Hit-and-run sparks outrage in China after toddler left for deadBy AP News Oct 18, 2011 10:54AM UTC
BEIJING (AP) — A video showing a toddler hit twice by vans and then ignored by passers-by is sparking outrage in China.
The 2-year-old girl, identified as Wang Yue, is in critical condition following Thursday’s accident. State media on Tuesday quoted the Guangzhou Military District General Hospital as saying that the child is unlikely to recover.
A closed-circuit television video obtained by state media shows the toddler walking on a narrow market street when she is struck by a van, ignored by passers-by and hit by another van before a trash picker finally picks up the child.
China’s Twitter-like service, Sina Weibo, has drawn 4.4 million comments and organized them under the heading “Please end the cold-heartedness.”
