A heroic bus driver who died was the most talked-about topic on China’s Twitter clone, Sina Weibo microblog, on Tuesday.
1. A funeral service for the heroic bus driver Wu Bin (吴斌) was held in Hangzhou city, Zhejiang province, on Tuesday morning. The 48-year-old was fatally injured by a piece of metal that flew through his windscreen when he was driving 24 passengers from Wuxi back to Hangzhou on May 29. But he regained composure after the freakish strike, going on to stop the bus, turn on the hazard lights, put on the parking brake and advise passengers to remain seated before collapsing. He died, however, on June 1. See the astonishing video clip below.
3. Chinese netizens had heated discussions on the 2012 E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo), which starts on June 5 in Los Angeles.
4. A medical student with an internship at an east China hospital’s pediatric department apologized to the public after posting photos online of herself mishandling newborns. In the photos on her Sina Weibo account, she held sleeping babies upright as if they were dead, or stuck paper pig noses and ears on their faces.
5. Actress Maggie Cheung (张曼玉) confirmed she has broken up with her foreign boyfriend of five years. She stressed they remain good friends.
