In China, especially in the cities, if someone fainted on the streets, or if someone was knocked over by a car, you’ll find lots of gawkers and gloaters, but rarely will you find someone willing to extend a helping hand.
「在中国,尤其是在都市里,倘使路上有暴病倒地,或翻车捽摔伤的人,路人围观或甚至高兴的人尽有,有肯伸手来扶助一下的人却是极少的。」

Lu Xun on the rarity of Good Samaritans in China (1933). 鲁迅《经验》一九三三年 (http://shanghaiist.com/2011/10/20/lu-xun-good-samaritans.php)
