“86%” of Chinese Would Help Crushed Girl


China has been revolted by the callous and repeated hit-and-run crushing of a little girl and the subsequent unwillingness of passers-by to so much as acknowledge her bloodied body lying in the middle of the road, but according to surveys some 86% of Chinese claim they would help such an accident victim.


In a pathetic attempt to salvage a hero from the incident a media circus has erupted around the only woman to help the girl – despite the fact she wants nothing to do with any fame arising from an act of kindness she regards as a matter of course.

There are mixed reports over what actually happened to the girl – reports range from death to recovery, although the consensus now appears to be that she is brain-dead and in critical condition, with massive injuries and poor chances for recovery. The two motorists who ran over her have since been arrested.

Chinese media has expressed moral outrage, although widely publicised cases where good Samaritans have been forced to pay the medical costs of the people they helped or accused of actually injuring them in the first place have been highlighted as a partial explanation for the evident moral vacuum which is mainland China.

Online, the reaction to the incident is mainly one of outrage, although if the results of one survey of Internet users conducted on a major Chinese portal are to be believed, the majority of Chinese would actually help such a victim:

china-girl-crushing-3Call the police: 66.4%

Unhesitatingly help them and call for help from those around: 19.5%

I’d be afraid of being accused of perpetrating the crime, so I’d flee immediately: 6.9%

Wouldn’t know until I was there: 3.8%

Leave the frightening place immediately: 2.2%

Just stand around and watch: 0.6%

Pretend not to be interested and just stand around and watch: 0.6%

According to police, the girl was ignored by 18 passers-by before being helped – some simple application of probability theory suggests that with an 86% chance of someone assisting in some way, the chances of being ignored by 18 successive people are rather low, so either the girl was incredibly unlucky or the survey respondents incredibly deluded or dishonest…

    I hope the bastards who ran her down really get what's coming to them, especially that first guy! There's no way he didn't see her! What a monster.

    To me, it looked like the 2nd guy was the biggest monster. He clearly backed up, just so he could take his time crushing the hell out of her, as if it were some half-dead animal by the side of the road, like a rabbit or a dog(even then I'd be disgusted as hell).

    I wouldn't touch that bloody mess. I would LIKE to say I would help but from the description I probably would have puked from looking at her. I leave it to someone else

    I know it's probably not the case, but hopefully he tried to slow down just to kill her and put her out of her misery.
    It's very sad that it happened, but keeping a poor brain dead child alive is quite cruel. She'll never recover from this.

    You got my vote! Skinning them alive!

    Watching the video (without the blur) - her arms are up, begging for help. That 2nd TRUCK turned towards her... he did it on purpose and flashed her lights!

    They should RUN over him with his own truck and let him crawl his own way to a hospital.

    I wanted to ram those fuckers' van and truck with my suburban 4x4 that or a bus which I also have access to until they'd need the jaws of life to extract them.
    Of course being China there probably would be no jaws of life they'll end up using a sawzall.

    That or just shoot them in the knee caps with a colt .45 1911 or a shot gun with a slug.
    Why these weapons simple they have a big slow bullet which would do all kinds of nasty damage.

    i prefer skinning them alive. turn all their otherwise "salvagable" women and turn them into an egg cell manufacturing whores. after that, use their children as test subjects in car crashes, plane impact or the best part-- animal feed. burn their heritage and culture to the ground, hunt all chinese like animals...just like the witch hunt back in the dark ages. if we go modernized, we can use heavy vehicles to crush their bodies while other chinese watch as their fellow chinese scream in agonizing pain. how's that? do i need to add more?

    Apathy just seems to run deep in China where there's too much of an emphasis on base survival for everyone due to the deep divide of economic classes, too many citizens to take care of and people seem to largely live more for survival. I can't blame that too much, but that's where apathy comes in.

