|Description||Shanghai samaritan's bravery during an earthquake moves Internet followers
On a winding driveway in high in the mountains, Shanghai tourist Han Shengbiao put aside his personal safety without any hesitation to save others when the Jiuzhaigou earthquake happened.
Han is a 43-year-old good samaritan whose brave deeds during the earthquake have moved many people following his exploits on social media.
The tourist bus carrying Han's family and another 17 tourists was hit by a falling rock on its way to the InterContinental Resort Jiuzhai Paradise at 9:19pm on August 8.
"My first reaction was it's a landslide," Han recalled.
Han was safe from any injury thanks to his seat position, but his wife Qin Yanli was thrown against the window and suffered a painful rib and skin wound. Having ensured she and their 11-year-old son were OK, Han turned to the task of saving others.
"I just hope more people can be alive at that moment," he told Shanghai Daily.
In fact two people were killed and eight seriously injured in the bus accident.
There were calls for help from the bus, and Han stepped on stones to climb back into the bus through windows because the door was destroyed. One man in his 20s was lying down on a seat, and was not breathing when Han found him.
A female tourist and her daughter were pinned by a big stone, which Han and three other tourists tried to move.
"It is very dangerous because falling stones can hit us at any moment," Han told Shanghai Daily. "I was very nervous but saving them was the most important thing."
