This happened in Loudi City Sunshuihe Park, China.

Deng JinJie 27, ran out of strength and was soon swallowed by the rapid river and drowned. Just as Deng Jinjies life was in danger the rescued family of three chose to leave.

A witness says:

"When the crowd stopped the family of three from leaving, the woman said 'none of my damn business' before driving away.

"What makes people bitterly disappointed is that, just as Deng Jinjie was in danger and whether he was alive or dead was unknown, not only did the family of three that he rescued not actively try to help, they also didnt stick around to see what would happen, instead indifferently choosing to leave."

Figured this was in China before I even opened the thread... :facepalm:

Mr.HappySilp 07-18-2012 07:47 PM

And that is why in some countries only mind your own business. You don't get the favor return.

Big 6 people again? How come all these shocking stories are coming from China these days. I hope that this courageous man will go to heaven for what he has done though.

JSALES 07-18-2012 07:58 PM

should have just left the three to drown

Eatman 07-18-2012 08:00 PM

wow, what an upsetting story

SB7 07-18-2012 08:01 PM

Good lord, that's disgusting news. That sort of apathy is beyond my understanding. Even though I can't swim very well, I would have easily risked my life to attempt to save his especially after what he had done for my family. Chinese news has been nothing but disappointment and embarrassment lately :/.

No such thing as Karma brah.

Can anyone verify the authenticity of the story?

Googled to find more info, only to find it on a link from Chinasmack.com

STOMP - Singapore Seen - Man saves drowning family, but they leave him to drown in return

A news website where all the articles seem like China bashing like crazy. Just playing the devils advocate. You never know when a story can be twisted around just to make it sensationalized. What if the guy saved the family, and the family tried to save him, but was just overcome by the current?

What if the picture is just of some random dude drowned? Who knows.

ToneCapone 07-18-2012 08:16 PM

RIP, but is there another source on this? not gonna trust a website with a fricken mood-o-meter.

Seems legit, but the news slants as it filters through various sites:

I found a link that sourced a couple Chinese sites:

Young Man Drowns Saving Family of Three, The Rescued Leave Saying It Has Nothing To Do With Them: To save a family of three from drowning, 27-year-old Deng Jinjie jumped into the river without regard for personal danger. However, he ran out of strength and was soon swallowed by the rapid river and drowned. Just as Deng Jinjie’s life was in danger and whether he was alive or dead was unknown, the rescued family of three chose to leave.

–—小™为•‘€家‰口溺亡 Ž•‘€…称€œ…ˆ‘屁‹€_„讯‘“_‡‡ ‘
Reported by Xie Nengwu
July 3rd evening, on the banks of the river in Loudi City Sunshuihe Park, when Deng Jinjie’s body was brought ashore, both shores were crowded with hundreds and thousands of city residents who had heard what happened. His two dogs were still waiting anxiously outside of the crowds for their master to take them home, but Deng Jinjie who loved his dogs as much as his own life will never again be able to take care of them.

An hour earlier, in order to save a family of three from drowning, 27-year-old Deng Jinjie had jumped into the river without regard for his personal danger. Unfortunately, he ran out of strength and was swallowed by the rapid river waters. What makes people bitterly disappointed is that, just as Deng Jinjie was in danger and whether he was alive or dead was unknown, not only did the family of three that he rescued not actively try to help, they also didn’t stick around to see what would happen, instead indifferently choosing to leave…

At about 6:30pm that day, when this reporter arrived at the scene, family and friends of the drowned rescuer were waiting on the riverbank for the results of the dredging, while a wooden salvage boat could been seen searching in the middle of the river. About fifteen minutes later, the deceased was dredged up and brought ashore, placed at the side of the river bank.

According to a woman surnamed Fu, when the incident happened, she had been taking a stroll less than 100 meters away. “I saw the family of three had been swimming in the river for some time. The couple were swimming in the shallow water dozens of meters away from their child, and the kid was around 5 years old, wearing a life ring/an innertube. The life ring kept traveling downstream. Perhaps seeing that their child was in trouble, the couple called for help from the riverbanks after unsuccessfully trying to save the child themselves.” Ms. Fu said, “Seeing the kid drowning, the young man didn’t even stop to think and immediately jumped into the river to help, but at that moment the river waters were rapid, and maybe because he had inhaled some water, soon he himself was in trouble.”

According to witnesses at the scene, on the afternoon of July 3rd, the rescuer Deng Jinjie had come to the Sunshuihe river banks to walk his dogs. Upon suddenly hearing someone crying for help in the middle of the river and without stopping to take off his pants and shoes, Deng Jinjie jumped into the river. Under his lead, two other city residents also joined the rescue. Not until the family of three was rescued ashore did everyone suddenly realize that Deng Jinjie, who one who took the lead in the rescue, had disappeared.

When people at the scene realized the situation wasn’t looking good, in the midst of the panic, some people dialed 110 and 120 while some people who were good at swimming went into the river themselves to search for Deng Jinjie.

The police of the Loudi City Fire Department arrived at the scene after receiving the report, and sparing no effort, they began the search. But having been underwater for too long, Deng Jinjie was already dead when he was brought ashore.

“To everyone’s surprise, the family of three rescued ashore by everyone working together not only didn’t go help the drowning rescuer, they didn’t even say a word of thanks and just left the scene.” With regards to the three people choosing to slip away after been rescued, witness Ms. Fu thinks they probably think this was caused by them, and are afraid of being held responsible.
After the incident, upon learning of her younger brother’s death, sister Deng Qiuqiong was overwhelmed by grief. “It was 7 something in the evening when I got the call. I rushed here from the cotton mill by car. Everyone told me my brother had gone into the river to rescue people, and after rescuing three people, that family of three simply turned and left, not even caring if my brother’s dead or alive. They are so heartless, just thinking about it makes me bitterly disappointed!”

Netizen “心丢了”: Deng Jinjie rescued the people crying for help in Sunshui River, but the three who were rescued rushed to drive away, and when those around stopped the car and said “someone is still in the water”, one of the rescued said a heartless “none of my business”. May I ask, do you still have any humanity?
Louxing District resident Kang Ling: I arrived at the scene at past 9 that night. A friend and I were taking a stroll at Sunshui River, when we suddenly heard crying, and went down to take a look. What makes me really angry is that, I heard that when the family of three was leaving, the gathering onlookers said, “the person who saved you is still in the water, how can you leave?” and the wife of the family of three actually said “none of my damn business”, and then they drove away.

Leaving a man to die, to me, is criminal.
