Sad News

I don't know if you remember, but in another post I mentioned that I witnessed an accident at the West Campus in which a student was struck by bricks that were blown off of a building during a sandstorm. Yesterday I found out that he died that day. I was really saddened because he was only 20 years old. It's so sad that that happened, and I'm sorry that I saw it. All of that blood on the ground and the student surrounded by people while he was having seizures and spasms on the ground. It's something that I'll sadly never be able to forget.

I also learned that another student died on that day. Apparently he was sitting at his computer for a very long time surfing the internet and watching movies, and when he got up from his computer, his body seized up and he collapsed and died soon afterward. I don't know any more than that, but it makes me even more sad.

Keep these students and their families in your thoughts and prayers if you are into that kind of thing. I'll be in touch


  1. That's awfully sad. Do people die more frequently in China? I've lived in America all my life and never seen anyone die. You go to China for a few months and it's all over the place.

  2. I really don't know - from what I've gathered, these were just two tragic accidents. The bricks have been coming off the buildings for a while, but no one had died before then, it was probably just a matter of time, I suppose. I suppose with China's massive population that the odds of people dying are higher, but I don't know.
