A Japanese man flew to Taiwan on Friday to personally thank a Taiwanese man who rendered assistance to his son after he was fatally struck by falling rocks while mountain biking at a national park in eastern Taiwan last year.

Ryoichi Shirai thanked Huang Po-hsien for coming to the aid of his son, Hiroyuki, while he lay bleeding on the ground after the accident on Sept 9 last year in Taroko National Park.