    That said, Sankaku as a site is just ridiculous to me right now. It's just fostering the same kind of hate and outrage again and again in the same way the UK Sun or other tabloids are prone to do. I can agree to the outrage and all, but this again? And the community is pretty much copying the negativity by being massive trolls themselves. I've seen the same crap happen to Reddit, 4chan, 2ch, Destructoid, etc. Oh well. Typical Internet.

    I can't decide whose worse, the first guy who realized her hit her, stopped, and then rolled over her again to escape, or the second guy who clearly saw her, for some reason seemed to think getting where he was going was more important, and fucking ran over her legs while making a feeble attempt to go around her.

    I just.. I can't even imagine. Were they really so stupid that they were thinking "Well I need to get down this road, I'm not sure I should stop."

    China leads the world in executions, even after you adjust for population. They executed the CEO of the company responsible for the tainted milk scare, they executed the driver that ran over the guy in Inner Mongolia and they'll execute these two assholes. They execute anyone that makes their country lose face and in this case, rightfully fucking so.

    Doesn't matter the age or what the person looks like. Some people just don't give a shit. On the other hand, it may just be that they haven't done studies for different ages, then people may be more inclined to help, especially with little kids. But even still...it's understandable to not want to touch the injured kid whether it squicks you out too much or moving her might cause more pain, but leaving her to die without even asking for help is fucked. What's more fucked up is the fact that locals saw her mangled body, blood and all and passes it by like common roadkill. And stop the China hate. Sure, thier community is messed up. So is every other place in one way or another. The exploding things have become really sad. Japan is just as messed up as we've seen, if not more so.

    Well the most of these think they would help but probably wouldn't in the actual situation. I think the most famous case is the Milgram study in which 100% of the participants SAID they wouldn't shock a puppy to death but about 75% of them actually did.

    This situation is a little different but it's the same that in a hypothetical situation we all want to think we're good people but when it actually arises most people don't act the way they say they would

    The retards who are calling out the Chinese being the only liars on such kind of survey. Tell me what ethnic group has not bs about this kind of stuff? You want to hear about an ironic survey?

    Here in the UK there was a survey on helping someone who publicly annonced suicide. Survey says over 80% would of helped. Reality, everyone got their camera phones out and started filming telling the guy to jump. He died.

    Meh, most self proclaimed suiciders are just attention seeking trolls me thinks. Last time I tried to help one of those type of people (top floor of parking garage crying mexican kid sitting on ledge) I basically wasted one hour of my life, felt very corny, and kid doesn't say one word to me the whole time...then his g/f comes and he steps down, and they proceed to ignore me and just walk away and I feel like a jerk for wasting my time... trolled so hard FUUUUUUU, never again.

    Luckily I called the cops beforehand so he got arrested shortly afterwards.

    Lol, is your childhood really such an addled, obscure mess? Kids can't be compared to housebroken cats, parents take them out to go shopping, send them to school, etc. The parents just lost track of the child, that kind of thing happens to every parent. Not saying that the parents don't have their own sins to own up to, but you can't just chain a kid down and bring them fresh bread and water every day, that's something that gets people arrested, or at least gets people put in very awkward positions for the media.

    (1-(37991+11175)/57242)^18 = 4.90531834 × 10-16
    which is one extra zero on the board. Lets not take into account the people that don't know what to do and a truck that is willing to drive over her as bonus.

    Chinese people just say stuff for image. Obviously the numbers on the board don't represent the real chinese people. They are too busy ignoring little dying girls to have time to answer pointless opinion polls.

    No, you should not. No matter how many people come by, it's still that 16 (or 14) procent chance that they would pass you by, so 0.16 * 0.16 *.... etc. Think of it like this, you have a two pies with 4 pieces, where one piece on each pie is black. The chance that you randomly pick the black one is 25% for each pie, so if you pick once for both pies, the chance you have of getting two black ones is 0.25 * 0.25 = 0.0625 = 6.25%

    Comment by Anonymous

    I think you're supposed to sum the geometric series of 0.16 (i.e. 0.16^1 + 0.16^2 + 0.16^3 + ... + 0.16^18). It'd be about 20% chance of being unlucky.
