Qiantang River Tidal Wave Destroys Guardrails, Nearly 30 Tourists Injured

Influenced by typhoon “Trami”, a rare 20-meter-high huge wave appeared again at QianTang River Haining Laoyancang tidal bore watching dike today [August 22]. However, danger happened again during the thrilling spectacle as the fierce back-flow bore destroyed the tidal wall, causing injuries of varying degrees to nearly 30 tourists on the scene. This is the scene filmed by a Haining Channel reporter at the optimal tidal bore watching spot in Laoyancang at 1pm this afternoon [August 22]. From the video, we can see a tidal wave crossing the seawall from west to east and hurling towards the spectators, flapping along the dam. The billowy tide even went over the top of the wire fencing, upsetting the 20-meter-high wave wall as well as the wire fencing behind it. The distance between the shooting position and the site was less than 10 meters. Fortunately, the reporter escaped unhurt.

Zhejiang Haining: Qiantang River 6.6-meter “Back-flow Bore” Sweeps Yancang Area, Knocking Over Hundreds of Tourists

People are struggling in the tide.

2013 August 22th, in Zhejiang Haining, influenced by typhoon “Trami”, tides in Qiantang River were much higher than usual and attracted many wave-watchers. At 12:40pm, a billowy back-flow bore appeared in the Yancang area, with a 6.6-meter high tide level and 1.3-meter high surge. This unexpectedly huge wave hurt a lot of spectators. Picture is of spectators being washed into the trees.

2013 August 22, at a tidal bore watching dike in Zhejiang Haining Laoyancang, spectators were washed off the dike. That day, influenced by typhoon “Trami”, the Qiantang River coast experienced Level 7-8 winds, raising huge waves at the wave-watching dike in Zhejiang Haining Laoyancang. The back-flow bore washed a lot of spectators off the dike, with many people on the scene suffering various degrees of injury.

Tofu-dregs [poor construction].

wudi大仙: (responding to above)

Stupid, you think the destructive power [of the tide] is like draining off the water in the fishpond in your village?

5931281: (responding to above)

Are you a 2B. This is only the front of the wave, and the wall was destroyed by the first attack. You know, the function of the wave wall is to keep off the violent wind and waves. The dike has a history of several decades at most. What’s more, the tides are not as huge as this every time and they don’t happen every day of the year, this is just a short moment in a year but the wall couldn’t hold it. What if it was a huge flood and the dike was repeatedly washed? Then people would be waiting to die, wouldn’t they? We should reflect when something happens. You can’t always say it’s because of the force of nature. Why do people flee when volcanoes erupt? It’s because we can’t defend against that kind of power. Why was this dike built and why do people dare to watch? It’s because we think we can defend against it. But shoddy construction has lowered our sense of security to the lowest. I bet [this wall] is even inferior to some ancient city walls.

撒旦的符号:

With some people, I don’t know if it’s because they no idea how powerful the tide is or if they’re just not afraid of death. I am from Qingdao. There are always some non-local visitors stuck or washed by the rising tide every year.

jjzl0606:

The tide says: It’s not because I’m too strong; it’s your shoddy construction that is too weak.

粟曦:

“Heart will not die before reaching Qiantang River” [a literal translation of the original Chinese text, which is a play on a Chinese phrase that figuratively means one will not give up until something is achieved].

老师来撕轿车:

What “haven’t yet recovered from shock”? It looks to me they’re hooting about how enjoyable it was! We have typhoons here every year, and there are always some inland people going to the seaside to watch the tidal waves. The local police can’t get even dissuade them, nor drag them away [from the danger].

镜中愁容满面发未梳:

I am from Haining and this really isn’t shoddy construction. The tide comes twice a day and the power of the impact is extremely frightening. It may not feel very shocking in the video, but only by standing on the seawall can you really feel the true power of nature.

