Recently, four youngsters from Henan province, with an average age of 19, were nabbed by police in Heyuan city, southeast China’s Guangdong province, after they forced two underage girls into prostitution.
According to local police of Heyuan city, on Sept. 18, 2012, a 13-year-old girl looking scared ran into a police station, crying that she was forced to prostitute and just ran away from the kidnap.
On the report, police soon launched a round up against the suspects at a residental building where the victims had been imprisoned illegally, and successfully subdued the four who attemped to flee with their lugagges.
The victims said, the young suspects had been tortuing them by tying them up, pulling their nails, pouring hot water over them and using other cruel ways, if they refused to cooperate.

According to a Weibo entry, at around 8 a.m., August 10, an elderly man passed out on a sidewalk on Huaihai West Road in Shanghai with blood over his head, but no one stepped forward to help him, prompting a furious white woman passing by the scene to scold at onlookers something like, “Fucking you Chinese, you should call ambulance!”
The post also said that the white woman placed a white tower under the old man’s head, and shed tears when seeing the blood on the ground. She then handed out some cash to onlookers too asking them to pay the medical cost for him.
The ambulance only arrived half an hour later, sending the old man to a nearby hospital. The medical staff answered the call from onlookers earlier that they had no other ambulance to dispatch to the scene.
It was learned, the old man, surnamed Qian, 87 years old, fell in a faint on the street due to his cerebral infarction, which led to an injury in his head too. Now the old man has regained consciousness and is safe.
It is another shameful public apathy case that Chinese people chose to stand by and ignored the helpless person again. As a user left a comment here, “Chinese always use the Peng Yu case and the Nanjing judge ruling as an excuse for not helping those in need. Helping others requires compassion and self sacrifice: 2 things which are hard to find in China.”

An arch at a tourism attraction of Hangzhou city suddenly toppled on Sunday morning, killing two women, and injuring three others including one in critical condition.
The arch standing at the entrance to the Qinghefang street decorated in the style of the Song Dynasty was built in 2001.
A preliminary investigation suggests that the wooden tenons on top of the reinforced concrete at two sides were seriously deteriorated that led to the mishap.
A woman, 58 years old, was killed right at the scene, and the other one, 62 years old, died on the way to the hospital.
The 62-year-old’s husband sustained serious injuries in his legs too and will need to undergo several surgeries. It was learned the tourist couple visited their son and daughter in law living in the city and expecting a baby at the end of the month.
