It’s his money. We saw you pick it up on the road,” replies a friend of the girl.

After the woman refuses to return the money, the student drops to her knees and tearfully begs for her allowance, which she later explained was the entire week’s allowance.

It’s so wrong for that old woman not to return the money,” the man filming the interaction can be heard saying.

The commotion prompted pedestrians to step in and help the girl get her money back from the woman.

We saw you picking up the money,” the man filming tells the woman. “It’s out of the question that you don’t give it back to the girl. Even if it’s 1,000 yuan, you should still return it, let alone 200 yuan.

Another passer-by offers the young girl to call her parents, to which she replies: “My parents don’t live with me. This money is very useful to me.

If the old woman had not returned the money, what extreme thing should the young girl do? I can’t imagine that. 200 yuan is a big sum for her. What a poor girl,” one commenter wrote.