97112251:

The reason why these stones [that formed the wall] could be collapsed by the wave is because it was rather moist [humid?] that day, and that the river water isn’t like distilled water and contains large amount of silt which increases the destructive power of the water. What more, don’t think humans can conquer the earth [nature], there are still many unknown things waiting for us to discover…

夏露丶:

Every year something [bad] happens but every year there are a lot of people going [there to watch the waves]…

抵制低俗崇尚真善美:

The arc-shaped dike of the Qiantang River levee is very designed very spaciously, very beautiful! There’s even a section of green lawn, to lessen the impact of the tidal bore. Thanks to the hard-working cameraman, otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to see such spectacular scenery. Pay attention to your safety, though.

bigbee115:

The stuff swept over was just the stone wall that served as the guardrail; the main body of the levee wasn’t broken. Not long ago, a hole appeared at a part of the main body of the dam due to the tide. Dangerous things happened every year at Qiantang River before the government invested money to build a standard sea embankment, and every time a typhoon hit, surrounding militia and Party members had to deal with the [damage/danger caused by the] typhoon for days.

雪顶威士忌:

No matter how advanced our technology is, we still can’t defend against nature’s revenge.

露1路:

The government could totally change that right angle dike into an obtuse angle, which would allow the tide to simply slap against the shore without there being injuries to people. Think about problems instead of making problems. What’s important are the people’s lives and property.

Suggest insurance companies to set up stalls there every year on this occasion. Accident insurance will sure be on hot sell.

I am from Qiantang River area. I see people die every year for not knowing how terrible the tidewater is. I’ve seen with my every eyes that some non-local people playing beside the river when the tide was about to come. They had no idea of the strong tide and ignored the people who were asking them to come up. When the tide was near, they just couldn’t escape even if they wanted to… and died in the Qiantang River in the end. Their bodies couldn’t even be found. We local people usually know if the tides are big or small and at what time a tide will raise, so it’d be better if non-local friends don’t go down the River bank easily.

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐浙江省嘉兴市网友]:

I guess few of you have seen the Qiantang tide. There are tens of thousand visitors crowded around the river side on lunar August 15. Maybe it’s because the tide reaches the highest level that day. Anyway, if you go to watch it, you might be as miserable as them! The tide on the east side of the river is the biggest and the best. You will feel it’s all dark when the tidewater comes straight at you, with very loud noises and fierce momentums, making people want to run away. Actually, you can’t see the tide when it comes in front of you, because the tide is very billowy and tumbles toward you. It’s like a black hole overwhelms you. How exciting it is! A crowd of people near us yelled at that time! Oh fuck, it’s going to get rich [a Chinese exclamation to express being amazed]!

本人易飞 [搜狐湖北省武汉市网友]:

I can assure everybody here that people are always curious, especially Chinese people! Few people can resist their curiosity and not go there! I can’t even guaranty I wouldn’t go there!!! So only after they are busted and learned a lesson would they know it’s not a place they should go or a thing they should do. Most Chinese people are just like this, never reflect on themselves but complain about other people!! Nor do they learn a less from others. They must experience themselves to know the pain.

搜狐网友19824777 [搜狐江苏省南京市网友]:

Didn’t the local government take any safety measures for this? Though the back-flow tide in Yancang is a natural phenomenon, the local government should know how terrible it is. Why couldn’t they take precautions in advance? From netizens’ posts, we can see that local people know how terrible the tide is and people die because of it every year. The local government never seemed interested in taking safety precautions.

崇福妈咪 [搜狐重庆市网友]: (responding to above)

I’m also from there. Actually, there’s usually someone there to tell people to go to a higher concrete place to watch the tidal wave, but there are always people who insist on climbing down to the river shore, or insist on going to spots that aren’t designated for wave watching. Once when I went to watch the tide, I even saw someone park their cars right by the river side. I was speechless.

搜狐网友19824777 [搜狐江苏省南京市网友]: (responding to above)

It is precisely because of this phenomenon that management has to be strengthened. If it’s as you said that “there are always people who insist on climbing down to the river shore, or insist on going to spots that aren’t designated for wave watching”. If there were some police officers maintaining order there, there would never be any problem of “climbing down to the river shore”, nor would avoidable tragedies happen.

爱像蒲公英523在搜狐 [搜狐广东省深圳市网友]:

You clearly know a typhoon has come and instead of avoiding it, you instead go closer to watch! You think it’s fun? Having fun showing off how fearless and unafraid of death you are! And yet when the wave hits, you run faster than anyone! Fuck you, don’t run away! Weren’t you not afraid of death? If you have the balls, don’t run! No matter if they were injured or killed, these people all don’t deserve sympathy! They deserve it.

