A woman was caught on video jumping off of a pedestrian bridge over the Third Ring Road yesterday morning.

(Warning: The video below contains graphic content and may not be suitable for all viewers.)

In the video, which was recorded from the passenger seat of a car traveling toward the Supo Flyover on the outer circle of the Third Ring Road, a woman is suddenly spotted dropping off a bridge at the Yangxi Flyover onto the four-lane highway below. The car in front of the car with the video camera brakes quickly to avoid running over the woman, now lying in the middle of the second lane of the highway. Traffic in the other lanes continues to flow steadily. Meanwhile the passengers in the car with the video camera, after recovering from their initial shock, make a quick decision to call the emergency hotline 110 and report the incident. While the phone call is taking place, the car ahead pulls into another lane and continues on its journey. The woman is seen still on the road, in clear view of the camera, waving her arm about.

The video was posted to the Chengdu QQ forums yesterday afternoon and in fewer than 24 hours has garnered more than two dozen pages of comments.

The discussion comes hot on the heels of the Yue Yue scandal, in which a two-year-old girl was run over by two separate vehicles and left in the street while 18 people passed by, doing nothing. The incident quickly became a topic of discussion among Chinese netizens and eventually made international headlines.

Here are selected quotations from the comments made to the QQ forum. Rough translations by GoChengdoo.

If you want to jump, find a higher place to jump from. Doing it this way you don't die, you just slow down the traffic.

Why is everybody rushing by and nobody gets out of their car to make sure she's OK?

What are you doing just reporting it to the police and not getting out to help?

(In response to the above):

Probably they were all rushing to work, and besides, what good is getting out of the car going to do? Unless you're a doctor or know how to do first aid.

If you want to die, you can't get other people involved in it.

You guys, take a look at this video bearing in mind the Guangdong incident with little Yue Yue. I think that the sad thing is not the person who jumped but society itself—so many people who didn't even stop for a moment to get out of their cars to help.

All I know is what the article says and the video.

I'd guess she was committing suicide?

The article did indeed look a bit strange to me.  It seems that the reason WHY the woman died seems less important than how those people around her react.


What about you?  Are you not curious about HOW and WHY she died ?

You are not concerned at all ?

No. I'm sure majority of people would want to know why ALL those drivers ignored her more than the reasons behind that woman's behaviour. It would be equally important but I'd like to see the indifference as a BIGGER issue

I am grossed out. One of the reasons is that I just can't fathom how anyone can have the cool to sit in a car and film a person jumping off a pedestrian bridge into the maelstrom of the traffic bel ...

Cool point ................

I also wondered why this entertainment was being filmed  ............


As for people jumping onto motorways from a bridge in daylight ...........

The thinking person might have picked a shallow river  .............

With the ubiquitous onlookers as an audience  ...........


I suspect with all this current victim stardom ..........

We can expect a lot more victims and a lot more videos  ............
