Cheng Changjiang, an eighteen-year-old high school student in Henan, has drowned after rescuing three children who had fallen into a lake. Two toddlers had wandered into the water, and their older sister fell in as well during her attempt to pull them out. Cheng was able to save all three, but lost his life in the process.
