Wuhan Lovers’ Excited First Kiss Turns Into Hospital Visit

What was supposed to be a romantic, memorable experience for a young couple in Wuhan turned into an embarrassing (and painful) hospital visit. As reported by Caijing, a first kiss turned into a nightmare.

An 18 year-old university student named Zhang was out celebrating with his girlfriend Xiao Wen on their first Qixi Festival together last Saturday. They did the usual lovebird-type things: Zhang gave her candy and took her out to dinner. Then they headed out into a secluded wooded area on campus where everything appeared right for that special moment.

Zhang, though, was a bit too excited. As he leaned in to kiss Xiao Wen, he collided with her using excessive force, causing her jaw to dislocate.  At around 9pm, red with embarrassment, Zhang took Xiao Wen to a hospital off campus to avoid running into anybody he knew.

The Deputy Director of the Oral Cavity Department Dr Zhang Fulan treated Xiao and properly reattached her jaw, allowing her to open and close it as well as being able to kiss, should she ever recover from her newest phobia.

Despite the sensational circumstances of this story, Dr Zhang said these types of injuries are quite common. He said jaw dislocations commonly occur from kissing, laughing, yawning, or eating an apple. He explained that because the jaw is relaxed, injuries resulting from force can happen.

To prevent such injuries, Dr Zhang recommends not opening your mouth too wide, laughing too loudly, biting into things that are too hard, and to exercise your chewing muscles.

As for kissing, Dr Zhang suggests not to “overdo it”.

Man Goes For A Massage In Shenzhen, Leaves Paralyzed

Mr Liu went to the Seaside Resort in Shiyan New Town, Bao’an District with five of his friends at 2:30 am on June 16. The group had all purchased the RMB 90 karaoke-footbath package. The friends sang together and drank alcohol.

The friends then separated to receive their massages. That’s when Liu’s masseuse knelt on Liu’s back in order to work on his neck. Twenty minutes later, however, Liu fell to the masseuse’s feet from a sitting position.

Liu’s friend Zhang said Liu was unresponsive:

We tried to wake him up, but he wasn’t able to say anything. Instead, his eyes rolled in his sockets, his tongue fell out, and tears continually rolled down from his eyes.

When Liu was taken to the hospital, not only was he still unconscious, but Liu had lost the ability to breathe on his own. He’s now in intensive care with a ventilator to help his breathing.

According to an x-ray, the first and second vertebrae of Liu’s neck were displaced. The deputy head of the intensive care department Dr You said it’s too early to link Liu’s massage with his unconsciousness, but said the worst case scenario would see Liu suffer from paralysis.

The masseuse at the Seaside Resort is reportedly a 25 year-old woman with three years experience as a masseuse. All massage practitioners at the resort are trained according to resort standards as explained by a representative for the Seaside Resort, Mr Xing:

(Massage) practitioners at the resort can complete their required training in ten days if they are quick, or 12 days to half a month if they are slow.

Police are currently investigating.

Water Temperature of Guangdong Village Well Mysteriously Rises After Storm

Posted: 04/9/2014 4:15 pm

In early April, a fatal storm that hit the Pearl River Delta left behind 15 fatalities in its wake. However, the ill wind that blew this weather disturbance to our shores may also have brought something else… something more sinister.

After the storm left, a water well located in Nanting village near University Town started to reach temperatures of 45 degrees centigrade, Guangzhou Daily reported on April 7. Dug more than 20 years ago near Huang ancestral hall, the owners of the well had never experienced anything like this before… until now.

Mrs Huang had used water from the well to wash clothes and vegetables. Now when the sky becomes dark, white steam can be seen coming from the top of the well. “Now I can’t use it to water my growing vegetables, or else, they will die.” said Mrs Huang. [emphasis added]

According to experts from the Guangzhou earthquake administration, the temperature rise has to do with changes of local geological conditions. It apparently has nothing to do with malicious ghosts that live at the bottom of wells and crawl out of TVs at the end of scary movies.

The reasons to this phenomenon unclear, we’ll hedge our bets and say that getting to the bottom of this mystery will only land you in hot water.
