17 backpacking tourists entered Guangxi Long Beach River Nature Preserve to explore with no official leader, no contingency plan in case of difficulty, and no detailed maps. As a result they were met with torrential rain and became lost, so a local government organization gathered 100 people and at the expense of over 100,000 RMB rescued the 17 backpackers. Consequently, the local government decided that every backpacker be fined 1000 RMB. Chinese netizens say that these backpackers have wasted many resources just in order to explore for a while, and what’s more the rescue party is risking it’s life, could it be that the rescue party’s lives aren’t really lives?! The punishment is too light!
