This can't be true

Shouldn't be but sadly is. From what I learned, Chinese people often don't help each other. Reason being the are afraid of scammers. For instance an old lady somewhere in northern China fell to the ground and when an innocent bystander tried to help her up. She then claimed he pushed her. Video obtained later clearly showed she was lying. I think this is one reason Chinese folk are resilient to help out injured people unless they are friends/family
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

maybe not a scam but the ol set of rules sez let the authority involve but not yourself...the new set of rules now is see something do something just like what we want the public to get involve in NewYorkCity to against terrorists...not ev'rythin is a scam in life   
a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...

So regretful to hear the bad news. I am a little confused toward the old man, when this kind of emergency happens, why did not he scream for help from those pedestrians. this kind of trick that to pretend to be this sort of helpless people for obtainning walkers kindness in order to defraudding money can be see in someplaces. so, for avoidding involve in this kind of trick, a majority of passer-by would improve their awareness of safety to skirt around the old man choosing go their own way.

Well said this time.

Many people especially elders scam the ones who are able to help them.
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Unfortunately this is true, I happened to watch this yesterday on the internet. The video showed an elderly gentleman unstable on his feet, trying to hold out for support, he was walking at the side of the road. Just as he was going out of sight he fell, it then show several passers-by slowing down to look, individual and couples,  some being very curious yet no attempt to help at all. Eventually the video shows man emerging and with caution moving towards the individual, it then show him using his phone. I cannot confirm the number of individual who looked on, then walked on, and offered no help or assistance, but I will say I was horrified at the number of people who failed this man. This is typical of China, I just hope one day these people do not find themselves in the same situation. Even to hold a hand and offer reassurance cost nothing but a little time. Lack of knowledge in [FA] first aid, is an excuse only, you only need so show a little compassion to other. hold the hand and comfort them.
