A frantic call: HELP! HELP! HELP!

In the late afternoon of July 3, 2012 in Loudi City while walking his dogs in the park along Sunshuihe river, 27-year old Deng Jinjie jumps with clothes and shoes on into the swollen river upon hearing a frantic call for help. Two other concerned citizens jumps following him also for the same purpose.

Rescuers saved the family of three

Meanwhile a throng of people- oglers and kibitzers- lined up both sides of the river banks as news of the sad incident progresses.

Deng and the other rescuers were after a family of 3, a father and a mother with their 5-year old son who was being swiftly carried downstream floating in his life raft, an inner tube. Unable to save their boy from possible harm, the parents shouted for help from passers-by. They were able to pull all three members of the family safe from harm ashore.

Deng was missing

However, due to the darkening night and the rush of things, nobody noticed Deng’s whereabouts until all three members of the family were accounted for. Deng’s presence was nowhere to be seen. Perhaps he was overtaken by fatigue and was carried by the swirling river current.

Sister Qiuqiong arrived at the river, grieving

About past 7 p.m. sister Deng Qiuqiong arrived filled with grief. From the cotton mill where they reside, Qiuqiong rushed by car. She said she was told by people that her brother had gone into the river to rescue three people and while they were on safe ground they simply parted for home, not bothering to wait for their rescuer if he was alive or not. She added that the family members are heartless and that she’s bitterly disappointed at them.

Miss Fu explains the situation

Witness testified that the family of three swiftly drove away. Accosted by the crowd, “the person who saved you is still in the water, how can you leave?” The woman replied “None of my damn business”.

An eyewitness to the tragic event, a certain Miss Fu explains the situation …” they probably think this was caused by them, and are afraid of being held responsible”.


Deng died a heroes death and left orphaned his dogs and sister Qiuqiong

In the midst of pandemonium, some people dialed 110 and 120 while good divers volunteered themselves to fish for Deng. Rescue team from the police department upon notice of the call hurriedly reported to the scene, did underwater search at once for the missing Deng and found him but already beyond recovery.

Deng died a heroes death and left orphaned his 16 pure-bred dogs and his sister Qiuqiong. After work at a construction site, he would walk all the dogs along the banks of this river where he met his tragic death.

      What kind of manners do they have? They hurriedly left for home lest they'll got involved in the case. Is this a good reason? Thanks precy for your concern towards the hero who died saving a family for nothing, not even a word of thanks.

      That was just sad. They should have at least showed a little concern.
