    I couldn't watch it as that sort of thing makes my cry til I'm sick.

    Just wanted to add that it really is hard to know what to do these days. I had a little girl sitting outside the school at least 45 mins after school finished, I would never consider putting her in my car and taking her anywhere but it sometimes is as easy as pulling up across the road and offering to call someone and making sure everything is ok and I definately couldn't leave an injured child.

    I couldn't watch it but read the article. OMG how can people just walk by something like that?
    WE grew up on a hill about half way down and kids were always coming off their bikes in front of our house, i remember there was one boy who was really badly injured and when he got out of hospital him and his parents came and brought my mum a bunch of flowers to thank them for calling the ambulance and making sure he was ok...

    I can only hope now that her death will not be in vain, China needs a wake up call.

    There are a lot of messed up things that go on in that country. Here is another classic example..

    I'd say humanity needs a wake up call, not just China. Not too long ago a young autistic child was seen wandering alone near a train track in Victoria wearing a nappy and a t shirt. Witnesses reported seeing him before he was hit by a train & killed. No one bothered to help him.

    My heart breaks for these poor children.

    I remember this video, it was heartbreaking. But, the place i saw it had more about the nations rules on helping accident victims and the punishments for breaking them and although it is incredibly heartbreaking i can understand why some people would be reluctant to stop and help if they felt they would get into serious trouble. It's not right by any means and i think it should be changed, but i understand the reason they didnt.

    I hope this little girl is ok, it sounds like she's not doing to good

    My daughter got lost when she was 3 in a shopping center, She ducked underneath some clothing racks (her favourite game at the time) and then under the next one until she couldn't find us anymore and we were frantic, We looked everywhere in the store and then some random lady and one of the shop assistants thought they saw her being led out of the shop by an unknown male, my heart stopped. I was so scared and upset, turned out that she was hiding in the back of the store still thinking it was apart of the game, we only found her there because one of DH's friends happened to be in the store at the time and rang him asking if she was with us that day (or was it her fathers day with her) because she was alone in store. The lady who tried to help and the shop assistant felt terrible that they had given us the wrong info and scared us so badly.

    I think that is part of why people don't want to help, if they have gotten it wrong or what ever. I know i've tried to help a little lost kid before and the parent (about 15mins later) went off at me as if i'd tried to take their child. All i did was ask the young child if they were lost and take them to the info desk at the shop we were in for the parent to be called. I was heartbroken that the mother could go off at me for trying to help
