By: Keoni Everington, Taiwan News, Staff Writer
On Monday evening, an elderly man fell down and suffered head trauma just outside the Danfeng MRT Station in New Taipei City, causing him to begin to bleed. When the accident occurred, a high school student immediately took off his jacket and used it to compress the wound and elevate the man's head until an ambulance arrived.
The image was soon posted online, winning the praise of many Taiwanese netizens. He was later identified as Hsiao Tzu-chin (蕭子秦), a third-year student at New Taipei Municipal DanFeng High School.
He was cited by Liberty Times as saying that when he saw the elderly man lying on the ground, he initially wanted to help pick up his shoes. However, when he noticed that the man was bleeding, he recalled the first aid process when the burly YouTuber Holger Chen (陳之漢) was shot, and he initially planned to use tissue paper to help stop the bleeding.