烟花沼泽57320982 [搜狐网友]:

If I didn’t see that a girl was injured, I would’ve been ready to scold/criticize people. Honestly, certain people should really be allowed to suffer the consequences once. Always forgetting, year after year this kind of thing happens. Who knows, maybe some lawyers will be saying again that the government didn’t put up warning signs and the government should take responsibility [for the injured] and so on.

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐湖北省网友]:

Some people “clearly know there’s a tiger in the mountains and insist on going into the mountains”, which is totally playing with their lives. And then there are those who even take their children to watch the tide. These people’s death is not to be sympathized, but please don’t involve children. I’m speechless.

    Come on kids lets all go down to the river and see the big wave.

    • the ace of books

      As I went down to the river to pray
      Studying about that good ole way….

      • mr.wiener

        And got up afterwards and said: Oh brother, wherefore art thou?

    • 剑胆琴心

      if your in china, hope you can keep yourself far away from chinese girls.
      or i really look down you…
      hope your not some cheap white loser or fucker has to make a living in china at the same timefuck around. hope this type of white trash is not you…
      next time,do not bother me.

      • 二奶头发

        Thanks…The last girl just wanted to go down on me. Your way is much cleaner.

        • Gordon Gogodancer

          好榜样~~~

      • pmarks

        We white men in China fuck your ugly, slimy girls only to empty our balls. We care nothing about you. You’re only receptacles for our sperm. And we don’t care what you think about us one tiny bit. How does that make you feel, bitch?

      • Blackhawk

        hey, aren’t you married to a white trash?

        • Jeffrey Jones

          she just got owned!

      • Jeffrey Jones

        think before you type, just a suggestion, might make you more classy!

  • mr.wiener

    Hmm. I’m predicting a tsunami of “Chinese are dumb-arses”, “shoddy construction” and ” Darwin award” comments here.
    Sufficient only to say you should be really careful at these kind of things as mother nature does what she wants, not as the tourists or even the locals would have her do,
    Glad no one was killed.

    • Butsu

      What I’m wondering is why some of them look so happy. The situation doesn’t seem to be a laughing matter.

      • nqk123

        i was thinking that too

      • lonetrey / Dan

        I’m guessing it’s showing a bit of hysteria as they ran away in fear, perhaps.

      • Kate

        Maybe because not all of them were in danger/hurt and it was exciting?

      • Probotector

        They look like they’re wincing, actually.

      • Dick Leigh

        Nobody died, and out of hundreds of people, only thirty people were injured so this isn’t really a thuper therious situation either

        . My first reaction to the photos was “Whoa that looks like fun!”.

      • John Snow

        people as so desensitised to fear and danger that when the feel the adrenalin they think its Euphoria.

      • Gordon Gogodancer

        Until the very last second they thought the barrier was going to protect them….

    • POS

      All I gotta say is why are so many of them smiling all goofy like with that unreal wall of water coming down on them?! I think an “oh shit” face is more in order. BTW whats with the pessimism, lol?

      • Kai

        If I just looked at the pictures, I’d think it might be that sort of laugh of relief that comes with surviving something relatively unscathed that really could’ve killed you if you weren’t lucky. What kinda disturbed me was the video. I expected more “holy shit, flee!” but heard more “oohs and aahs”. Granted, they had a sense of security because the place is literally designed to watch the wave so they didn’t think they were in any real danger, but at some point, your brain should be saying “wait a sec, that’s awfully close and closing in”, and the oohing and aahing should become oh shitting.

        But maybe I’m just being judgmental.

        • POS

          Agreed (^^’)

    • Repatriated

      Like the tsunami in Thailand a few years ago. Everyone ran down to the beach…wondering where all the water went…only to find out seconds later.

      • mwanafa

        Oh , “curiosity killed a cat”.

      It appears the wall was stuck together by no more than binglang spit.

  • wafflestomp

    I wish random waves would injure tourists all over the world, then they might stay where they belong, in China.

    Until the masses are educated in etiquette, they shouldn’t be released. Thumbs up if you agree!

    • mr.wiener

      It won’t educate anyone[ unfortunately], next year there will be even more tourists there to see the famous spot where all those people got washed away last year.

