Student who saved classmate in serious condition


16:28, November 20, 2012

A high school senior who risked his life to save a classmate from being hit by a lorry on Nov 3 remained in serious condition.

Gong Yuben, 18, a student at Zaozhuang No 2 Middle School in southern Shandong province, lost most of his right leg and doctors may be forced to amputate his left foot.

Gong was riding on the back of an electric bicycle driven by classmate Chu Haowhen when a lorry suddenly rushed toward them.

Gong pushed Chu out of the way and was struck by the lorry.

"I was driving on the right side of the street. Without any warning, the lorry suddenly rushed toward us. I tried my best to swing to the right, but the lorry was moving too fast. I only felt Daben (Gong Yuben) push me on my back and then I "flew" away. He could have jumped off first," Chu said.

Gong lost most of his right leg and underwent two major operations at People's Hospital of Taierzhuang District. He was transferred to Central Hospital of Zaozhuang Mining Bureau on Nov 17.

"The boy's physical state is very bad with severe anemia. There is infection and necrosis on the surface of the wound. There are still a lot of potential problems. The injury makes the situation very difficult to judge. Whether his left foot can be secured or not is still uncertain," said Xia Qing, 34, director of the hospital's orthopedics department.

As the class committee member in charge of sports activities, Gong enjoys playing basketball.
