Yang Yuliang, president of Fudan University, expressed dissatisfaction with the attitude of students as he met student representatives Tuesday and discussed about what has been called the "Huangshan Event."

This refers to the event on December 13, when 18 students - mostly from Fudan - were rescued after getting lost at Huangshan, located in Anhui Province and known as "the loveliest mountain of China".

Zhang Ninghai, 24, a local police officer, was leading the students back down to safety when he suddenly lost his footing and fell to his death.

The incident led to heated online debate, as many members of the public accused the students of being indifferent to the policeman's tragic fate.

Yang said that he is not satisfied with the present moral situation of Fudan students and he hopes that the students would "learn a lesson" from this event.

"You should be calm when accidents happen, but not indifferent," said Yang.