      • Kate

        Well the infuriating part isn’t the stupid adults who get killed, it’s the stupid adults who drag their children to somewhere dangerous and then they get killed……I can’t believe people had kids there…..

        • 剑胆琴心

          you always keep on talking about kid this kid that….
          so boring…
          my best friend, she has a very beautiful daughter,she never talks about her kid and never put her girl’s photo out…and you can always feel she is a still very attractive single lady…

          • Atlas

            Too bad your kids will never be pretty.

          • 剑胆琴心

            none your business!
            how about if i dislike kid at all then?

          • POS

            You don’t like kids? How about dogs? I like dogs. wanna get a dog? Just don’t eat it ok?

          • The Enlightened One

            What in the world?

            You say someone talks too much about kids and then go on to talk about your friend and her kid like anyone cares… haha

          • Kate

            Yeah thats exactly what I was thinking…..she is just jealous …im use to chicks hatin like that. Eh whatever.

          • 剑胆琴心

            you live in korea why chinese girls jealous or hate you????what for?
            why you dare not to say korean women hating you?because your husband is korean, right?
            come on, wake up, there are so many super stunning white girls in shanghai, i am not living in village would be shocked by your photos,ok?
            i also have some white gfs,but bad thing is, none of them put on heavy make up as you,let alone red lip sticker, maybe korea changes you too much???

          • Kate

            and you’re the one making this into a race thing………did I ever once mention asian or white? Nope. I just said women like you. Yo’re the one making all those implications because of your inferiority complex. And I read your other comment before you deleted. Just fucking pathetic is what you are. Seriously attacking my that red lipstick? Seriously? Ok whatever.

            Sigh….But then again, here I am replying to you and letting you drag me to your level……I need a shower.

            Edit: Wanna join me Eattot? You could use one too.

          • mr.wiener

            Pictures!! or it didn’t happen.

          • Kate

            Oh and since you’re implying that I’m only pretty with makeup on, well I will be more then happy to engage in a face off with you. I’ll post a pic of me without makeup, you do the same. I’m not scared at all.

          • Zappa Frank

            no please Kate, think about us..don’t let her post

          • The Enlightened One

            I kind of feel bad for eattot. I know Chinese people like her and they are the most stubborn, pig-headed and empty voided people I have ever seen.

            You can never have enough proof, you are always wrong (especially if you are a foreigner) and she is always right.

            People like that can never improve themselves.

            go talk to your chinese wife more.
            fuck off!

          • Kate

            Here, Eattot, I’ll even go first. No makeup, just woke up 2 hours ago, hadn’t even had a shower yet. And 2 pics of me with makeup to compare. Your turn sweetheart.

            Why do you look so dead on the inside?

          • The Enlightened One

            Actually, you both aren’t bad. Kate has a sort of inquisitive, innocent look to her. Eattot has a sort of sultry, dark attitude. Opposing forces but I can find positive traits in both.

            Very brave of you both, I applaud you.

            Linette noone is bothering her, read her comments first before praising her, better yet ill post them here

            Kate says, “Well the infuriating part isn’t the stupid adults who get killed, it’s the stupid adults who drag their children to somewhere dangerous and then they get killed……I can’t believe people had kids there…..”

            and she replies

            my best friend, she has a very beautiful daughter,she never talks about her kid and never put her girl’s photo out…and you can always feel she is a still very attractive single lady…”

            Seriously, wtf… if she took the time or effort to make a comment after reading and comprehending it, this shit storm would have never happened, she basically did this to herself as always, she isn’t outspoken, she has her foot in her mouth, you shouldn’t encourage that, if anything you should convince her to improve her English comprehension…

          • linette lee

            I see. Well the two girls are talking about kids and all the sudden they have some sexy photos posting contest to see who’s prettier. It’s like some cat fight or something right. It’s almost like you and the couple of other men surrounding in circle watching a cat fight. Not too cool I have to say. Very high school. What do you have to say for yourself? I am listening.

            Actually I’m not a big fan of hunting. I enjoy in the silence of it. I just do it for meat. Venison is my favorite type of meat. No, It taste nothing like chicken. I does not taste like any domestic animal. You can get in some restaurants, more high end ones. Just just look for venison on the menu.

