vortex2.71 writes: From the Seattle Times — "Wei Jinpeng is a fisher of dead people. He scans the river about 18 miles from Lanzhou, China, for cadavers, drags them to shore with a small boat and then charges grieving families to recover their relatives' corpses. It is a thriving business. While some of the 80 to 100 bodies Wei gathers each year are victims of accidents and floods, he thinks most end up in the river after suicide or murder."
