that they are just pathetic and like to feel stronger when they are part of a majority persecuting a minority. I’ve notice that a whole lot of people worldwide still believe that the enemy is foreign. For as long as i can remember i always thought that was an absurd idea as your someone else foreign is you…anyways..

  • Guest22

    Sad situation, condolences to the parents, but gotta ask, 1. What were they doing on that bridge? 2. What were they fighting about? Cause this is just so sad if they fought about something petty and tragically their child was a casualty on such stupid thing.

    • MrC

      she told him who the father really was…

      • Paul Schoe

        You made me Laugh Out Loud :-)

      • Gordon Gogodancer

        haha from my personal experience, and no disrespect, i’m sure there’s a whole lot of that :D

  • Ruaraidh

    Unbelievably selfish; throwing your baby in a river because you’re having a tantrum. All three of them are babies.

    It’s a shame having a baby isn’t something you have to prove yourself worthy of, rather than something you’re automatically entitled to.

  • ‘ or fuck=off

    That river sure is dirty, it probably stinks like garbage.
    Then one amature emergency physician squatting on a stone as if she’d be shitting down a hole, while another just stands around bowing like a dumb ass, surely this is china as we know it.

    • Probotector

      Yeah, why is she squatting on that stone? Couldn’t she just move it or squat next to it?

      • ‘ or fuck=off

        Why would she need to squat unless she was taking a shit? Is she not capable to kneel?

        • TJDubs

          Have you even been to China, bro?

        • MrC

          at least she didn’t have a cigarette in her mouth

      • linette lee

        She didn’t want soil on her shoes. No dirt on her uniform neither.

        • Probotector

          Is that more important than a baby’s life?

  • Probotector

    The fall alone would have killed it.

    • MrC

      not the drop kick?

  • MrC

    “The firefighters who arrived just a few minutes after getting the call”
    surely not China?

    • Paul Schoe

      Yes, it is China because the baby was considered “succesfully rescued” (小孩被成功救起) even though it was “no longer alive“.

      China the only country where even when you are already dead, you enter the statistics as being “succesfully rescued”.

      • Zappa Frank

        it seems the joke where the doctor says ” the operation was a success, unlucky the patient is dead”..

      • Probotector

        Yeah that mystified me too

      • David

        Yea, what is that all about? As though them going through the motions of their job was the most important thing. Now they can check the box on the report saying the rescue was successful.

        • Paul Schoe

          It is not “as though them going through the motions of their job was the most important thing“. That IS the most important thing for them.

          Carrying out tasks in China is like going through a range of check-boxes. In my experience, workers in China are mostly not focused on the end-result, but only(!) on whether they have gone through the check boxes that are on their (own) task list. That way they cannot be held responsible for anything (which is important as when an accident happens, everybody will be looking down for a scape-goat. So you quickly learn to cover your bases and stick to your described tasks only).

          So if you checked your check-boxes, and found the victim, then it was a “succesfull rescue”. The status of the victim (dead in this case) does not change that.

      • Gordon Gogodancer

        :D it’s probably just a bad translation

        • Paul Schoe

          Unfortunately it isn’t a bad translation. They litterally say “success rescue”.

          The success is not related to the state of the victim, but to the fact that they went out to find a baby and succeeded. They are task-oriented, not primarily focused on the end-result and in their books this will be registered as a “succesfull rescue”.

      • Germandude

        You are nit-picking on details here ;-)

    • Gordon Gogodancer

      That’s probably a lie…you know the traffic in any city in China.

          Those criminals killed kids and tortured their victims before killing them. The gov’t needs to protect the good people from human trash.

      • linette lee

        The world needs to practice more death penalty to get rid of human trash. Death by lethal injection. Quick and clean death.

        • Gordon Gogodancer

          That’s some quite extreme comments your making here. So far i thought you were more tolerant.
          This makes me think about the Japanese students i had in my class back in Beijing, they were very nice but has some weird extreme views on immigration…they were still stuck in the narrow minded idea that foreigners (from poor countries) just came to their country to deal drugs and create problems as opposed to the idea that they come trying to have a better life..

    One does not simply drop a baby into a river!!! WTF!!! how does that happen? is the stroller in the river with the kid? was the kid attached to a kite maybe and became detached? Did the baby roll over the edge while being changed?(nvm the picture the baby was clothed) how in the hell does one accidentally drop a child that can’t walk into a river? riddle me that?

  • 二奶头发

    Not to change subject but I wonder why china doesn’t use one number for all emergencies? 110 police, 119 fire. 120 Ambulance , 122 traffic accident. would it be better to use one number (like 911 in the US and Canada) ?

      same number … hmm … then you might call for an ambulance, but police will come instead and shoot you … http://reason.com/blog/2013/10/07/woman-says-she-called-911-for-an-ambulan

    • EmergencyMedDoc

      120 is very different from 911 in that it’s often based in several facilities and calls are routed based on proximity – it’s an OKservice, at least in large areas, as dispatchers are able to locate a facility that is ready to handle the case based on description and the dispatchers are often doctors or senior nurses. There is however corruption – if a polytrauma patient (one with multiple traumatic injuries that requires extreme surgery) in an automobile accident is phoned in, often times multiple nearby designated trauma centers compete for these patients as they are higher value in terms of cashflow the hospital might receive. In theory the patient will always be sent to the patient best equipped to receive he/she, but in practice there’s some under the table business that does happen.

      The bigger problem is how poorly equipped ambulances are in China. I’m not sure if it would have made a difference in this case, but it certainly wouldn’t have hurt, either. Bless this poor child’s innocent soul.

      • 5,000 years of uncivilization

        With the way traffic is getting in most Chinese cities, ambulances should be more like mobile hospitals. If the emergency is so urgent, patients are likely to die before they arrive to a hospital, especially in rush hour.

        • EmergencyMedDoc

          There is a big business proposition for this, you’re right. It’s coming, though large multinationals such as my employer require ample time and planning to cost-down the essential products needed (mobile x-ray, ultrasound, diagnostics, drugs, stabilization equipment..etc), which should make these things available soon.

          The government had built some 100 mobile clinic vehicles and had been sending them around Inner Mongolia, Qinghai, Xinjiang, and Tibet into 2012, expanding into Han terrain since then. They cost around 800k RMB each as fitted with mostly domestic products, and were heavy on treatment of women for paps/annual check up/pregnancy testing and exams, though they did screen for chronic illness and hypertension. These will be coming to China in greater frequency once the decision is made to jump the gun, produce thousands of them, and trim down the cost per unit once the volumes are there! Hopefully by then we will have seen a reduction in incidence in these kinds of horrific acts, but will be better prepared to handle them.
