Customers scalded after woman throws hot soup at friend in restaurant

In the video filmed in a hotpot restaurant in Lintao, Gansu province, a woman threw a small hotpot onto a man sitting across the table from her, causing the soup to splash on nearby customers. Later an employee of the restaurant responded to the incident, saying that the two people in the video were just friends and the woman was angry over an disagreement. But since the woman did not turn on the heat of the hotpot earlier, the soup was not hot, and no one was injured. Nearby customers only had some oil splashed on their clothes and shoes. Other customers called the police, who arrived after the incident was already resolved. The local police station staff said that the matter had been dealt with, but did not disclose any further details. The video was filmed on April 29 and provided with local media’s permission.
