An elderly man died in Zhengzhou Province on Sept. 9, after he slapped a young man four times for not giving up his seat on the bus.
The driver told the men to get off the bus after the argument started, and immediately stopped the vehicle when he realized the old man had collapsed.
Paramedics attempted to resuscitate the man in the bus, but gave up after 40 minutes. He had no external injuries, and is thought to have died from a heart attack or stroke, according to 163.com.
Many bloggers criticized the old man for losing his temper about something so trivial, while others said the youth should’ve been more considerate, and that the man’s life was more important than a bus seat.
