Woman helps old man who fell on the street in Fujian, China


A kind woman helped a pensioner get up when he fell at a community entrance in China.

Footage shows the woman pulling the old man to his feet and helping him walk in Fujian province on October 11. The woman was heard saying ‘I didn’t make you fall on the ground. I’ll pull you up okay?’ as she filmed video evidence of her deed.

The old man said he could not remember where his home was so the lady decided to contact the police for help and left him in their care.

Pengci, which literally means ‘breaking porcelain’ in Chinese, are scams in which con artists typically fake injuries to extort money from kind passers-by. The practice has become pervasive in China and has discouraged would-be good Samaritans from helping other people in need.
