Fall­ing dog lands res­i­dents in court

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

A pedes­trian who was knocked un­con­scious by a fall­ing dog in Guangzhou has filed a law­suit against the 10 house­holds liv­ing in the build­ing she was walk­ing past at the time of the in­ci­dent. A pub­lic hear­ing into the case was held at Baiyun Dis­trict Peo­ple’s Court on Nov 23. In her law­suit, Zhang Ping, 47, said she was se­ri­ously in­jured when a large dog fell or was thrown from the apart­ment block on April 15. She col­lapsed at the scene and woke up in the hospi­tal, where she ran up more than 400,000 yuan ($58,335) in med­i­cal bills. All of the de­fen­dants have de­nied own­ing the dog, which has not been seen since it ran off shortly af­ter hit­ting Zhang. A ver­dict is pend­ing.
