Is it bad that I laughed even as I read the grisly details?
 
2013-06-23 10:05:41 PM
and I thought my wife was a horrible driver.
 
2013-06-23 10:12:37 PM
She already had a kid, therefore avoiding a Darwin award.

When I was going to school in Chicago 10 or more years ago I would go to local Japanese mall to buy gifts for my daughter, blind boxes, candy, etc. I would always stick around for an extra half hour so to just watch the parking lot. It was hypnotic. The things you'd see.... Wow, just wow.
 
2013-06-23 11:43:37 PM
Wow.

Just... wow.

I bet you she left the turn signal on, too.
 
2013-06-24 12:18:46 AM
wow
 
2013-06-24 12:19:06 AM
That's horrifying. The poor girl is going to need some serious therapy :/

Well, that kid is going to need counseling for life.
 
2013-06-24 12:19:27 AM
Let this be a lesson to everyone.  Never give car keys to a woman.
 
2013-06-24 12:19:46 AM
That's going to be one screwed up kid.

Yes. I cringed.

I feel so bad for laughing.... Way to perpetuate a stereotype Mrs Lin

Good luck everybody else.
 
2013-06-24 12:20:58 AM
On one hand, I'd like to make a joke about the driver not only being a woman, but also being Asian.

On the other hand, a 6 year old girl just witnessed her mother and father dying in a most horrific manner.

So conflicted.
 
2013-06-24 12:21:17 AM
Wow, that's Final-Destination-level absurd.

I know, if she drives anything like her mother she's farking doomed. Get her in to driving school as early as possible.

That poor child will require years of therapy.

Asian drivers, no survivors...

I don't know why but this made me laugh uncontrollably.

Qianjiang Evening News reported 41-year-old driver surnamed Lin, who was issued a driver's license in May, was practicing backing up her Lexus RX270 SUV into a parking space as her husband directed from behind, when she backed up too far and pinned him against the wall. 
 
According to the report, Lin stuck her head out the window upon hearing her husband's scream, and accelerated in an attempt to move forward. She however forgot to change gears from reverse to drive, which not only killed him instantly but caused her head to get stuck between the car and a wall along the parking space.


/fail on husband for standing behind his wife teaching her to back up, fail on wife for sticking her head out the window and jamming the petal to the floor in reverse, thinking it was drive, killing her husband and herself.  God..what an abortion.

Exactly.. thats pretty much the exact place NOT to stand, especially knowing your wife is a terrible parker.
 
2013-06-24 12:36:06 AM
This is why my wife refuses to help me with my parking

/I know my shortcomings
//Thats what she said!
 
2013-06-24 12:36:10 AM
That's so bizarre. Just two days ago, we caught CCTV videos of an Asian female driver forgetting to put her car in park when she got out of her vehicle to pay for parking... and it sped off with half her body hanging out of the door and it scraped along a high wall. Luckily, no injuries.

I work in security and can't post the video without losing my job, but holy cow. I love it when stereotypes prove themselves to be accurate.
 
2013-06-24 12:36:15 AM
Darwin weeps.
 
2013-06-24 12:37:44 AM
Jeez. Now that is an undignified way to die and/or become an orphan.

And I thought I was bad at parking. Guess the bar is lower than I thought possible.

I helped teach two Chinese grad students in our department how to drive while in college.  They hadn't even driven before in their lives so it was a bit scary, but they were really, really cute.

I once thought this was just a Chicago phenomena, but I've been to H-Mart in 3 states, and the parking lots were the same at all of them... as you say, hypnotic.

A guy did this to himself in KC this year - he had kids in the car too. He managed not to kill anyone else though.

Yeah, should of hit the break petal.

I treat female Asian drivers like drunks. With a drunk driver driving, there's no surviving.

She did, and predictably broke everything. What she should have hit instead was the brake pedal.

I doubt that the girl even knew what was happening....

"6-year-old daughter watched in horror from inside the car"

I've known several six year old girls, more than a dozen of them, and I can't say that any of them were capable of watching something in "horror". Most kids by that age still have a limited conception of death. It's more likely, "mommy lost her head. Will mommy stop working?" than anything relating to horror.  But hey, anything to dramatize the story.
 
2013-06-24 12:55:19 AM
Wow, I would've expected Fark to tag this as Obvious rather than Weird... Sad for kid though. =(

/sucks at parking, too, but not this bad
//only caused dents so far

No, she should have hit the flower petal.