            Sure, my wife likes to cuddle me, i’m her main squeeze. lol

We have very little hair. So little hair in armpits and down there. Once waxed takes long time to grow back.

            Non Asians have lots of hair and very hairy all over. Even the salon chinese women joke saying every time a non chinese walks in they have to use the whole bucket of wax. lol.

            Bullshit. Quite a few Chinese girls I’ve seen could really do with running a razor over their skin. The fact that the hair is jet black also makes it stand out more.

            Do you do anything similar to sports? Like, my cousin is from the city where she walks everywhere everyday. So when I took her on a tour of NYC, she outwalked me the whole day and left me in the dust. Perhaps your weakness in sports is covered by other strengths! :P

            First reply to Kate. While your integrity in dealing with things ‘face’ on (pun inintented) are well placed, I would like to bring to your attention the presence a lot of guys around here. Ok forget us guys, think of the kids. At least think of the kids, the nightmares they would have to endure if that…’THING’ puts ANOTHER image up. Please take this into consideration prior to making good on your challenge. Jealousy is simlpy hidden admiration where one feels little gain in open admiration so resorts to hatred as it is more gratifying and also results in blaming the other for the condition one is ‘suffering’ from. Just a thought…

    • Alex

      What you said might sound like a joke, but I actually see that a lot. People pretty much don’t feel alive here.

      Sometimes people even have to start screaming for no reason in the street after partying a bit just to feel the rush or hormones going through the body. And when they go to a place where you actually can feel things, they get an overdose of that shit and don’t know how they should even behave or feel about it.

      • Claude

        Exactly my point. A lifetime of slogging it out to put food on the table and scrape enough together so their children go to college (so they don’t have to live a meager existence, also) and finally you take your first vacation ever (in China) and your experiencing this freedom and then this incredible natural force. I mean, what must they be thinking? “We’re alive! A near death experience, we’re alive!” Nothing like to make you feel engaged in life life than the intensity of a near death experience.

      Only problem with your statement is they’ve been on the capitalistic economic road for decades now.

      • Claude

        Yes, of course but the middle-class lifestyle of the Chinese isn’t that of the west we’re, excuse me; whats left of the middle-class of North America. North-Americans have a lifestyle that of millionaires did in the 1950′s. The middle-class in China have a pretty oppressive existence in my opinion. Small bunker like apartments, poor healthcare, food, air quality and a communist culture of spying on one-another not to mention the conformist nature of the culture leads to a meager existence. I’d be going ape shit also if on holiday. Just my opinion, I spent a year in Shanghai and felt it didn’t compare but obviously better than being poor migrant worker. I also acknowledge it’s only going to get better for China.

        • Robert Rou

          What is this “communist culture” you speak of? Today, the closest thing we have to anything communist culture-related is either Jesus and/or Linux.

          • Claude

            The Communist culture is that need to keep everyone in check, that hangover leftover from Communism. The gossip, backstabbing, turning people against one another and creating coalition to oust people who aren’t falling into line or bully until they do. Compound that with he conformist nature of an Asian society; the gossip, backstabbing turning people against one another and creating coalitions to oust people who aren’t falling into line or bully until they do and it’s pretty oppressive. Now, I won’t deny the before mentioned is a part of all societies to some degree; we’re all tribal to some extent and Canadians have a bad case of tall poppy syndrome. Shit, Canadians are duller than dishwater and there are cases of bullying. But, the boundaries of individuality are far more broader in the west. I’ve never seen such nastiness in anywhere like I did in China. I have to say Japan was also pretty nasty but China was over the top.

          • Jeffrey Jones

            What you wrote especially about the backstabbing and manipulation is very true. When you see store clerks at the till sizing up people by how they are dressed and how they look, in order to decide what kind of service they should offer, then it is evident not everything is rosy. There is a very dark side to the culture. It is called “Qi Ruan Pa Ying” or “Bully the meek, but be afraid of BIGGER bullies!”

    Amazing pictures, look almost surreal

    Protip: in the contest of “man vs. nature”, nature always wins.

    This is tofu construction, to be sure. But that’s because almost everything is tofu construction nowadays – it’s to be expected.

