A video of passersby ignoring a woman hit by a car is going viral on Chinese social media


A video making its way around Chinese social media appears to show multiple passersby ignoring a woman lying in the street after being struck by a car, Shanghaiist reported

The video has been viewed more than 6 million times on Weibo, with more than 15,000 comments, many of them lamenting China's lack of a "Good Samaritan" spirit.

The authenticity of the video could not be confirmed. The location of the incident and the woman's current state of being are unknown. 

WATCH | People do nothing as an injured woman lies in the street.

At the beginning of the video, the woman is seen waiting in the middle of the crosswalk as cars pass by. She's subsequently blindsided by an oncoming taxi and falls into the street, where she lies nearly motionless. Nobody who witnesses the accident appears to react as the taxi continues driving.  

Cars continue to drive past her body in the road until, shockingly, an SUV is seen running the woman over with both sets of tires. The driver then gets out to check on the woman, along with another pedestrian.
