A man in Sichuan killed himself by jumping in a river. When his parents went to identify the body, fishermen asked 180,000 RMB for dredging it up, but eventually negotiated down to 8000 RMB. However, his parents couldn’t pay the fee, so they had to just let the corpse swell. Three days later the civil police coordinated with both sides, and the fee was set at 5400 RMB, so the body was pulled out and dragged ashore. The boy’s father said that the money was all lent from relatives. The fishermen think that fishing up dead bodies is ominous, and takes a lot of effort to bring out, so collecting a fee is something rightfully theirs. Netizens seem furious with the fishermen, one person said that this kind of fisherman has absolutely no sympathy, no morals, and getting this money will earn them karmic retribution.
