Chinese toddler dies after accident


BEIJING – In a case that has shocked and appalled China, Clifford Coonan writes, Yue Yue, a two-year-old toddler run over by two goods vans and mortally wounded in Guangdong province as 18 passersby ignored her fate, has died, doctors said.

The girl died from severe brain injuries she suffered in the accident.

A rubbish collector came to her aid after the infant lay on the street for six minutes, but doctors at Guangzhou military hospital were unable to revive Yue Yue.

Police have detained both drivers.
