Li Ke, deputy director of Xiling Police Station, Dayi County, Chengdu, applied for his last leave from August 21 to 26, 2019. He returned to Zhongxian County, Chongqing to see his parents. The time for filling out the form was August 19, 2019.
On the night of filling out the blanks, there was a sudden rainstorm in Xiling Town. In the early morning of the 20th, a crowd warned that a mountain torrent broke out in Yunhua Village, which was in urgent need of rescue. At about 2 a.m., Li Ke, who was on duty that day, drove to the rescue with two assistant policemen. One hour later, three people lost contact with the command center of Dayi County Public Security Bureau. Eleven hours later, Li Ke and Zhou Zhengliang, one of the assistant policemen, were found on the dams of the two estuaries and Huashuiwan respectively, while Luo Yonghong, another assistant policeman, has not yet been traced.
In Zhongxian County, Chongqing, 600 kilometers away, Li Kes mother, Liu Chengqiong, was thrilled that her son was about to return home. On the 19th, Liu Chengqiong was busy preparing food for her son after the mother and son talked on the phone. But on the 20th, Liu Chengqiong couldnt get through to her son.
Until 3:00 p.m. on the 20th, Liu Chengqiong and others came, just over the age of 34, when his son died in the execution of his mission.
Liu Chengqiong said that when the police was her sons childhood dream, but later she realized that the occupation was so hard. He always calls me on the way to and from work. He says that once he gets there, hes too busy to leave. Sometimes hes called back to work just after work. Liu Chengqiong said that her filial son always told her to take good care of her grandfather in her 90s and her fathers body.
Li Guangkui, who was very strong before, saw pictures of his son hanging on the wall of Xiling Police Station. Tears rushed down, even with the help of others, he could barely stand firm.
Li Guangkui and Liu Chengqiong walked into their sons office for the first time with the help of others. The office is very neat, with a small white board hanging on the wall, which says the next important work: Handling dog license, Strengthening the management of farm music...
Liu Chengqiong hugged his sons table card in his arms and muttered to his sons picture on the table: I will take care of your home...
