A young woman from Jiangsu province was caught cheating on her husband after ordering a taxi online for her and her lover. When the taxi driver turned out to be her own husband, drama ensued. Weibo netizens seem mostly concerned with the practical details of this matter.

A 26-year-old married woman from Suqian city in China’s Jiangsu province got the shock of her life when she discovered that the taxi driver of the cab ordered by her and her secret lover turned out to be her own husband. The young woman, who goes by the name of ‘Pan’, had agreed to meet the 32-year-old Li (also married) in a hotel room after meeting him on an online social platform.

The event reportedly took place during the day of July 27. After the two lovebirds Pan and Li had spent the afternoon in their hotel room together, Pan ordered a taxi through the online taxi-ordering Didi app so that the two could go out to a restaurant. When they got into the car, the driver – who turned out to be her own husband – soon flew into a rage.

According to Sina News, the unexpected meeting led to a violent altercation as the husband threw a cup at Li, who then managed to escape. The taxi driver proceeded to take his wife home where she reportedly was badly beaten by him, after which he left.

Pan was taken to the hospital by her worried mother-in-law. The local hospital dismissed the young woman after a thorough check-up indicated no serious injuries.

The story became a hot issue on Chinese social media during August 3rd and even the number #1 searched for topic on Weibo (“女子与人偷情后网络约车”), where the news article was shared 1200 times and received 7700 comments within hours after its publication, after which it quickly spread on Chinese social media.

Many netizens do not comment on the fact the woman was cheating or that her husband beat her; instead they are more concerned about the practical details of the matter. Confused Weibo users collectively question how this unexpected meeting could take place in the first place.

As most Weibo users are experienced in ordering taxi’s through an app, they wonder how it is possible that the woman did not know the license plate or mobile phone number of her own husband, which are shown when ordering cabs online from apps like Uber or Didi Chuxing.

Didi Chuxing, often better known as Didi Dache, is China’s largest ride-hailing service. The app recently made headlines as it merged with Uber in China.

The Didi company completes over 14 million rides a day in mainland China. With 4.7 million people living in Suqian, the odds of a cheating woman running into her own husband as her taxi driver are already small – but the chances are practically non-existent when one knows that details about the taxi are known to customers when ordering the cab through the Didi app.

“I bet the woman was just not familiar with her husband’s license plate, or that she did not pay attention and that the man ordered the taxi,” one Weibo user speculates.

“But what about the husband, wouldn’t he recognize his own wife’s number?” another netizen remarks, as it not just the customer who usually gets to see details about the driver, but also the driver who receives information about the customer.

“This is just no coincidence,” another person comments, while someone says: “Maybe it was her first time using Didi.” As the story is going viral on Weibo, some netizens wonder if it is real at all: “This story just belongs in a television drama,” one Weibo user says.

Chinese Student Forced to Undergo “Fake Surgery” and Borrow Money While Lying on the Operating Table

The 17-year-old girl from Shaanxi underwent surgery for no reason at all, without her parents’ consent.

Published

The story of a 17-year-old girl who was forced to undergo a “fake surgery” at Shaanxi’s Ankang Xing’an Hospital has gone viral on Chinese social media.

One of the netizens to break the story on social media is the Weibo user @QinguanSihai (@秦观四海, 90,000+ followers), who posted about the incident on October 6.

According to the post, the incident occurred on October 4 when a young woman named Lu went online to seek medical attention because she was not feeling well. Since there was an available spot for a medical consultation at the private Ankang Xing’an Hospital, Lu went to see a doctor there.

While she was at the hospital in the city of Ankang, the woman allegedly was directly taken to the operating room and placed on the operating table after a short consultation; not for a medical examination, but for surgery.

The girl initially thought she was undergoing a routine medical check. As the surgery was already underway, the doctor stopped to let Lu sign some papers and then asked her if she could gather the money to pay for her medical procedure. When Lu protested and demanded to get off the surgery table, the doctor warned her that she was losing blood and that interrupting the procedure would be life-threatening.

Lying on the operating table, Lu called some of her friends to gather the money, all the while being pressured by the doctor that the money she had (1200 yuan/$185) was not enough to cover for the costs of surgery – which was still ongoing. The doctor allegedly even told Lu to get more money via the Alipay ‘Huabei’ loaning app.

Lu’s parents, who were contacted by concerned friends, soon showed up at the hospital as the doctor hastily ended the surgery. The parents, who were furious to discover their underage daughter had undergone a medical procedure without their consent, became even more upset when they later found out that Lu had undergone surgery to remove cervical polyps, while Lu’s medical reports showed that she actually had no cervical polyps at all. No reason could be found for their healthy daughter to have been operated on her cervix.

After Lu’s story went viral on social media, local authorities quickly started an investigation into the matter and soon confirmed that the story was real. An initial statement said that Angkang Xing’an Hospital is at fault for performing surgery on a minor without the consent of a guardian or parent. It was also recognized that the hospital has committed serious ethical violations. The hospital, located on 78 Bashan Middle Road (巴山中路), is now temporarily closed, and the doctor in question has since been fired.

Many Chinese netizens are angered about the incident, calling private hospitals such as Ankang Xing’an a “disgrace” to China’s healthcare industry.

This is by no means the first time that malpractices at Chinese local hospitals or clinics trigger online controversy. Various incidents that previously went viral show how some clinics put commercial interests above the health of their patients, and how some doctors think they can get away with abusing and scamming their patients.

In 2016, the death of the 21-year-old cancer patient Wei Zexi (魏则西) sparked online outrage. Wei Zexi, who shared his medical experiences on social media, spent 200,000 RMB to receive contested form of immunotherapy at the Beijing Armed Police Corps No. 2 Hospital (武警二院). The treatment, that was promoted on China’s leading search engine Baidu, was actually completely ineffective and the advertising for it was false.

By now, one hashtag relating to the Ankang incident has received over 270 million views on Weibo (#官方通报无病女生被推上手术台#), with other relating hashtags also circulating on social media (#家属回应无病女学生被迫手术#, #无病女学生被推上手术台涉事医院停业整顿#).

“This can’t be a real hospital, right?!” some worried netizens write, with others expressing the hopes that the medical institution will be severely punished for their wrongdoings.

Humans Fight at Beijing Wildlife Park, “Setting the Wrong Example” for the Animals

When the humans started fighting at this Beijing zoo, the animals followed suit.

Published

A fight between visitors of the Beijing Wildlife Park has gone viral on Chinese social media. The altercation happened on the afternoon of August 7 at the Wildlife Park in the Daxing District.

According to the WeChat account of the Beijing Wildlife Park, the fight erupted after two visitors had a dispute over something trivial. Their clash initially was only a verbal one, but soon turned physical.

A video of the incident published on Weibo by Beijing Life (@北京生活) shows that at least six people were involved in the fight, which included hair pulling, kicking, tearing clothes, and slapping. Even the people who were already lying on the ground still continued wrestling and kicking.

Not just children stood by during the altercation, many animals also witnessed the dramatic fight. Some netizens said the incident took place near the gorilla area.

Although local security guards were able to calm the fighting parties down and settle the matter, the violent altercation allegedly had some unexpected consequences.

According to the park statement (#园方回应动物效仿游客打架#), this was the first time for the park animals to witness such a fight between humans. For some animals, the event apparently left such an impression that they also started fighting together that same night.

The Beijing Wildlife conveyed how the humans had set a bad example for the animals, writing that the animals imitated them and that their fighting was “out of control.”

The park also writes that zookeepers stepped in, letting the animals know that “fighting is bad”, “really bad.”
