Q: Translation for the enclosed (url to the) video please? And note the warning.

WARNING: Part of this video shows the little girl in the street. The rest of the video, from what I can surmise, is the older woman who did try to help the child. She is being interviewed by a flock of press and it appears she is being offered a reward for her heroism. I am wondering if someone would mind translating, especially the red sign the woman is holding on her lap. It doesn't have to be word for word.. just the gist of what is going on. I'd appreciate it. If I'm understanding this correctly, it might be something good coming out of something so horrible.

From what I could read and understand the subtitles, it's like that:
The red pannel is a kind of "advertisement" by China GPS on which they show that they reward the old woman with 50'000 yuan for her heroism and good heart.

The guy wants to give the 50'000 to the old woman, but she refuses and asks the man to give the money to the child for her treatment. The guy replies that he has already given 50'000 to the mother. (Previously on the video, the same guy also wanted to give her the 50'000, but the old woman said that the money should be given to the child for her treatment).

Eventually, the old woman finally takes the money, and when she goes to the hospital to visit the child, she gives the money to the mother.

oh.. and baby steps Crimo... rewards from businesses/corporations all over the world will use the opportunity for a photo opp... it puts their company in a positive light. And really, why shouldn't they?

In this case, the bigger picture should be more focused on the fact that they are rewarding the good samaritan instead of punishing her or questioning her motive. That's huge in China. Believe it or not, most Chinese are human.. and are capable of feeling empathy and compassion. They aren't inhuman... they ARE, however afraid for their future. The Chinese courts have set the precedent, basically sayig to the Chinese people, if you help someone, if you stick your nose in somebody's business, even to help them out, you can be blamed and made to pay for it.

I think the former accident, like the Nanjing Old lady has illustrated the fact that your sympathy may turn out to be a nightmare which may cost your whole savings. Because people who do good deeds are not endorsed by the law in China . As we know, most of the people in china are too poor to get through the huge burden if they are accused by the relatives of the victim. So most of the people choose to be indifference and chilly. It's pathetic……

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
