An unfortunate delivery man was beaten to the point of incontinence last Friday for arriving a few minutes late with a package.
In a surveillance clip that has gone viral online, a woman in Henan’s Zhuzhou city can be seen arguing with a courier working for Chinese delivery giant ZTO Express who arrived five minutes later than he said he would. That argument quickly escalates when the woman starts swinging at the courier’s head with an umbrella, landing a few blows.
As the courier, named Guo Junliang, tries to leave the scene, he is set upon by another man who hits and kicks him in the chest and abdomen.
Those blows apparently inflicted serious internal injuries with Guo being forced to go to the hospital, unable to control his bowels.
The woman later told reporters that she regretted her part in the incident, explaining that she had lost her temper with the courier because it was very hot outside and because she was on her period. She also claimed not to know the other attacker. Police are currently investigating the case.
Watch video of the incident below:
This is yet another example of why being a kuaidiyuan is such a terrible occupation in China. Despite being the main engine that keeps the country running at this point, couriers often work long hours for little pay, in all elements, and sometimes with only one arm. As much as China likes to celebrate its soldiers, they are the real heroes.
