Elderly Person Falls and is Run Over and Killed Because No one Helped Him Up, Village Head Claims He’s a Drunk Who Extorts People

The Beijing News report — At 4:30pm on February 1st, an elderly man in Zhejiang province Yuhuan county fell in the middle of the road, and over the next 8 minutes, 4 vehicles and 23 pedestrians passed by. With the exception of one elderly woman who went forward to inquire, everyone else only looked but did not lend an hand. In the end, the elderly man was run over by a white car, and even dragged a short distance.

This morning [February 4th] at 11pm, this Beijing News reporter learned from a representative of the Yuhuan county Party Committee Publicity Department that the fallen old man is a local drunk, and died on the spot after being run over. The village head of the old man’s village also confirmed this. The village head explained that the reason no one helped him up was because the old man is a well-known local drunk, who normally becomes unruly and rascally after drinking.

Surveillance footage: 8 minutes with no one helping

According to what is shown in surveillance footage of the incident, at 4:30pm on February 1st, while an old man wearing pajamas staggered across an intersection, he suddenly tilted over and landed heavily on the ground. Over the next eight minutes, a total of 4 vehicles and 23 pedestrians passed by, but the all only looked, with none lending a hand to help him up.

Five minutes after the old man collapsed, a passing motorist noticed the old man lying on the ground, got out to investigate the road conditions and then drove on. During this time, a woman who appears to know the old man passed by, called his name, but the old man did not respond. According to Zhejiang TV’s report, this woman then headed to the old man’s home to find someone to help.

At 4:38pm, a white automobile suddenly made a right turn at the intersection, running over the old man’s waist, and even dragged him a short distance, stopping only when pedestrians informed the driver. The driver got out and investigated, then immediately called the police.

This morning at around 11, a representative for the Yuhuan county Publicity Department stated that preliminary investigation revealed that this old man had fallen from excessive drinking. At present, the local traffic police are still investigating further.

Village head: No one dared to help

“He’s a well-known local drunk, and although he’s dead, we still need to make this clear.” This morning, the village head of the village where this incident occurred explained to this Beijing News reporter that there is a reason why no one helped up the fallen old man.

According to his explanation, the old man is named Chen Xiwen, and was 57 years old this year. The village head claims the old man was a bricklayer when he was young, but later because of his heavy drinking, even his wife had left him.

The village head claims that after heavy drinking, the old man often becomes unruly and scoundrelly, quarreling with other villagers. He has fallen many times before as well. “After helping him up, he’ll claim the other person pushed him down, that they must compensate him money, and has even urinated and defecated in other people’s homes.”

The village head says that before the fall that day, the old man was drinking in a small shop not 20 meters away. “Blood filled his nose and ear from the fall itself.”

—————-Heh, the old man brought it upon himself, by having turned people against him, a classic example of a bad person getting old and getting his just deserts.

Doesn’t the government media spend a lot of money every year calling on people to learn from Lei Feng?