    It’s also to be expected that this crowd was watching the tides and hooting. They don’t feel there’s anything to be scared of because they’re city folk, with no experience of and therefore no respect for nature. Giant tidal bore? That’s a picture opportunity! It’s shelteredness and naivety, sure, but it’s a shelteredness and naivety that happens to cityfolk from all around the world. I don’t bet they’ve learnt jack from this, either – it’s not “oh my god, the water’s so strong!”, it’s “oh my god, how could that have happened?”

    I like the comments from the people who live there – they’re as irritatedly flabberghasted as these folks’ behavior as I. Glad there’s some who get it.

      • biggj

        The guy in the pink shorts and the rolled up shirt is doing a good enough job acting gay, I don’t need to help. lol

        • Refrigerator Jones

          Gay in China? Impossible. I was informed.

          • biggj

            And if they turn out being gay it from western influence. haha

      hahaha good one!

    • 二奶头发

      i hate it when chinese guys in the summer got to lift up their shirts like american cheerleaders. they walk around with there gut hanging out.

      • biggj

        I love it, makes me hard as shit…oops…did I say that out loud? ;)

      • Cv

        I think its pretty funny. But i always wondered why do they do this?

      • KAMIKAZIPILOT

        I hate it too, it’s like they’re teasing, just take if all off already and stop teasing us with your rock hard abs.

        • linette lee

          The waves are actually very pretty. I can imagine it must be exciting watching strong waves crashing into the shore while you are standing behind the fence. It is a place created for wave watch.

          • KAMIKAZIPILOT

            It’s a good thing you don’t live near there Linette. I’m sure you would be one of those watching the waves and then you would get swept away by the waves. Then you won’t be able to post on Chinasmack anymore and we’ll all be so sad :(

          • linette lee

            You are too cute. If I get washed away you need to come save me. Are you a good swimmer?

          • KAMIKAZIPILOT

            Yeah, I’m too cute for my own good. Sorry I can’t save you, I used to swim a lot when I was a kid, used to be able to tread water for over 30 minutes, but haven’t swim in many years now. All I can do is watch you get swept away and say “adios, been nice knowing you”.

      • John Snow

        Same thing in the Philippines. I think they are comparing how has the biggest gut. Because some of the shirts they wear does not even come close to covering their navel.

    • mr.wiener

      I hope you don’t “suffer too much!
      The word you are looking for is “surf” or “surfing”.

      • The Enlightened One

        I think she actually means suffer lol…

        Chinese say that a lot in normal speech.

        “We watched the fireworks today and suffered. Lots of construction noises, but we can’t do anything but suffer…”

        • Serpico

          Such a sad nation. T~T

      • Refrigerator Jones

        Suffer works so much better

    • Zappa Frank

      ROTFL haha

  • Refrigerator Jones

    Kind of looks like some of those people are like, “Best trip ever!!!!”

  • biggj

    The police officer in the picture is intense!! That guy don’t play games. I love the enthusiasm. lol

    • Kai

      Haha, yeah, he looks pretty torn up about it. Kinda at odds with the smiley faces in the other pictures.

      • Serpico

        Yeah, the people seem happy. Also, naked butts.

  • biggj

    We get a lot of people like this around where I live. A hurricane will be coming and some guy with a camera thinks it’s a good idea to go stand on the slippery rocks by the ocean and take pictures of the waves. And is shocked when they get hit by a massive wave and pulled out to sea. Every year I hear about at least 1 person dying or getting rescued close to where I live. All for some facebook post most likely.

    • KAMIKAZIPILOT

      Yeah, I think there’s idiots everywhere, after all whenever there’s a natural disaster that can be predicted (ex. hurricane, tidal wave, etc) there’s always a few dummies that are out in the middle of it. But in China instead of just a few people seems like the whole town decided to check it out. They must be bored with their lives

  • KAMIKAZIPILOT

    Cowabunga, surf’s up dude!!! Some of these guys look like they’re having way too much fun. It’s all fun and games until someone gets killed or hurt bad.

  • The Enlightened One

    The police officer looks so dramatic.

    He’s like “aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah” the entire time lol.

  • peye

    Yes; Management has to be strengthened , police needs to tell people what to do.
    Everyone needs a babysitter. Nobody requires the ability to think for themself or protect him/herself. All acting like a bunch of lemmings. Children excepted.

