【Ignored toddler doesn’t tell the whole story about China】
Globe and Mail / Beijing — MARK MACKINNON
Update Posted on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 7:38AM EDT
Shortly after my wife and I first arrived in Beijing three years ago, we went out for dinner at a trendy Yunnanese restaurant not far from the apartment block in the east of the city where we now live. After a fine dinner of spicy chicken, lotus root and the mushrooms for which China’s Yunnan province is famous, we paid our bill and walked out, leaving a modest tip behind as thanks for a dinner well-made and well-served. A few minutes later, the waitress came running up the dark street behind us. “You forgot your change,” she told us, panting. Tipping, we hadn’t yet learned, is not common in China. And as the waitress showed, the vast majority of people here – like anywhere – are honest to a fault. No big revelations in what I just wrote, but it nonetheless felt like it needed to be said.
In the days since the appalling CCTV footage of little Yueyue being run over twice – and then ignored by an astonishing 18 passersby – has gone viral, tough questions have been asked about how those who walked by could act the way they did (answers are difficult) and whether or not there’s something larger that’s wrong with Chinese society (a fair question being asked by the country’s own citizens and, less directly, its government).
But at times, the discussion – including on The Globe and Mail's website – has struck an uncomfortably racist tone. Some commentators, to my eyes and ears, seemed to suggest that Chinese people were somehow less moral than the rest of us. That’s utter nonsense, and misses what really happened in that Foshan market. Several of the 18 passersby have since been tracked down by Chinese media and questioned about their behaviour. While a few have claimed – improbably – that they didn’t notice the little girl bleeding at their feet, others are clearly wracked with guilt. Why didn’t they intervene? The word “fear” keeps coming up.
“I was scared,” a woman named Lin – infamous for walking by Yueyue with her own 5-year-old daughter – told Chinese media. “If someone (else) was helping at that time, I would have done the same.”
Her reaction is one many Chinese citizens can understand well. The video of the 18 people ignoring the prone toddler has spawned comment threads millions of posts long on Chinese websites. Many Internet commentators admit they’re not sure they would have done any different. Why? Indifference isn’t the answer. The Chinese I’ve met are anything but indifferent. Going for a walk in Beijing with our own 20-month-old daughter often draws a small crowd of locals. She’s precious, they remind us. Is she warm enough? But the same people will hurry by without stopping if they see someone knocked off their bicycle by a taxi cab (something else that happens regularly in Beijing). Why? The legal system here is unpredictable and unfair to those without money and political connections. Getting involved can often get you in trouble.
The most oft-cited case is that of Peng Yu, a Nanjing man who stopped to help an elderly lady who fell and broke her hip five years ago. Faced with sky-high medical costs, the 65-year-old lady turned on the Good Samaritan and alleged that he had caused her to fall. In a ruling that cites no evidence whatsoever, the Nanjing court accepted the woman's claims, finding it “at odds with reason” that Mr. Peng would have helped her merely out of the goodness of his heart. He was ordered to pay $6,000 towards the woman’s medical bill. Mr. Peng’s case is known by an astonishing number of people here, and there are many others like it. The phenomenon is so widespread that when a 75-year-old man fell at a Nanjing bus stop in 2009, no one helped him up until he yelled out “I fell on my own, you all do not need to worry, it had nothing to do with you all.”
As improbable as it may seem to those of us who grew up in Canada, at least some of those 18 passersby were likely frozen by the thought that stopping to help the toddler could lead to being charged with involvement in a horrible crime. The point is, the same people, in another place, might have acted very differently in the same situation. And no one who didn’t grow up in China can know for sure how they would have acted if they were a citizen of the People’s Republic when they came upon little Yueyue. (I was a guest on a BBC World Radio program that discussed Yueyue's case this week. A caller from the Czech Republic reminded listeners that there was nothing uniquely Chinese about the reaction of the 18 passersby, but that anyone who had grown up in an authoritarian state could understand what was going through their minds.) As even China’s official People’s Daily newspaper acknowledged in an editorial this week: “We could all be the pedestrians that walk past the injured girl.”
For all those wondering, little Yueyue remains in intensive care in a Guangzhou hospital, and the doctors treating her aren’t optimistic she’ll make it. Hearteningly, donations to help pay for her medical treatment have been pouring in from all over China.

GUANGZHOU - Yue Yue, the 2-year-old girl who was run over by two vehicles in Foshan, Guangdong province last week, remained close to brain dead as donations poured in for her and her rescuer. "Her situation somewhat meets the standard of brain death," said Wang Weimin with the General Hospital of the Guangzhou Military Command of the People's Liberation Army. "We can say she is close to brain dead, but her pain reflex is very sensitive, which is the only feature not matching brain death," Wang said on Tuesday. Yue Yue still relies on machines for maintaining blood pressure and respiration. Tests on Monday found severe damage in the functions of her brainstem and cerebral cortex. There are a lot of possibilities in the development of her situation and she remains in critical condition, said Su Lei, director of the intensive care unit of the hospital.
Donations have poured in for Yue Yue and her rescuer, the 57-year-old woman Chen Xianmei, who moved the girl to the side of the road and shouted for her parents after the accident.A company based in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, gave 50,000 yuan ($7,850) cash to the girl's father, Wang Chichang, at the hospital on Tuesday. It pledged another 50,000 yuan and a cleaning job at the Foshan branch for Chen. Another company in Dongguan, Guangdong province pledged 500,000 yuan to Yue Yue's family, Chen and the fund in Guangzhou for rewarding those who help others in danger. Representatives from the Guangdong provincial women's federation visited the girl's family at the hospital and called for the public to help others in need. The father said they would go to the bank to check how much they had received and decide what to do with the donations. "We may open an independent account and put it under the supervision of the media," he said.
Chen at first refused to take the reward and then decided she would share it with Yue Yue. "I didn't do it for money. I didn't earn the money. I will feel uneasy if I take it. My daughter asked me not to take any money for fear of unkind words from others," Chen was quoted saying by Southern Metropolitan News. While Chen hoped for a normal life after the bombardments of media interviews, Yue Yue's family also had to deal with a lot they had not expected. Responding to remarks that they had opened a micro blog account for publicity and donations, the father said the micro blog service operator opened the account for them and wrote the micro blogs after learning of Yue Yue's latest situation."I can't express my feelings. I'm only thinking of saving my child. I didn't expect so many unrelated things to happen. I would like to stress that we didn't call for donations."
Many of the 18 people who passed by the girl at the accident scene and did not help denied that they saw the girl or were aware of the situation. One of them, a mother of a five-year-old girl, said she felt "regretful, compassionate, painful at heart and guilty," for seeing Yue Yue but not helping her. "I thought she had fallen down from playing and didn't know she was run over by vehicles until her mother came in tears. "She was bleeding from the mouth and nose and crying faintly. I was scared and my daughter was scared to cry. So we left in a hurry," said the woman surnamed Lin, cited by Guangzhou Daily. "I wanted to lift her, but there was so much blood. I was scared. If someone was helping at that time, I would have done the same."
A lawyer association will be set up as part of the Guangdong Law Society, which will study the practice of refusing to help dying people and push for legislation, said Zhu Yongping, a well-known lawyer at Datong Law Firm in Guangzhou.
