As a journalist with over 15 years of experience, I've seen and covered my share of tragedies, but this one is truly one of those I'll be talking about for a long time. A Chinese woman was so enraged after a fight with her husband about his mistress that she allegedly hit the other woman head-on with her car while the woman was riding her bike with her child on the back. As if that weren't enough, after paramedics pulled the unconscious child from underneath the car and into an ambulance, Zhang Shih made every effort to stop the vehicle from getting to the hospital. 

How did she do that? She apparently got naked and laid on the ground in front of the ambulance and wouldn't budge even as she was surrounded by policemen pointing guns at her, as reported by the Daily Mail.

If Zhang was looking for revenge for her husband's alleged love affair, I guess she got it. Her rival is in critical condition and her little girl is dead. Zhang, an elementary school teacher and mother of two, is now facing murder and attempted murder charges. If she's found guilty, she faces the death penalty. And, for what? For a man? How pathetic!

Don't get me wrong, I love my husband to death and I'd be destroyed beyond belief if I ever found out he was cheating on me. But from that to murder? Sorry, that's just way too much! The only time I'd consider hurting another human being would be if I catch him or her in the act of harming one of my children. Otherwise, no amount of jealousy would drive me to murder.

Then again, I'm not really the jealous kind. I mean, I do get jealous here and there, but at the end of the day, as I've told my husband time and time again, if he decided to cheat on me and I find out, all he's telling me with his actions is that he no longer wants to be with me. And there's no reason--not even my children--why I would want to stay with someone who doesn't want me by his side.

What's the worst thing you've done or you've seen other women do in a jealousy fit? Leave us a comment with your thought.

I knew a woman who took off with her children so that her ex could no longer see the kids after she found out he was cheating. I talked her into changing her mind about that...she was punishing her own children for this man's actions??? Not right.
There is no man in the world worth me giving away my life.She will sit in jail and that man will move on with his life eventually.She is really a sick woman.

Lorena Bobbit cut off her husband's penis after he cheated.  That is the only way you will ever teach a man a lesson.  Roxana, I was disappointed that you used 2 women pulling hair to illustrate your article.  I expected to read silly article or a humorous story.  I was horrified when you went on to report a child had died because of a jealous rage.  That's a little more than hair pulling and a very bad choice in illustration.  It's no joke.  Men who cheat are pigs.  Women who keep cheaters need to stop complaining. 

are you kidding me, the cops should have dragged that woman by her hair out of the way, so the ambulance could have proceeded to the hospital. they were running around like they had no recourse, to move her. Makes me wonder, if the child could have been saved, if they acted earlier in moving this woman out the way, she's lucky it i was not the driver, that b---ch, would have been a pancake, real talk.