    Are they laughing because they have socialized medicine? They know if they get hurt, they can get help without declaring bankruptcy.

  • staylost

    Despite the fact that the original report seems to be focusing on the damage and danger, I am mostly struck by the joy and excitement on the majority of faces.

    Could they see it coming and knew it was going to flow over the top of the dike?

  • coldraindrops

    Just a small correction, the guy in uniform is not a police officer, but a security guard as you can see on his arm patch.

  • 二奶头发

    Not to change subject but this is currently trending on weibo
    现在的大学新生真的是花样繁多

    • Marcus Black

      lol What’s the story behind this? How old are these kids? Is that a girl showing her p*ssy and a**hole?

      • 二奶头发

        it’s university students not really any story just.. new enrolled uni students really are a great variety (roughly what the translation says)

        • Marcus Black

          nice. I will be a university student in a few weeks.

          • Zappa Frank

            didn’t you wanted to be a university student in a few weeks? hahaha…

          • Marcus Black

            I am still going to be. I chose mixed accommodation so hopefully there is at least a few girls in the house. Either way I will be hunting females. The problem with that picture is how feminine those “males” look. Sometimes its hard to tell if a Chinese person is male or female because:

            1. Most of the women have very very flat chests
            2. Most of the men are shaped like the women
            3. All the men have very very flat chest
            4. ….

            So you see there is an overlap.

      • 二奶头发

        the comments on weibo are similar to yours all questions and speculation. nobody knows whats going on. HAHA.. maybe it’s a new way to take a bai jiu shot?

    • YourSupremeCommander

      Thats how GAY people become GAY, their explorations went too far.

  • Take5

    Police officer helping the girl. Finally a Chinese Police officer doing something halfway decent and heroic. China has the most weak-assed police force on the planet. Couldn’t protect a popsicle from bring licked by a baby.

  • jem

    I thought this was a serious article when I saw the security guard’s face. Then I saw some laughing and grinning pictures. How peculiar…

    • http://chinasweat.blogspot.com/ Mike Lovett

      Chinese, from my own personal experience, tend to laugh when they are nervous or “lose face”. I arrived in China five weeks after 9/11. The images of the two towers was still being shown on TV. On more than one occasion, a Chinese person would point at it, laugh and smile. They truly don’t know how to respond to disaster.

  • Fanduril

    Poor girl with the butt injury is gonna have a hella bad infection from that river sludge.

  • linette lee

    That is some tidal waves. Wow..They have fences and walls but still no match to mother nature. Thank god no one got washed away.

    That poor little girl got injured. Poor thing.

    That reminds me I was just at water rafting in Pennsylvania and I saw so many parents bring their kids. This sport has risk and people do drown and died and get washed away and it’s not a cheap sport. Nature is no joke.

    Maybe it’s safer to just go swimming in the pool.

  • Doobie Brothers

    Those orientals are so funny!

    • http://chinasweat.blogspot.com/ Mike Lovett

      You seriously used the word “Orientals”? How old are you, 100? Nobody calls Chinese or Japanese or Asians “Orientals”! LMAO

  • Tadd

    Seriously… guys… look closely at these photos:
    a) So many people laughing/smiling/not-giving-a-fuck, just like a huge splash from a theme park ride (gets the spectators wet)
    b) Policeman sees camera opportunity… “Quick, look the part of ‘the hero’” I can just imagine him screaming “Call an ambulance!, She’s not going to die on my watch” all the while, people stroll past him, eyebrows raised, saying “Okay, dude, calm down… this isn’t baywatch”
    c) That little girl needed help? Sure, there’s blood, I think she just fell flat on her arse.. I’m not sure it warrants being saved as though being rescued from a burning building

    Feeling a-bit pessimistic today…

  • John Snow

    I just saw that poor girls butt… I am going to jail…

    • http://chinasweat.blogspot.com/ Mike Lovett

      baby ass.

  • Jeffrey Jones

    How do you know she has to? Perhaps she can go home anytime she wants to?

  • http://chinasweat.blogspot.com/ Mike Lovett

    I really wanted to berate the Chinese tourists, but honestly, this could have happened anywhere. Just a freak accident. Sorry for that little girl who practically lost all her clothing and the other people.
