A bus driver in the southwestern Chinese city of Chongqing has been hailed a hero for saving the life of a woman who fell critically ill aboard his bus.
WANG QING, Driver
“The passenger was foaming at the mouth. She lost consciousness, her whole body jerking convulsively.”
The woman suddenly fainted while traveling on the No. 235 bus.
After getting permission from the passengers, Wang did a U-turn, drove into oncoming traffic on a one-way street, and sent the woman to the nearest hospital without stop.
The woman was found to be suffering from brain disease, and thanks to the quick rescue, she has been discharged from hospital.
