Three boys who went to help a “fallen” old woman but ended up being blamed for the incident have finally been rewarded with 5000 RMB by a public welfare NGO. The incident occurred on November 15, 2013 as the boys were playing outside their home in Dazhou. After the woman “fell”, she requested that the boys pull her up, but after they helped her she immediately grabbed them and blamed the fall on them. She later went to hospital for two days to “prove” her claim and extorted the boys’ families for compensation. One netizen felt the reward was “stingy”, and that an extra 1000 would have made it easier to divide.
