    Well at least the little girl didn't die. but getting hit by two vans (and numerous people not giving a damn) and having that many injuries; it sounds like she'll either die of brain damage or live with major disabilities when she grows up.

    Does anyone remember the story a few years ago about the infant girl who was dumped on a sidewalk?? I think she was dead, but people walked by ignoring her, like it was a McDonalds bag.

    the sidewalk right next to the baby looks different in some of the pictures. Some have a strip of what looks like sand and others have paving stones right up to the edge. So is this a doll or has someone toted a corpse around and posed it? Why would someone bother putting a bow in the hair if the baby was just going to be tossed?

    China is such a shithole of human rights. A friend adopted a baby girl from China about 6 years ago. She was found naked in a dumpster close to death from exposure. Whoever dumped her didn't even have the decency to wrap her in a scrap of cloth.

    As Chinese hit-and-run girl dies, passersby claim they did not see her

    The death of two-year-old Wang Yue has shamed China and provoked intense soul-searching over why bystanders did not come to her aid. Malcolm Moore investigates from Guangzhou.

    There are two black police circles on the ground at the Guangzhou Foshan hardware market.
    The first marks where two-year-old Wang Yue was hit and run over by a white van, and where she lay dying as 18 passers-by walked on, indifferent to her fate.
    The second shows where the 19th person, a kindly grandmother, picked her up and gently placed her out of the way of further harm. Her help came too late. In the early hours of Friday morning the little girl's heart stopped beating.

    Her death, and the security camera footage of people ignoring her, has deeply shamed China and provoked intense soul-searching over why no one came to her aid.
    More than 4.5 million people have left their comments on the internet, many of them pointing out that bystanders are often scared of stepping
    forward, in case they are sued by the victims and asking for a law to shield good Samaritans.
    "I do not know what happened and I do not understand the people who walked by. They are the worst people. Even if it had been an adult,
    they should have got involved," said her grandmother, Li Zhangrui.

    At the market where Little Yueyue, as her parents nicknamed her, lived and died, four open-fronted stores have a clear line of sight to circle number one. It seems unimaginable that the owners would not have noticed a toddler being run down on their threshold.
    But all four have the same story. No one saw the girl until they heard the screams of her mother. On the day of the accident, they said, it had been raining torrentially. "The rain was hammering on the metal roof of the market," said Tan Jingzhao, 27, who runs a shop selling bolt cutters and drills.
    Mr Tan's desk is fewer than ten paces to circle number one. He has a 16-month-old boy himself. But although he heard Yueyue's weak cries, he said he did not realise what was happening in the gloom in front of him, beyond his computer screen.
    "It was very dark that day and usually lots of the children here cry when there is rain and thunder. I had no idea," he said.

    Mr Chen, at the store opposite, Shao Yu Water Heaters, was one of the 18 passers-by. But he also fiercely denied having seen her. "We would admit it if we had seen her, but if you ask me 10,000 times, I would still answer you that I did not," he said. "We have had calls cursing me and blaming me and calling me heartless, but the truth is I did not see her," he said.
    At the time, Mr Chen had gone out from his store in search of his own two-and-a-half year old daughter, who had also wandered off. "I stepped out, but my wife found her on the other side of the store, so I just turned and went to her." he said.
    At the third store, the owner said briskly that she had been away at the time, while the fourth store explained the atomised world of the market.
    "We are all business people and we focus on business," said Chen Guiling, who sells hard hats and screwdrivers. "We do not gaze out into the lane outside, and I had a client at the time. My heart bleeds for the little girl, but common sense says you do not let a toddler walk around on the street."

    More than 300 stores sit under the corrugated metal roof of the hardware market, selling a full anatomy of building equipment and fixtures. Little Yueyue's parents, Wang Chichang and Qu Feifei, moved here from their home province of Shandong seven years ago, just after the birth of their son Wang Shuo.
    Little Yueyue grew up in their dusty ball bearing shop, watching cartoons on the shop computer with her brother and climbing a set of rickety stairs at the back to sleep above the store.
    "Little Yueyue was so cute. She loved to dance, even though at her age she cannot quite dance properly," said her grandmother.
    Neighbours said she was a perky and lively toddler and added that she was always accompanied by either her mother or her older brother.
    But tellingly, barely anyone in the area knew Yueyue or her family, and no one was there to look out for her.
    Although many other families live in the market above their stores, there is little sense of community. Just as in countless other hardscrabble suburbs across China, the residents are mostly migrants, drawn from all over the country.
    They have little in common, beyond their shared desire to make money and improve their lot. And in the evenings, they close their shutters and retreat into their lonely stores.
    "It is quite sad that we don't really talk to each other because we all sell different things," said a 50-year-old woman who would only name herself as Ms Hu, from a store selling abrasive pads a short stroll away from the Wang's shop.
    Last Thursday afternoon, on the day of the accident, Little Yueyue's mother said she picked her up from day care and left her unattended for a moment while she rushed to bring in the laundry from the rain.
    As she turned her back, her daughter wandered off, walking 100ft to a crossing inside the market, turning right, and walking another 100ft before she was hit by the van. Not one shop owner on the route noticed her.
    Mr Wang, Yueyue's father, said he was at a loss to explain what had happened. "Right now, I do not know what to say about their behaviour," he said, his face wan and his body stooped. "This world still has many more good people than bad. We will leave the police to decide what to do. We are trying not to think about what happened. It was a miracle in itself that she held on for a week."

    I think the only weather that would prevent me from seeing a small child lying right in front of me is a snow storm with 2-foot drifts. It just doesn't add up, but I also don't want to believe that so many people could be so heartless. However, the person who saw her and pulled her out of the road didn't have a better view of the child than anyone else, so to me it sounds like a lot of excusemaking by people who are feeling extreme heat by outraged citizens.

    I also read today that they arrested both drivers that hit her. I would hope that they feel some of China's rough justice.
