A high school student in Shangrao, Jiangxi province, recently jumped off the building to show a girl his love after he was rejected by her.
The boy had sent dozens of letters to the girl before the incident happened, however, she still had no affection for the boy. In order to stop him from chasing her, she told him to choose between jumping off the building and stopping his useless pursuit. To the girl’s surprise, the boy chose to jump off the balcony on the 4th floor.
Thanks to the branch of a tree that was in the way, the boy was still alive despite fractures and injuries. When sent to the hospital, the boy was still shouting the girl’s name.
The boy is one of the top students and the president of the school’s students’ union, which makes the incident even more shocking to his family and teachers.
He is said to be regretful for what he had done and, while receiving treatment, is busy preparing for the College Entrance Examination with books that his family members had brought to the hospital.
He is expected to recover well enough to go back to school in a few days, but doctors remain concerned about his mental state.
