You never know what will work when confronted by robbers. An Australian man in Shenzhen near Hong Kong escaped from a gang of thieves by feigning an epileptic seizure. He was lured into a trap by two women who said they would take him to a DVD shop, then was cornered by thugs in an alley and taken into a building. When the robbers found he had an ATM card they demanded the code, but the victim pretended to have an epileptic fit. The robbers took his cash and watch, tried to bring his fit under control, and eventually let him go.
