The Guangzhou Military District General Hospital revealed the toddler identified as Wang Yue, died due to brain and organ failure. Intensive care unit director Su Lei said “Her injuries were too severe and the treatment had no effect”.

As she lays with blood pooling, 18 people walk or cycle by and another van strikes her before a scrap picker scoops her up. The public are very sad on the lack of love and care of the people who saw the victims since they refused to give her immediate help despite her ordeal.
Moreover, it was learned the drivers of the two vans are already in police custody and now could face multiple charges for the victim’s death.
