Help! Help!

Help! Help!

This kid may be posing for a picture, but, if he had actually crashed, this is probably what he would say.

If you have a problem on the streets of China, knowing how (and when) to yell “Help!!” (in Chinese) could be very handy. Jiù mìng is a plea for assistance after you have been injured. If someone is bothering you, or something was from you, it would be better to yell “bāngbang máng”
