Recently in Huizhou city, south China’s Guangdong Province, a couple has been behind several fraud cases by letting an 8-year-old girl getting hit by cars, and then blackmailing the drivers, police say. A vehicle data recorder shows the girl running up to get hit by a car while the couple stands nearby on the road.
According to police investigation, the 8-year-old girl is the daughter of the man and his ex-wife. The couple were furious and made a scene at the local police station after the driver called the police. The couple has been under criminal detention, and the girl was sent to a welfare center later on.
A local police officer said the suspects choose their fraud victims by looking for people who drive slowly on busy roads and are not familiar with the roads. After this video went viral online, many netizens criticized the couple’s behavior, which may take an enormous psychological toll on the kid.
