However, there was shock as the the man came into the light — he was a laowai.
According to Go Chengdoo, the man left the scene immediately after the incident, but Chinese reporters tracked him to his hotel. The man, a 53-year-old from Sweden later identified as Harald Göbel, had been on a 10 day business trip to Chengdu — his first trip ever to China.
Chinese media has proclaimed Harald a hero, and others staying at the same hotel as him bought him flowers. In Chine he has been referred to as "foreign Lei Feng", named after a Chinese soldier famous in Communist legend for his bravery.
However, Harald remained humble. “When I saw that the woman was being taken care of by the ambulance staff, I went back to the hotel with my friend, had a shower, and then relaxed in the hotel bar.
