Viral photos of tired firemen spark praise for “heroes”
If asked to imagine a firefighter, what springs to mind?
Photos of a group of firemen have been trending on Chinese social media after one of the team members captured shots of them completely spent after a night battling a blaze in east China’s Zhejiang Province earlier this week. They are seen asleep right by the roadside.
One of the men in the photos is young fire brigade sergeant Dong Youhui. He reportedly entered the site of the fire at about 6 p.m. on Monday, and stayed up the whole night, with a very occasional break just to get some fresh air and water.

Netizens were moved by the efforts of these brave young men to protect the public.
“Thank you guys, you’re real heroes,” commented @yaobuqihebujiabei on Sina Weibo.
“Salute to those guys who will always step forward when there’s danger,” said @fenglingzi.
Overwork has become a major killer of emergency services workers in China. According to a report from the Ministry of Public Security last year, the deaths of 205 of the 438 police officers and firefighters who died on duty in 2014 were connected to their heavy workload.
