Chinese Samaritan “Left To Drown” After Rescuing Boy


Chinese have been outraged by the case of a man who was left to drown by the family he saved, with the rescued boy’s mother saying his fate was nothing to do with them.

According to local media reports, a 27-year-old man out walking his dogs in China’s Hunan province came upon a family swimming in a local river who were in some difficulty as their 5-year-old son had been swept away.

Unable to rescue him themselves, they called for help, and the man responded by bravely leaping into the fast flowing river to rescue the boy and his family, aided by two other bystanders.

However, after rescuing the boy he himself was swept away and drowned to death.

A sense of tragedy soon turned to incensed outrage after it was reported that the boy’s family promptly left the scene as soon as their child was safe, leaving their rescuer to drown, and when questioned by locals they merely replied it was “none of their business.”

Chinese online, perhaps reminded of certain other recent events, wasted no time in venting their rage and condemning the “heartless” family.

Supposedly the family did suffer a change of heart and weepingly made a rather belated display of sorrow and gratitude at his funeral.

    I wonder what the man would have done if he knew they'd leave him to drown?

    He'd have probably still done it. I mean, he saved a child. We don't know how thankful that child is to the man. Fuck, now I'm crying some manly tears.

    I don't think it's normal to give your life away for someone you do not know even if it's a child. What if the child becomes a bully, thief, drunkard, molester, murderer or some other fucked up piece of shit when he grows up? Better not take any risks especially if you're doing well in life.

    If the child has parents like that they will probably try to change the story to make it seem like they were in the right and the brave man who saved the kid was the asshole, ungrateful pieces of pig shit they are. The parents that is.

    That's exactly what nature was trying to do, sweep the shit, sadly the man did a heroic deed and was taken in exchange.
    May many good things happen to this mans soul.

    A hero drowned to save the offspring of shit. This is an instance where I hope against hope that the concept of "pay it forward" affects the boy deeply as he grows up.

    this must be a misunderstanding.

    the article says "according to local media reports".

    I don't think a reporter was on the scene, direct live, during the action. This must have happened in some shithole in the middle of nowhere.

    So this is just the work of some wannabe asshole reporter who tried to gain some recognition by writing nonsense tabloids.

    if they couldn't help their own son, how could they have helped a larger man?

    you don't "help" a drowning person by getting in with them, you toss them a flotation device. barring that, you tie some quick knots in a rope and toss that to him. or just use a rope with a loop in it, and have the drowning person wrap it around them.

    now, the people were bad for leaving and not caring, but if they were too stupid to help their own son, i'm not sure they would have been much more help to this guy.

    You are talking out your ass. The age-old nature versus nurture debate has yet to be fully explored and it is currently unknown which of the two is more true over the other.

    Stop claiming your opinion as fact dumbfuck.

    .. What happened to you as a child? My whole family is a bunch of selfish pricks; I wasn't taught to love, only to not fuck up. I actually feel bad when I hurt someone and have a strong inclination to help and protect.

    Say that to the Silverback Gorillas who teach their young to warn others about snaring traps from poachers. Helping is only labeled as "Good" it is a concept purposed in society by humans but "good" has always existed since the dawn of life. You can either assist or destroy and this family only destroyed.

    There is so much fear to help people in China...quite sad really. People fear being punished for helping others or fear some dodgy compensation is needed from saviours (being Triads etc.).

    This is what happens when your government is corrupt as fuck. Keep safe the rich and influential but screw the average guy and the poor. Talk about capitalism to it's extreme.

    You mind your own business, we mind ours. Unlike you Americans always interfering with other country internal problems when you should be tending to your own country problem.

    Look where that has taken you...mountains of debt and negative deficit unlike our mountain of wealth in our federal reserve.

    I went to China to visit my relatives and i could go to SC no problem it wasn't blocked by any firewall. People need to give China a rest i don't get how people are so negative and troll online. I went to Japan and i had a wonderful time over there, everyone is super freindly. I got lost and asked this girl for help, she took me to the train station, brought my ticket and waited with me for the train.

    Another thing i will add is this. We went out to dinner, me and my freind + her and her freind. Went to a nice small japanese place in a alley way. Anyways her freind had too much to drink and was totally wasted ( Punked into a plastic bag) She couldn't stand up so we helped her walk out to get a cab. An elderly japanese guy approached us and i thought he wanted to help as well. He ducked down, took a photo and walked off. I was thinking WTF, do people actually do that? Anyways her freind said it's kinda normal here. I am not here to judge but that is kinda selfish as well don't you think?
    Yep those are my stories from my trip to Japan, i have plenty more to tell! I do love the country and will head back there again next June!
