A Jiangxi government official forced a man to carry him on his back to avoid ruining his expensive shoes while visiting a rescue site, according to People’s Daily.

Rain slammed Guixi City about 12:30 p.m. on June 20, flooding the streets, sidewalks and overflowing streams while children were sent home for lunch. After falling in water on their way home from school, one student drowned and another went missing. Government officials rushed to the scene but, before jumping to the rescue, the deputy director of Guixi City forced a lesser cadre to carry him piggy-back across a stream, so the director’s tan loafers wouldn’t get wet(ter). The official has since been removed from his position.

This isn’t the first time a Chinese government official has thought about his shoes before flood victims. A Zhejiang official was sacked in October after photos revealed that he took a ride on a villager’s shoulders because he didn’t want to get his shoes wet while visiting those affected by the high water.
