 posted on a Facebook group page shows the man in a wheelchair getting off a route number E32 bus operated by Long Win Bus at Cheung Hong Estate in Tsing Yi. After the bus left the station, he suddenly got up from the wheelchair and walked across the road while pushing it. After watching the clip, many netizens assailed the man for allegedly pretending to be disabled, noting that the video clearly shows there is nothing wrong with his feet. It is suspected that he disguised himself as a cripple so he would only pay the concessionary HK$2 fare for the bus ride he took.

Local media searched for the man and, after finding him, interviewed him. The man insisted that he is a disabled person and took out a document to prove his status. He said he has been suffering from displacement of an intervertebral disc since he was injured at work. As such, he said, he is entitled to concessionary rates at public transport, although he lost his Octopus card for people with disabilities last week.

He probably cheated the insurance company. I don't think he could get away with that.
