No One Helped an Old Man Who Fell on the Street and Suffocated from a Nosebleed

On September 2, 2011, Chutian Metropolis Daily, a newspaper in Wuhan, Hubei Province, reported that an 88-year-old man fell on the street in Wuhan and onlookers watched him dying.

The old man fell over near a vegetable market, less than 100 meters from his home. Though more and more onlookers surrounded him and watched, no one helped him up. After his wife and son came, more than an hour later, he was taken to the hospital. He died of suffocation from a nosebleed. “If someone had helped him by turning him over and letting the blood flow out from his nose, he might not have left … ,” cried his wife.
