Wan Yongping (万永平) is a trainee nurse from the Lianshui County Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Jiangsu Province. On July 15, 2012, she successfully acted as a midwife for a woman in labor on a train.
The incident happened at midnight on the train from Shanghai to Tumen, Jilin Province. When the train was passing through the Jiangsu provincial section, a pregnant woman suddenly went into labor. Wan heard the news and immediately made her way over to the carriage to help. Although not experienced in midwifery, Wan braved all risks of danger at a time of desperate and critical need. With the help of her college teacher guiding her through the motions on the phone, she successively delivered a healthy baby. Both mother and son were safe and sound.
Born in 1990 in Lianshui, Jiangsu Province, Wan graduated from the Taishan Vocational College of Nursing in Shandong Province. She was described as the "Most Beautiful Nurse" by Chinese Internet users and was conferred the honorary title of "Excellent Trainee Nurse" by the Lianshui County Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
