7.21 A firefighter and chamion trail runner

Wo Ho-Chung is a firefighter and champion trail runner, and on the night of the July 21 Yuen Long attack, he and his wife (a former nurse) drove to the metro station to help the injured.

He was stripped the honour of “Cross Country Runner of the Year” by China’s major outdoor sports prize Golden Rhino Award due to “publishing online speech harmful to the motherland’s unification”.

7月21日晚上,元朗西鐵站發生了一場白衣人無差別攻擊市民的暴力事件。不少元朗區居民均要自救。 消防員、得獎越野跑手及元朗居民的黃浩聰(阿聰),與曾任職護士的太太Viann開車前來義載。他當時並不是值班,但看直播見到暴力事件,無法視若無睹。「唔站出來幫忙,好像自己過唔到良知嗰一種感覺。」 在大事大非前,阿聰選擇見義勇為。他坦言並沒有思考太多立場,反而救人要緊,「咩人都會救。」他如是說了幾次。 休班不忘救人,他很記得自己入職成為消防員前、所讀過的「消防員職責」:「我做消防的職責就是要救火救人,保障市民大眾的性命財產。」他認為,任何事上,我們要做好自己的本份。 而是次警方有否盡到本份,相信公眾有目共睹。
