On August 20, a 39-year-old male tourist suddenly convulsed and spited out froth, when climbing Tianyou Peak of Wuyi Mountain with a tourist team from Shanghai. Fortunately, a same-team tourist named Gong Keqi, who is a doctor retired from Yueyang Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine, helped him out of danger.
Gong Keqi said that he heard some shout when almost reaching the top of the Peak. Someone yelled, “Help, help”. He walked forward and found that a man lay on the ground, convulsing uninterruptedly. His family had no idea about what to do. It would miss the best rescue time if sending him to a hospital from the peak.
After checking, Dr. Gong found that the man was almost in coma without pulse, which belonged to sudden cardiac arrest. Gong implemented heart resuscitation to him immediately. 3 minutes later, his face became florid instead of cyanosis and he had pulse upon resumption. His lower body had consciousness too. 5 minutes later, his sense and heart-beat were resumed gradually.
After coming round, he said that he was ordinarily in good health and felt nothing wrong with his heart, but he actually lacked exercise in daily life. Dr. Gong suggested that he took a further inspection in hospital. His family was so grateful to Dr. Gong for saving his life. Gong said, it was his duty to do it as a doctor.
