This is a true story of Mother’s Sacrifice during the Sichuan Earthquake in 2008.
When the rescue team discovered her, she was already dead. She was crushed by the house that collapsed. Through the debris and destruction, you can see the position in which she died. She was kneeling, with her whole body in a forward position, using her hands to support her body. It is somewhat similar to how people pray in the olden days, except that her body has somewhat changed its shaped, and it looks a little scary.
The rescue worker squeezed his hand through all the debris just to confirm that she’s dead. He shouted a few times, using his baton to knock a few times on the bricks.. but there was no response inside. When the crowd walked to the next building, the team leader suddenly ran back again, shouting, “come quickly!!!” He came to her dead body, and used all his might to feel under the woman’s body. He seems to have felt something.. then he shouted, “there’s someone, there’s a child, still alive”.
After some struggle, the team and volunteers helped to clear all the debris apart, and took out her child from under her body. He was wrapped in a red blanket with yellow floral patterns. He’s about 3 or 4 months old. Because of his mother’s protection, he was completely unscathed. When they carried him out, he was still sleeping peacefully. His sleeping face warmed everyone’s heart. The accompanying doctor performed some checks on him, and found a hand phone inside the blanket. He read the screen and found that it wrote the following, all entered in the phone. “My dearest child, if you are able to survive, you must remember that I love you”. The doctor who has experienced many births and deaths in life through his career, cried too at this moment. The phone was passed around. Everyone who saw it couldn’t help shedding tears either.
