Many say China’s problem isn’t poor morals necessarily, but rather a system that makes “doing the right thing” a liability for the good Samaritan. This, however, may soon change.
In a landmark case in 2006, a 65-year-old woman in Nanjing, Xu Shuolan, was jostled while trying to get off a bus. After falling to the ground, she was helped up by Peng Yu, who was 26 at the time, who had also gotten off the bus. As other people passed by without bothering to help, Peng rushed to help Xu up, going as far as taking her to the hospital and even paying for her hospital bill.
