Families of Nursing Home Fire Deceased Reach Payout Agreement

Relatives of the victims of the recent Lushan nursing home fire disaster have had their compensation confirmed. Each deceased will be met with a 500,000 RMB payout after DNA tests have been completed, which are necessary for identification and claim purposes. The disaster resulted in 10m high flames, trapping many immobile residents in the ‘fire friendly’ constructions, and leaving behind twisted metal skeletons. Netizens were not impressed with the news, who resent the victims’ families effectively being rewarded for abandoning their elderly relatives.

    “abandoning their elderly relatives”?
    Unless you’re a registered nurse with no need to work, most folks will have to send their parents to the old folks home if they live long enough.
    Its an expensive and painful process.

    RIP to those poor folks who died in the fire.
