Soul-less

A 2-year-old little girl, shopping with her mom in an outdoor market, wandered off into the market’s one-lane walkway.

A van runs over the tiny tot not once, but twice.

Then, one after another, 18 heartless passers-by walk past the crumpled toddler lying on the street.

Finally, seven minutes after the accident, a garbage-collector, Chen Xianmei, went to the toddler’s aid.

This happened last week in Foshan city, Guangdong province, China.

Yueyue's grief-stricken mother


The little girl’s name is Yueyue (“Little Joy”), the daughter of a young couple who are migrant workers — poor people from the rural countryside who defy the Chinese government’s population-control residency rules and leave the villages to work in the cities. In so doing, the migrants have illegal status. They number in the hundreds of millions.

Doctors say Yue Yue “is in a deep coma and clinically brain dead.” Her parents now face the agonizing decision whether to turn off Yueyue’s life support machine. The toddler might have been saved if a seven-minute procession of cyclists and pedestrians had not looked the other way.
The shocking incident was caught on Chinese state television, CCTV, and has stunned millions in China, with many saying their society – which has enjoyed 30 years of rapid development – is rotten and immoral. There is an outpouring of soul-searching and self-revulsion across China, with many seeing the callousness of the drivers and the passers-by as evidence that their country is losing its soul.
One netizen commented on what he called an ethical decline that starts with corrupt officials and ends with a “zombie” population stripped of its humanity. “Find those 18 passers-by, dissect their brains and see what medicine the Communist Party has been feeding us to make them like the walking dead,” wrote one widely forwarded post on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.
The case is quickly becoming a political issue and it is feared Communist Party officials have called for tighter controls over the reporting about the incident for fear of a public backlash.
Public anger already has long been festering over rampant corruption in politics and business, lack of the rule of law, pollution that is seeing cancer rates soar and the widening rich-poor gap, with many of the ‘spoilt’ siblings of the political elite – so called princelings – being singled out for extra criticism.
Both drivers who ran over Yue Yue have been arrested, but claimed not to have seen the little girl in the “dark” street. One driver said: “I was on the [cell] phone when it happened, I didn’t mean it. When I realised I had knocked her down, I thought I’d go down to see how she was. Then when I saw that she was already bleeding, I decided to just step on the gas pedal and escape seeing that nobody was around me.”
The Chinese government awarded good Samaritan Chen Xianmei $1,570; a company in the city has offered to donate $7,500 to Yueyue’s family and rescuer.
It is claimed that many people in China are hesitant to help people who appear to be in distress over fears they will be blamed. High-profile law suits have ended with good Samaritans ordered to pay hefty fines to individuals they had tried to help.

Here’s the video [WARNING: graphic]

There is something very wrong with China, a country where:

  • Its government official boasts of having aborted 400 million human beings, most of them girls;
  • Aborted fetuses are made into “nutritious” health food; and
  • Cats and dogs are confined in small cages in “fur farms” before they’re skinned to supply the fur collars and fur lining of more than half of the finished fur garments imported for sale in the United States.

Don’t take my word for it. China’s own people are saying their country is soul-less.
Please pray that the Light of Christ shine in the darkness for “Little Joy” and her grief-stricken parents.

“Little Joy” died shortly after midnight of brain and organ failure, Friday, Oct. 21, 2011.

  1. The Communist system reduces man to animal status.
    Of course she lay there like garbage.
    The garbage woman had enough sense to know the difference. How sad.
    America is heading in that same Godless direction.

     
  2. yep 4 more years of obama and america will have many more soul less zombies wandering around also….i saw a movie about chinese workers who live in the rural areas but work in the cities “the last train” the parents work and stay in the cities while the children are either raised by grandparents or other relatives and live in the country. then on the holidays the city workers rush to the train stations hopeing to get on one of the many trains… pretty good movie

     
  3. Just heart-breaking….how can people be so cruel?

     
  4. Dear Dr. Eowyn, this post made me cry. I will immediately offer my day to Our Lord for Yueyue and her dear parents and for the conversion of China to Our Lord. It is unreal that people can be so callous and evil, but praised be to God for the kindly man who helped this little sweetheart. It is hard to say anything when thinking about this incident-nothing seems to suffice. . . I think what we can do is to pray, and to pray with earnestness!

     
  5. GF,
    It’s going on in the United States, too:
    – 40+ million abortions since 1973
    – 4,000 each day.

  6. How heartless can people be? I’m mortified by their neglect to help this precious little girl! Nevermind that the driver not only once, but twice runs her over… 🙁
    She is is the Lord’s arms now… and I will be praying that some humanity is returned to the country of China… Just breaks my heart to pieces.

  8. Quick note, they weren’t shopping. The mother and father moved there a few years ago to open their own shop. The poor girl, playing with her brother in the store while her dad was running the store and mom was hanging laundry on the line, wandered outside and this happened just outside the family store. I have been following this story as closely as possible because it has torn my heart into pieces. God love and hold this family and the good samaritan. I would do anything to take her place.

     
  9. The fruits of leftism…

     
  10. the fruits of Godless Communism…you can lead the zombies to the
    Living Waters but you can’t make them drink. Sigh……..
    Rest In Peace,little one…

     
  11. UPDATE:
    “Little Joy” died shortly after midnight this morning of brain and organ failure. She is in Jesus’ arms now.
