A beggar’s trick has been exposed by a passerby – a video of the incident has gone viral on China’s social media and shocked netizens.
On a street in Altay, a city in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, a pedestrian spotted a man without legs, lying on the ground and begging.
The passerby was astonished - he had seen the same man walking off a bus that very morning! He went up to admonish the beggar and then, with onlookers gathering, forcefully took off the man’s trousers. The beggar’s trick was then exposed. He had crossed his legs behind him and hidden his feet in his underwear.
