The Chinese folk tale called "The man from Qi who feared the sky was falling" is obviously related to the American tale of Chicken Little (aka Henny Penny) except the man from Qi dies from worry, whereas Chicken Little is either eaten by Foxy Loxy or, depending on the version, escapes to warn others not to jump to conclusions. It is interesting that in the Chinese tale it is a human being who dies whereas Chicken Little is an animal.
