A lorry driver ran over a five-year-old boy – and then reversed over him to make sure he was dead in an apparent attempt to avoid footing hospital bills for the child.
The sickening incident happened in Luzhou, western China, when driver Ao Yong hit Xiong Maoke as he left home to walk to school.
Witness Zhang Shifen said: ‘I saw the truck move back a little and then move forward again. Xiong became wrapped up in the wheel and the truck continued forward another ten yards.’
Other passers-by said the lorry driver jumped from his cab after hitting the boy. They claimed Yong then asked: ‘How much shall I pay?’
Police said Yong, a 35-year-old lorry driver from Luxian, argued with the boy’s family about the size of the damages for seven hours.
After the latest incident, Yong denied reversing over the boy to kill him. Last night, police and government staff insisted Xiong died on impact.
Their investigation ruled that Yong was the first person to call the police after his truck hit the boy in the village of Yunfeng, in Luzhou, Sichuan province.
They said his body was not removed immediately because angry villagers were demanding instant compensation from the driver.
In heartrending scenes, the boy's mother sat shocked next to the covered body of her five-year-old son.

Gilalah rakyat negara China.
Aku fikirkan kejadian minggu lepas sedikit sebanyak memberi kesan positif terhadap nilai moraliti rakyat China yang rata-ratanya seperti tidak wujud. Tetapi nampaknya mereka masih lagi kekal dengan sikap bertuhankan wang tanpa memikirkan orang lain walaupun budak kecik lagi.
Walaupun china merupakan salah satu kuasa ekonomi dunia tapi masih ramai rakyatnya yang miskin. Kos perubatan yang tinggi dan kenapa china tak memberi subsidi terhadap kos perubatan..pelik2..sape2 leh beri jawapan..
Seriuslah, banyak yang perlu dilakukan oleh China jika mereka benar-benar ingin menjadi kuasa dunia kelak.
