"I am a sophomore student. As a youth in the new era, it is my duty and obligation to save people in a critical moment." Pan Chenyu said.
On the afternoon of December 17, Pan Chenyu, a sophomore from the School of Management, took a taxi back to school from the airport. At 16:24, when the car arrived near the gate of the Green Valley Smart Industrial Park, Mingcheng, Dongqi Road, Changsha County, the driver suddenly experienced dizziness, headache, and numbness in his hands and feet, and he stopped the car in an emergency. Pan immediately realized the seriousness, called the 120 for emergency and quickly explained the situation. When she asked the driver about his emergency contact person, he could no longer speak but pointed his finger at the phone with difficulty. Pan motioned to the driver to adjust his breathing, not to speak reluctantly. After many twists and turns, she got through the driver's sister. At this time, the driver began to show signs of convulsions, sweating, talking nonsense, and tried to open the door and get out of the car. Pan worried that it would be unsafe to get on and off on the road, so she ran out to the outside of the driver's cabin, opened the windows for him for fresh air, and constantly soothed his nerve, telling him not to be afraid, and the ambulance would be there soon. At 16:37, the driver started to foam at the mouth. At this time close to rush hour, the ambulance was jammed on the road while the driver's condition seemed to be getting worse with vomiting appeared. Upon seeing this, Pan Chenyu dialed the 120 emergency number again. The emergency center told her to prevent the driver from being choked by a foreign body. Pan asked the passing SF Express deliveryman for help, and the two worked together to take care of the driver until the ambulance arrived.
The taxi driver was diagnosed with brainstem hemorrhage after being taken to the hospital. The situation was extremely dangerous and he was transferred to the ICU ward for immediate treatment.
Pan Chenyu said in an interview afterwards: "I am a class cadre in my class, and I’m a warm-hearted person. When my classmates have difficulties, I am always help them solve problems together. When they feel wronged, I will defend for them against injustice. When teachers needs a favor, I will be there on call. In my opinion, being “needed” is a happiness. Whether it is a classmate, a teacher or a student, or a stranger, people can encounter each other in this beautiful world is a hard-won destiny. The things I did for the driver today are all things I can do. I am very glad that I can help. If the situation happens to me again in the future, I think I will make the same choice as I made today."
Commitment to a mission and dedication are never slogans of nothingness, but codes of conduct integrated into our daily words and deeds. Student Pan Chenyu’s behavior well reflects the good moral sentiments of contemporary college students and is a vivid practice of the core values of socialism in the new era.
