The recent death of a 28-year-old bridesmaid in Wenchang, Hainan province, from being forced to drink too much alcohol at a wedding banquet has stirred up public debate, the paper.cn reported on Monday.

A video clip widely circulating on Chinese social-media sites shows the woman in a black dress being egged on into drinking baijiu at the ceremony. In the video, she later appears to lose consciousness, and is rushed to local hospital. Unfortunately, the emergency department fails to resuscitate her.

A preliminary investigation by local police shows the woman died after consuming too much alcohol, which caused vomiting and choked her to death.
According to the report, the family of the bridesmaid and the newlyweds are negotiating the liability and related compensation issues.

The incident has become a controversial topic on the internet over wedding traditions, as well as who should be held responsible for her death.
In China, drinking baijiu is usually considered an important part of social ritual, especially in business dinners and wedding banquets. But sometimes it just goes too far as the guests have to follow the hosts' orders no matter how reluctant they are.
And this also puts too much social pressure on women as many men start crossing the borders in physical contacts, using indelicate language and forced drinking.
While some internet users said those who forced the bridesmaid should take full responsibility as they pushed her, others believed the woman should also be blamed as she was an adult and could have chosen not to drink.(news from weibo)

The pure girl had not enough social experience and know little about alcohol culture! ----------It was a joke for bridesmaid to drink so much Baijiu.  In the opposite, she would be thought as well-educated lady if she had refused the offering of drinking!
Childish pure  mindset can simplify your life which let you live in a light way! Without man-made troubles you will work in high efficiency!
