At noon on August 15, Miss Wang (not her real name) rode her electric bicycle through the intersection of Dongguan Road and Wentao road in Hangzhou. She suddenly had a sharp pain in her neck, and then she fell off her car and fell to the ground.
When she was sent to the hospital, the doctor found that her trachea had been completely cut off.
Construction workers nearby witnessed part of the scene
The woman fell so hard that the helmet of the electric car was broken
It happened at the intersection of Wentao road and Dongguan Road, which is actually a “t” shaped intersection. Next to it is the “s” corner of Qiantang River. It is relatively remote. There are no shops, no buildings, and no place to buy a bottle of water.
Yesterday afternoon at two o’clock, the sun went ahead and walked two steps. The sweat beads on the top of the soya bean slipped down the cheeks, and several large straw hats were encountered at the scene. The project they are building is “the innovation center of wisdom Xintiandi”.
Mr. Zhang, who is in his 50s, is sunburnt and has cracked lips. He is squinting and standing on a lawn, watering with a hose.
“Oh, you said that day’s event, I was far away, did not see the fall process. At that time, it was more than 11 o’clock at that time. I was ready to have lunch. I saw from a distance on Wentao Road (crossing with Dongguan Road), after the traffic lights, on the south facing electric vehicle lane, there was an electric vehicle lying on its side, and a woman was carried into an ambulance. I don’t know exactly. Why don’t you go upstairs and ask the mason. ” Lao Zhang said.
Climbing upstairs, you can see the Qiantang River. Three Masons are laying bricks. One is wearing sunglasses, one is wearing a white towel around his neck, and the other is wearing a red T-shirt.
“It’s about 11:30. We are far away. It’s estimated that it’s 50 meters away. I don’t know how I fell. It’s just that after seeing her fall, the woman originally wore an electric bicycle helmet. She fell heavily and her helmet was broken.”
The worker with sunglasses said, “there’s a woman next to me. A kind-hearted passer-by will hold an umbrella for her.” The white towel worker added: “it is estimated that the good-natured person who holds the umbrella is also riding by, seeing and reporting to the police.”
As for why they were strangled, what kind of rope they were strangled, and who tied the rope, several people shook their heads.
Someone saw a red rope that strangled Miss Wang’s neck
Tied across the motorway
Nearly 4 p.m., seven or eight women in hats gathered at the intersection, waiting for the bus home.
“I saw a red rope like cloth, wrapped around the traffic light pole and the tree on the sidewalk, which is equivalent to crossing the whole electric drive lane for three times. The rope is about the size of a thumb. The place where she fell is the traffic light. Go over a little bit. See, there are still scratches on the ground. “
Scratch of electric vehicle after falling to the ground
An aunt pointed to the scratch on the motorway and said that at that time, she saw the woman get up and sit on the curb, motionless. There was indeed a woman riding an electric bicycle, holding an umbrella for her. Then 120 arrived and carried the injured woman to the car.
Three days after the incident, the reporter saw at the scene that there were indeed rope marks on the black traffic light pole, which had been wound for at least three times. I asked the worker for a tape measure. The minimum height of the rope trace is about 1.1 meters above the ground, and the highest is 1.3 meters. I tried to squat down like riding an electric bicycle, and the height was almost at the neck.
The minimum height of the rope trace is about 1.1 meters above the ground
Who pulled the rope? The aunts looked at each other and said that about an hour after the incident, at more than 12 o’clock at noon, they saw a small yellow work car coming. Someone got out of the car and untied the rope.
Another aunt added that at eight or nine o’clock that morning, they had the rope when they came to work, and they didn’t know what to do with it.
Why is Xiao Wang strangled?
The reporter stayed at the scene for more than two hours, only saw seven or eight electric vehicles. It is estimated that Xiao Wang unfortunately became the first electric vehicle passing by on the day of the incident. According to eyewitnesses at the scene, this rope is the most common rope used as a simple fence, with red and white triangular flags on it. Later, there was a sign on the car that showed it was a repair vehicle of the power company. After the incident, the person in charge of the power company said that the responsibility would not be shirked, and the company would pay for the medical expenses of Miss Wang.
The red rope is wrapped around the traffic light poles and trees on the sidewalk, crossing the entire non motorized lane.
The trachea was completely severed and the esophagus was ruptured
Fortunately, the head was not injured
Wu Dingqian, deputy chief physician of the emergency medicine department of the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University, told me that Xiao Wang was less than 30 years old and was from Fuyang, Anhui Province. At that time, when they were delivered at noon, they were short of breath, panting, unable to speak at all, and had a sore throat. “We immediately gave her an emergency intubation, and we did an examination and found that her trachea was completely broken and her esophagus was broken. The operation must be carried out immediately. ” Dr. Wu said the operation took about two hours to reattach Xiao Wang’s trachea and repair his esophagus. At present, her vital signs are stable, but she still can’t speak. The next step is to observe, and there may be infection risk in the later stage.
Fortunately, she was wearing a helmet at that time, and her head was not injured, which was a blessing among the misfortunes.
How serious are the consequences of a rope or string strangling your neck?
