Tiananmen, And there is photographic evidence



There were no pictures that actually captured people being run over with tanks. The man in the famous photo was the only incident caught on film, he was not run over that day but his whereabouts are unknown.

An interesting fact I learned the other day is that the man in that picture is from after the protests, when the tanks were leaving the square, not when they were entering it.

It may not have been a tank but I have a photo of someone who was clearly crushed by something that definitely wasn't a students bicycle let's say


Not available in China, though...
