Sorry, I know it's the Daily Fail, but my god, what is the world coming to.

Sorry I should have given a warning that the video is very upsetting.

Went on link but just couldn't make myself watch it.

Read a bit about it - stopped reading. But couldn't watch the video. It is horrendous.

Well of course YANBU?! confused

I really wouldn't watch that video everyone, I watched about two minutes yesterday and felt sick....... There is nothing to be gained from exposing yourself to that horrific sight.

What happened to that poor girl is utterly unbelievable.

I saw that elsewhere, horrified me then, horrifies me now.

I can't watch the video but the mother's quote breaks my heart:

“I won’t judge them, Qu said of the passers-by. “Let them make their own judgment. If they are married and have children, they will know. But I bear no grudge and refuse to be disappointed by society. Many kind people have come to help.”

there is another thread going about this. i agree it is awful. cant watch the video. but i have read enough to get the gist of what happened. shocking but some posters on teh other thread have explained why this might have happened.

I read about this yesterday & could not watch a video of such a horific event without being mentally scared afterwards. So sad.

It's a terrible thing. That poor, poor child. I really hope she makes it, although it isn't looking good at all.

People walk past injured child. Nobody wants to help. sad and I think WHY, why the hell would people do that. HOW could people do that?

And then I read this in the article -

"High-profile law suits have ended with good Samaritans ordered to pay hefty fines to individuals they sought to help. " (from the article)

and I wonder to what extent the two are linked. sad

What is wrong with people, who on earth would walk past an injured child?
Hope there is a place in hell for them all
