Juddering backwards and forwards, alarmed passengers leaped to their feet and left him momentarily before he jumps up and chooses his seat of choice.
Many who viewed the clip online – titled ‘How to get a seat on a train in China – were appalled by the behaviour of the commuters.
One person said: ‘Nobody cares that’s why they all moved away. He could have been dying and no one would have helped.’
While another said: ‘This is disgusting.’
The viral video has sparked the debate about whether travellers in the one of the biggest country’s in the world should help genuine victims.
