A toddler on the way to hospital following a traffic accident in Anhui Province, after his father failed to get assistance from a nearby police officer.
Baby Wenfang was run over by a hit-and-run driver in Fuyang City on June 30. His father grabbed the injured boy, and tried to find a ride to the hospital with the help of onlookers, state mouthpiece People’s Daily reported.
When they saw a police car nearby, they thought they had found help, but the officer said he was too busy. Neighbors of the boy’s family took photos of the policeman and his car, showing the license plate KA739, and uploaded them to the Internet.
Eventually, a driver agreed to take the 1-year-old, and his father to hospital, but he died in the car.
The police officer had to go to Fuyang Yinghou District Court on July 3, and was dismissed for lack of initiative, and causing social unrest.
