A couple from Dianbai county in Guangdong Province walked completely naked in the street on Sunday along with their children in an attempt to seek help from pedestrians in paying the hospital bills for their 2-month baby, according to Nanfang Rural News on Tuesday.
According to local public security bureau, the couple, who gave their surname as Zhang, came from Henan Province to work at a salvage station in Dianbai county three months ago.
Several weeks ago, the couple sent their 2-month-old baby to the Dianbai Maternal and Child Health hospital. Last Sunday, the couple found out that they owed the hospital 1,500 yuan ($235) when their baby was discharged.
Finding the bills unaffordable, the couple decided to walk naked in Shuidong Renmin Road along with their two young children, hoping they would attract pedestrians who could help them in their plight.
After the mediation of the police, the hospital has remitted the treatment fees and discharged their baby.

The world is like a huge forest, so you can always find some birds you are not familiar with. Be inclusive and think for them as well.

The reason why people choose the extreme way is that only in this way can their appeals be settled. But what makes it rediculous is that China, as the world's second largest economy, cannot cover medical assistance for its people. Shame.

in Hubei rural areas, farmer 's medical insurance can covered around 70 %  of total cost, how is that?

there are some areas in China still take time to carry on the medican insurance plan, I am pretty sure it won't be that long.
