'YueYue,' Chinese Toddler Run Over in Street and Ignored, Dies

Getty/George Doyle/Thinkstock(FOSHAN, China) -- A bloodied toddler ignored by many passersby in southern China after she was run over in the street by two vans, has died, reports say.

Eighteen pedestrians and cyclists passed right by 2-year-old Wang Yue, nicknamed “YueYue,” before one woman finally stopped to pull the toddler aside on the narrow market street in Foshan, Guangdong province, and call for help.

YueYue’s death early Friday at Guangzhou Military District General Hospital was first reported by Chinese media. A cause of death was not initially announced.

The case sparked soul-searching in China over whether the nation’s morals had declined as the country chased economic growth.
