After the police and civilian police warned Zhang of reckless behavior on the spot, they conducted further investigations into the case and collected evidence. In order to avoid escalation of the conflict, Zhang left the barbecue restaurant under the persuasion of Wu and other friends. After the auxiliary policemen Yu Jun and Chen Zexian, who were involved in handling the police, discovered the situation, they were afraid of accidents and followed them to the gate. However, Zhang, who was in a drunk state, was still very impulsive and blamed the girl Wu for speaking to him. He kicked Wu with his foot and slapped her.
Yu Jun stepped forward and quickly pulled them away, while Wu left the scene alone. After a while, Yu Jun suddenly heard someone calling for help on the other side of the road, and rushed over with his colleague Chen Zexian. “No, the opposite is the lake!” Yu Jun said as he ran, “Hurry up, we have to hold her quickly!”
Wu Mouping felt uncomfortable after being beaten by Zhang for no reason. I felt wronged, crying while climbing over the concrete railing by the lake, trying to jump into the lake and commit suicide. Yu Jun rushed to the lake at a speed of 100 meters, holding Wu’s right foot tightly with both hands, while Chen Zexian pulled out Wu’s left foot that was stuck in the railing hole.

At the same time, enthusiastic people Zhang Hongliang and Wan Yaping came to help, climbed over the railing, and pushed Wu up, but the girl’s emotions were more out of control and she kept trying Break free. Because there was a 50-degree slope outside the railings and covered with moss, Wu struggled desperately, and the T-shirt he was wearing broke off. He rolled along the slope into the lake and brought Zhang Hongliang into the water.
Since Poyang Lake is in the flood season and the water level is high, the situation is extremely urgent. At the moment of his death, Yu Jun couldn’t even take off his clothes and shoes. He quickly climbed over the railing and jumped into the lake to participate in the rescue.
Afterwards, colleagues learned from Yu Jun’s family that he grew up in the mountains. He was a duck and couldn’t swim. The last sentence Chen Zexian heard from Yu Jun was: “Quick! Quick! Call someone to get something (life-saving equipment on the police car)!” Chen Zexian called the police support for the scene investigation, and ran to the police car to get the life-saving equipment.
At this moment, Yu Jun is supporting Wu in the water and pushing her hard to the shore. The crowd Wan Yaping used his feet to hold the gap between the stones as a fulcrum, and pulled Zhang Hongliang and Wu who had fallen into the water.
In just a few minutes, all those involved in the rescue felt that time was so long. As there were no street lights by the lake at night, the lake bank had a slope of more than 5 meters and was covered with moss, which was very slippery, and rescuers were exhausted. The reinforcement police threw the life jacket and lifeline to the rescuers. Zhang Hongliang put on the life jacket and tied Wu with the lifeline. Pulling on the shore, pushing in the water, everyone worked together to rescue Wu ashore. At this time, no one noticed that Yu Jun, who was not well versed in water, sank into the water due to lack of physical strength.
Slow down, Zhang Hongliang shouted: “The policemen who got into the water are gone!” Chen Jimo, an enthusiastic young man with better water quality, actively said that he could swim, tied a lifeline, dived into the water, and passed several times. After searching, Yu Jun finally got out of the water. After everyone worked together to carry it ashore, the medical staff tried their best to rescue him, and Comrade Yu Jun died heroically.
