BEIJING - The death in Central China's Hubei province of an old man, who lay helpless on a downtown street amid a crowd for about 90 minutes, has drawn public concern over social ethics.

The 88-year-old man surnamed Li collapsed face-first on the ground as he headed home after buying bananas at a market in Wuhan at about 7 am on Friday.

The man was surrounded by numerous bystanders but none offered to help, according to the Wuhan-based Chutian Metropolis Daily.
