Good samaritan commits suicide after accident victim accused him falsely

Wow! This is a very sad case of good Samaritan gone wrong and makes people think twice before helping those in need. ....



Wu Weiqing, 46, from Dongyuan in the southern province of Guangdong, was riding his motorbike on New Year’s Eve when he came across an elderly man who appeared to have been knocked over, Wu’s widow told the Southern Metropolis Daily newspaper.Wu helped the man up and drove him to a local clinic, she said, where he paid 3,500 yuan ($580) in medical fees for him.
“My husband never imagined that the old man and his family would turn around and insist that he was the one who struck him down and demand that we pay hundreds of thousands of yuan in damages,” Wu’s widow said.
His daughter Wu Haiyan told the Guangzhou Daily newspaper that two days later her father said to friends and relatives that the old man’s family was demanding a huge sum for “medical fees.”
“My dad called me and said that he didn’t want to die, that he was being hounded to death,” she said.
“He felt vexed that he himself would be asked for money by the same old man he had helped, and he thought it better to die to prove his innocence rather than drag his family down.”
He gave her instructions for his funeral, she said, and hours later his body was found in a pond.
The family of the old man, surnamed Zhou, denied to local media they had requested huge sums and maintained Wu had hit him.
“If he hadn’t hit my father with the motorbike, why would he be so kind as to bring my dad to the hospital and pay for his medical expenses himself?” the old man’s eldest daughter told the Guangzhou Daily.
Authorities have opened an investigation, the official Xinhua news agency said.
