BEIJING – Everyone knows life is too short and education is so important, so no matter what are you facing of reading is a must, and one Chinese student sets a beautiful example in this regard.
Despite suffering painful injuries in a road accident in China’s capital Beijing, Wang Dafan wasted no precious time while waiting for medics to arrive.
‘We couldn’t believe it when we got there,’ said a police spokesman. ‘She was obviously in pain but she was using an electronic dictionary to memorise English words for her university lessons.
She said the accident had reminded her life was too short, and education too important, to waste time on worrying about other things.
The 18-year-old girl was knocked off her bike by a car as she was on her way to a tutorial.
Having checked out that she was not seriously injured, she reached into her bag for the electronic gizmo while still sprawled on the ground, and set about learning 107 new English words in the time it took for an ambulance to arrive to treat injuries to her legs, head and arms.
