A senior citizen suddenly fell unconscious on Wuhan Fruit Lake Pedestrian Street on Wednesday. Because the situation was unclear, onlookers dared not step forward to help him. A young man, about 1.8-meters tall, voluntarily offered help to perform CPR, delivering chest compressions and giving artificial respiration for about 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, there were no vital signs when the elderly person was sent to the hospital. The young man’s name is Wu Yifan, a PhD student at the Second Clinical College of Wuhan University. “Saving others’ life is of paramount importance. Nothing is more important than human life,” said Wu, adding that he was deeply touched when others handed him towels and bottled water when he finished trying to save the elderly person.
