A former soldier heroically stepped in tosave a woman falling from a 11-storey building in Enshi, central China, butended up in hospital himself.
Feng Ning, 23, was walking past thebuilding with friends when he heard screams for help and saw a woman danglingout of a window, according to People's Daily Online.
He tried to catch the woman as she fell butended up getting crushed by the force of her fall. Unfortunately the woman,could not be saved and died as a result of her injuries.
The hero will need surgery costing morethan 80,000 Yuan (￡8,000).
Feng, who left the army after two years ofservice and is due to start his university education, is too poor to afford hisown fees.
However, thanks to his heroic act, manyteachers and fellow students have donated to his cause.
The reason why the woman fell out of thewindow is still under investigation.

To me this is man is the real deal, a TrueHero for attempting to save this person. He did not know whom it was, their sexor place in society, all he knew was they needed help from someone or theywould surely die. We have used the hero moniker in many situations but this oneis truly befitting of this man. I hope he is helped by donations and possiblyeven has little left over after its all said and done for helping him reach hisgoals in life. Our World could sure use many more like him.
