Forlorn and forgotten, this disabled man awaits rescue by police after a cold-hearted cabby booted him out of his taxi in the middle of a busy motorway.
The unregistered taxi was taking Wang Feng, 38, to see his brother in Baojing county in south China’s Hunan province.
Halfway there the traffic began to pile up and the driver began to grumble that it would cost his passenger more than he had originally stated.
Feng said: "I sensed that he was a shyster. I was going to take the bus but one was cancelled and I didn't want to wait around for an hour so I flagged down this guy.
"As we were travelling along the road he suddenly began griping about the slowness of the traffic and how he was losing money and would have to up the fare.
"I told him we had agreed a price and, besides, I did not possess any extra money. He got very agitated at this and began to curse and swear at me. Then he stopped and hauled me from the cab and dumped me at the roadside with all this traffic streaming by.
"I can barely walk and it was so busy that I thought I would be run over if I attempted to cross the road. So I just sat down and waited to see what would happen."
Luckily a passing motorist saw his plight and telephoned into police who came to his rescue. The hunt is now on for the rogue driver who dropped him off.
Feng added: "The police were very nice to me. They even gave me a lift to my brother's house."
