10 Sichuan Clips, 10 Times I Cried.

/ Thursday, May 22, 2008 /
A lot of things to say. A lot of things to share.

I have been following the news of Sichuan Earthquake on Youku.com and gathered the following 10 clips out of the abundant videos uploaded by Youku's members, either news or self-made video of heart wrenching photos.


1. 四川,不哭 (Sichuan, Don't Cry)

Original self-made video from a web user. Background music is 眼泪笑了, sung by my latest favorite singer, 刘力扬 (Liu Li Yang) from China. This clip soared in viewership within days and contrary to its title, it left more people shedding tears of sadness.





2. 母亲舍身护婴 手机遗言宝贝一定要记住我爱你!

This news clip made the news reporters cried as they report on live broadcast. It is about a mother who protected her baby during the quake by hugging it and bending forward. When the rescuers found them amidst the rubbles, the baby is still alive, warm and soundly sleeping in the firm arms of its dead mother. Sigh.

Whats more, the mother left her last message in her mobile:
Baby, if you can survive, you must remember, mummy loves you.

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.





3. 她不再醒来 向战斗在第一线的人们致敬

A nurse who had been taking care of Sichuan's earthquake victims for days without rest finally collapsed and succumbed to her originally weak heart. During the critical period of rescuing her, her husband was so worried and anxious that he couldn't control his hands.

The white angel had her heart resumed pumping for 11 times throughout the rescue but left finally forever. Her husband couldn't control and collapsed onto the floor crying for her. Everyone around rushed to support him.

The saddest part is, their daughter came to hug her fallen father and cried PAPA, PAPA. Arghh.





4. 北川男子被埋为了老婆坚持73小时,救出后却坚持不了,现场女记者痛哭不已

A victim, Chen Jian's strong will to live for his wife kept him alive and appeared to be in a good shape even though he was suppressed under the huge broken wall pieces for 73 hours. Rescuers were trying their best to save him out while a female reporter interviewed him and giving him support.

This 16 minutes long video clip saw the whole episode of rescue and when they finally were carrying him down the rubble hill in the ultra dark night, Chen Jian let go of his will finally.

The rescuer scolded him, for being silly and giving up after all that perseverance. The female reporter also cried for him to wake up but to no avail. The scene ended with one of the male rescuers silently weeping behind.





5. 救援战士目击伤者死亡 泪如雨下失控晕倒

The soldiers and rescuers really gave in all their hearts I tell you.

This soldier in the clip was being interviewed and when he was talking about witnessing victims dying in front of him, he just couldn't control and cried out. That sudden wrench of emotion made him collapse halfway through the interview.





6. 特写:九岁小英雄

This heroic cute little 9 years old boy, Ying Xiu, was studying when the quake hit Sichuan. Only 10 from his class of 31 students escaped from the school building in time.

During the escape, the walls suddenly collapsed on 2 of his friends and him. He tried to climb out and when he finally did, he didn't run away but instead, he saved the 2 of them by pulling them out and carrying them 1 by 1, despite his small size, to the principal.

He survived, rescued his friends but lost his parents. His sister brought him down the hill and walked for 7 hours to the victims' camp, waiting for the hopeful news of their parents to come.





7. 11岁女孩跳下6楼逃生后重返塌楼救出多名老师

A right decision made at the right time and at the right place. This 11 years old girl decided to jump down from her classroom on the 6th floor onto the farm's field in the nick of time. Just as she jumped, she said the building collapsed behind her.

She survived the fall without injuries but did not run away as well. She turned back and went into the messy rubble to save many teachers out.

During her interview, she cried and said she couldn't say sorry to her dad anymore and that she had lost her dad forever. When volunteers told her her mum is on her way to meet up with her, she quickly wiped her tears and requested for food so that she would appear energetic enough not to let her mother worry.

When her mother came into the room, they hugged in tears. The kind of lost and found feeling, you know, is really indescribable.





8. 汶川空投伞兵救灾

SALUTE TO THE FRONTLINE SOLDIERS!!!

This batch of soldiers were the first troop to integrate into the dangerous disaster-stricken area by parachutes and reconnected Sichuan's communication with the world once again.





9. 汶川地震最新消息:灾区老太太跪求解放军:你们一定要吃一定要喝

Many Sichuan survivors were deeply touched by the relentless soldiers and volunteers during this difficult period. Sights of villagers offering food and drink to them are everywhere but this particular scene was really touching.

Soldiers often reject the villagers' offers due to the strict rules and shortage of food supply too. This grandmother was really grateful to them and persisted giving them the food she brought while telling them,

"All of you must eat and drink."

Upon many rejections from the brave soldiers, the grandmother kneeled down and plead with them to accept...





10. 让我们记住这些脸

Another web user made this video full of heart-aching photos, wanting us to remember each and every sad face during this catastrophe. May all of you be blessed with our love.














I cried in office seeing this. CAN SOMEONE GIVE HER BACK HER KINS?!!!!!!!!!

刘力扬 - 眼泪笑了
5/5 Sandeestars



比想象中更痛
你真的没回头
我命令眼泪不许失控
回忆不跟你走
都积在我心中
我就有责任让它值得被珍重
谢谢你曾让我难过
谢谢我没有想太多
当爱情左盼右顾的时候

我眼泪都笑了
谁还想哭呢
再勇敢地站着
找回光和热
面对你的时候
我不会舍不得
因为你已是过客
因为路有些曲折
是美的


心碎成了沙漠
就快开凿绿洲
我没有时间不知所措
你温柔的双手
本就不属于我
又何必在乎它以后属于谁呢
谢谢你曾让我难过
谢谢我没有想太多
当爱情左盼右顾的时候

我眼泪都笑了
谁还想哭呢
再勇敢地站着
找回光和热
面对你的时候
我不会舍不得
因为你已是过客
因为路有些曲折
是美的

我眼泪都笑了
谁还会哭呢
来不及完美的
就唱首离歌
想起你的时候
我不是卑微的
然而我没有遗憾
因为我已爱过你
深深的

That 'Chen Jian' fella..

I think I'll stay haunted with his voice for a long time to come. His story is just too much to handle.
