Q: If I see an elderly person fall down in the street, how can I help them?

ATTN: Chinese Law experts:

In light of yesterday's toddler-getting-hit-by-two-cars-and-no-one-helping news....

I know that the legal code in China makes it really easy for victims to sue people who help them (that didn't do anything wrong).... But I don't feel right just watching someone get hurt and then walking away as if nothing happened.

Is there anything I can do to help, whilst also making sure I don't get sued?

I dont understand the law but there is some weird no help stuff happening here. Yesterday on the bus I got up to give a very old lady my seat. it was the ones toward the front that sit a bit higher and she was struggling to lift herself up to sit down. I instinctively grabbed her upper arm and helped her into the seat. She looked at me a bit strangely and my partner tried to tell me not to touch or help because I could get into trouble.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
