A truck loaded with mandarin oranges rolled over on a highway near Lanzhou, the capital of northwest China's Gansu Province, on Jan. 4, 2014. Half an hour later, another truck full of the same fruit also rolled over on the same section of highway.
The road, as a result, was covered with over 30,000 kilograms of mandarin oranges.
Though there were no injuries or fatalities, hundreds of local residents rushed to the scene stuffing the fallen fruit into their bags.
The police and local officials tried to stop the crowds but ultimately failed. One police officer eventually had to fire his gun in order to deter the madness that lasted for about six hours.
One of the truck drivers managed to recover around 1,000 kilograms of fruit.
This is not the first instance of public looting that has happened in China. There have reportedly been 26 similar cases since March 2013, dubbed by the media as "Chinese style looting".
