8.0 Sichuan Earthquake on the 12 May

Involved in rescue efforts, Feng Xiang witnessed the death of his
7 year old Son during the devastating Sichian Earthquake.
at 2:00 am Monday, no longer being able to cope with his own depression, Feng Xiang hung himself---this is the third death of an Chinese official that has committed suicide.

On the 25 November, I wrote here that Dong Yufei, committed suicide, unable to cope with the loss of his 12 year old Son and other relatives.

So terribly sad---God have mercy.
