Earthquake victim committed suicide to give the survival opportunity to others

My dear friends, is my blog for China's solar energy industry, and I did not plan to talk about other issues here. But since the 8.0 magnitude earthquake hit Wenchuan China, all Chinese people have been following the rescue operation progress, and hundreds of thousand people went to join the rescue and disaster relief operation, the whole nation is moved by lots of heart-broken stories, and I would like to share such stories here with you.

Chinese governemnt agencies, companies, and individuals are donating to help the victims, but over ten million people are affected by the earthquake, the death toll is 41,353, and 274,683 people are injured, and 32, 666 people are missing by May 21st. Especially many children lost their parents, and many senior citizens lost their sons and daughters. These victims need our help, and I hope you may forward the earthquake information to your friends, and I hope you may pray for them, and help them in anyway if possible.

Now I would like to tell you a story about the earthquake.

The earthquake happened on May 12th, the rescuers came to Yingxiu, Wenchuan on May 15th, and found a old lady under the collapsed building. Yunfen Yang is 52 years old, and she is a retired doctor. 30 fireman and soldiers tried to save her with their bare hands, they did not have any tools, but it is hard for them to remove the collapsed things. At 9:40 am Yunfen Yang told the rescuers that "Please give up me, it is dangerous here, and go to rescue others." The rescue doctor told her that they would never give her up. Then Yunfen Yang took the broken glass with her right hand, and cut her left wrist first, then right wrist. The doctor tried to stop her, but Yunfen Yang is out of her touch. When the doctor shouted "No, and please do not" and cried, Yunfen Yang swallowed her gold ring also to end her life and to give the survival opportunity to others.
