08:40, May 17, 2012

BEIJING, May 16 (Xinhua) -- A middle school teacher in northeast China's Heilongjiang province who was injured while saving students from getting hit by a bus has been honored as a national "role model woman," the All-China Women's Federation announced on Wednesday.

Zhang Lili has regained consciousness but remains in life-threatening condition, doctors from the hospital she was transferred to said Tuesday.

Zhang, a 29-year-old teacher at the No. 19 Middle School in the city of Jiamusi, was crossing the road just outside the school's gate on May 8 when a school bus suddenly veered toward several students.

Zhang pushed two students out of the way but was hit by the bus herself. Her legs were crushed and have since been amputated.
