A 35 year old Macau native working in Guangdong’s Foshan real estate sector tragically killed a 20 year old girl when he attempted a practical joke in order to get her attention, ifeng reported yesterday.
On October 16, He Moufeng went to the water reservoir at Baihualin Club with a friend and spotted the beautiful Junjun by the side of the reservoir. Neither him nor his friend knew who she was, but he wanted to make her laugh and get her attention. In order to do this, he came up behind her, hugged her around her waist and dove into the water. However, after he was submerged in the water, he lost her hand.
After coming up for air, He tried to look for her, but quickly realized that Junjun had not come up for a long time, so he continued searching. Tragically, he discovered her unconscious and paramedics were not able to revive her either. Junjun’s cause of death was confirmed as drowning.
He turned himself in and pleaded guilty, his remorse lessening his sentence. He was even able to gain understanding from the victim’s family, after personally consulting with them with regards to fair compensation, which was decided at 3,860,000 RMB. The Guangzhou court also sentenced the Macau businessman to one year and six months in prison, with two years of probation.

Lets entertain the thought that he did what he did, and was able to keep hold of her hand and they both made it safely to shore. Would she actually think it was a joke regardless if she had the ability to swim (which I would wager that MOST Chinese don't know how to). AS for me, I would go nutty on someone pulling such a stunt on me or someone I loved in front of me ESPECIALLY if the victim was not able to swim.

A tragic accident? If he was a foreigner it would be called what it was , murder. He killed her, that's it. Even if his stupid story was true (how can anyone believe such rubbish) he still threw here into the water causing her death.Why on earth would someone do something so extreme and violent to get another person's attention? If grabbed her breasts/ass and said I just wanted to get her attention would that not make me a sexual deviant? Money makes people believe the dumbest stories. How dare the family sell their daughter's life.
