Every now and then television viewers of CCTV News are treated to news of highway accidents in which truckloads of goods, like apples, oranges, beer, etc are strewn all over the road, and residents rushed out from their homes to help themselves to these goods while the drivers looked on helplessly.  Despite police warnings to these residents that it is illegal to grab these goods, and it is dangerous to be on the highway with fast moving vehicles, the residents carried on picking them and carrying them home.  One lady was seen on TV arguing with police that she had done no wrong helping herself to the goods!   There was even a case of residents catching live fish on the highway, fish on the way to the market but met with an accident.  And just today, a pig fell out of a truck carrying pigs to market; residents rushed onto the highway and tried to shoo the pig home, unfortunately the pig and a woman were killed by oncoming vehicle.  It's sad to see a dead woman and a dead pig lying on the road!  Interesting to hear from forumites, what it's like should similar accidents happen overseas, what do their laws say about helping oneself to unfortunate accident goods on the highway.

An isolated case, which could happen everywhere in the world, even in the west, not worth debating.
Believe it or not, it's true.

Has it never occurred to you that you are viewing the same stories cooked anew by CCTV? You keep us  ...

You are out of touch; those stories were recent, and the one about the dead pig and dead woman was just two days old; videos don't lie, unlike you!

Sorry, far rom isolated; many cases reported, with video, just that I can't report all on Forum, would take pages!

Try to get someone to share their IQ with you because yours definitely doesn't deal with facts ade ...

I suggest you watch too; you  are ignorant to suggest that those stories were decades old!
