Snow and the perils of being a Good Samaritan in China (better to pass on by) are top of the tweets right now. Here’s the rundown on Sina Weibo on Friday.
1. Beijing has its first snow on Friday. Netizens post photos of their snow scenes.
2. An explosion in front of a bank in Wuhan of Hubei province left two passersby dead and 15 injured.
3. A kindhearted young man in Jinhua city of Zhejiang province helped pick up an elderly man who fell off his bike and sent him to hospital.
BUT the elderly man claimed he was knocked down by the young man, and the young man was ordered by the court to compensate him 73,000 yuan ($11,468).
Netizens condemned the unfair legal system. Some even ridiculed the young man for being naïve, as this kind of thing has occurred several times before.
4. Netizens share what they would do if they had a time machine, where would they wanna go?
5. China’s National Development and Reform Commission hikes up electricity rates.
