A wealthy Shanghai university student who suffered injuries in last month’s Taipei water park
blaze has offered to donate 300,000 yuan towards the recovery of a fellow burn victim staying in her hospital.
Eighteen-year-old Teresa Yip, who sustained burns over nearly 40 percent of her body in the Color Play Asia “party powder” explosion, was transferred to the Shanghai Ruijin Hospital on June 30 at the request of her parents, who live and work in the city.
