Around 11 a.m. on January 27th, along the Xiangshan section of Fuyun stream, 14-year-old girl Li Yilin accidentally fell into the stream. Since she was wearing heavy cotton-padded clothes with a hot-water bag, the stream way was slippery and the current was very strong, she could not even stand up in the stream. Right at this dangerous moment, Xiang Wanhua, cadre of Xiangshan village on Fuyun avenue, and Chen Liwei, head of the militia company, were making instructions in the village on how to deal with the freezing cold winter in the future. When they were informed that someone had fallen into the stream, they rushed to the scene.
On the sight of the situation, regardless of the coldness, Xiang and Chen went into the stream with their trouser legs rolled up. Yet now, the girl was completely wet, and the freezing water has turned her body stiff. The cotton-padded outfit became extremely heavy after soaking in the water, so the two held up the girl together and struggled to the river bank. At the time, the County Police has rushed to the scene timely after they received the call, and together, the police and the people rescued the girl on to the ground.
‘We have not thought too much before we went into the stream. It was too cold out there for the kid, and every minute could increase the danger.’ For Chen and Xiang, helping others was not even a big deal within their responsibility.
On the way to the hospital, the policemen took off their coats and put them on the little girl and opened the air conditioner in the car to the maximum. It is known that, the little girl was born in Jiangxi and came to Yunhe not long ago. She fell into the river carelessly in the process of playing. ‘Saving people is the our duty as policemen,’ says Xiang Dezhong, a policeman in the County Public Security Office (Yunhe County Government Office).
