British Consul General Rescues Woman Who Fell into River, Chongqing, China November 17, 21:44

On the 14th of this month, a local British Consul General rescued a woman who had fallen into a river in Chongqing, inland China, and while there were voices of praise on the Internet, there were many people on the scene who criticized no one for helping her.

On the 14th of this month, a woman slipped and fell into a river at a tourist spot in Chongqing, inland China.

The footage, filmed at the site, shows a man jumping into a river and reseying a woman who is afraid. It was Consul General Stephen Ellison of the British Consulate General in Chongqing who rescued the woman.

On Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, while there are voices praising Consul Ellison’s courageous actions, he said that while there were many Chinese on the scene but no one tried to help women, he said, “Even though there are many horses, there are many foreigners who help. We have to reflect” or “If the Consul-General hadn’t helped her, there wouldn’t have been her life.” It’s pathetic, and there are many people who criticize it.

In China, there was an incident last month in which a woman was severely beaten and later killed by her husband on a street in inland Shanxi Province, and there was a series of criticisms on the Internet that no one nearby tried to stop it.
