Chinese police have arrested two drivers accused of running over a 2-year-old toddler who died a week after she was hit.

The incident sparked controversy last week. 18 passing pedestrians and cyclists ignored the little girl before she was helped, ABC reported.ABC News reported that 57-year-old Chen Xianmei moved Wang Yue out of the road and called for help after the girl was hit by vehicles in Foshan, Guangdong province.

Xianmei has been criticized by many in China who say she only helped Yue Yue because she wanted publicity.

Wang Yue's mother has refuted those claims.

The case will most likely proceed to trial.
