A woman chasing a car with her husband and his alleged mistress in it was tragically killed in Zhongshan earlier this year. Footage of the incident made its rounds on Weibo this weekend.

A 44-year-old woman was tragically killed earlier this year in Zhongshan, Guangdong, while trying to catch her cheating husband in the act while he was driving his Mercedes with his alleged mistress in the passenger’s seat.

A surveillance video of the incident, that reportedly occurred on September 1st in Nantou (north of Zhongshan), was making its rounds on Chinese social media on Sunday. The video was released by Chinese audiovisual news platform Pear Video.

Footage shows how the Mercedes driver, later identified as the woman’s 46-year-old husband, slows down for oncoming traffic in a narrow road, when his wife runs up from behind the car and spots a girl in the passenger seat.

She runs towards the passenger side’s car door, and tries to open it, but the girl inside blocks the door.

As the woman keeps trying to pull the car door open, she follows the car as it slowly starts to drive away. When the driver suddenly hits the gas and speeds up, the woman is pulled along with the car, still holding the door handle.

Another surveillance camera further down the street captures how the woman first runs along but then trips and is dragged along under the car. She then falls on the street, where her lifeless body is left behind.

According to Chinese media reports, witnesses called for an ambulance but medical workers were not able to rescue the woman – she died as a result of being crushed by the car. The husband, the CEO of a local paint factory, later turned himself in at a local police station.

Three months after the incident took place, the case attracted the attention of netizens again when it became a hot social media topic this weekend. One video of the incident received 3,1 million views in a few days time.

“This just hurts to watch,” one commenter said: “If you don’t love each other anymore, just separate, there is no need for such a thing.”

Others said that the man was definitely guilty of killing his wife – some even argued he deserved the death penalty for his actions.

Violent confrontations between women or men and their cheating spouses, or their lovers, often become trending topics on Chinese social media. In November of this year, footage of a woman smashing her husband’s car windows also became trending online.

Various videos showing women publicly humiliating and beating up their husband’s mistress also made their rounds on Weibo last year.

“China should set up special laws for cheating spouses and their lovers,” some people on Weibo suggested.

Dozens of homeowners in Guangzhou, Guangdong, were angered to find out the locks of their apartment doors were broken during their mandatory hotel quarantine.

The residents had gone to a quarantine location after a positive Covid case in their building. Afterward, anti-epidemic staff had entered their homes for disinfection and to check if any residents were still inside.

The incident happened earlier this month in an apartment complex in the Liwan district of the city.

The incident first gained attention on July 10 when various videos showing the broken door locks were posted online. During the morning, the property management had conducted an ’emergency inspection’ of 84 households. The doors were later sealed.

The case went trending again on July 18 when the residential district apologized to all homeowners for the break-ins and promised to compensate them.

“What’s the use of apologizing?” some Weibo commenters wondered. “Where is the law? If this even happens in Guangzhou now and people in Guangdong put up with this, what else will they dare to do in the future?”

On Chinese social media, most comments on the Guangzhou incident were about the break-ins allegedly being unlawful.

Media reporter and Toutiao author Kai Lei (@凯雷), who has over two million followers on Weibo, said the incident showed that those breaking in “had no regard for the law.”
