27-Year-Old Tour Guide Drops Dead, Has Uninspiring Last Words

A 27-year-old tour guide letting his charges watch a performance in Lijiang was in the middle of telling another tour guide how tired he was when he unexpectedly collapsed. The tour guide beside him tried holding him up but he was entirely comatose, eventually dying after an hour of emergency treatment. His last words were “I woke up at 5 AM, I’m too tired.” The initial diagnosis is sudden heart failure.

    But who among us has prepared their valediction?
    What last words could this guide have come up with that would be better?
    ” The tour… must continue…”
    ” If you look …to your right… you will see….
    …paradise..”

      I was thinking, “Look, you can buy jade here! Have a try. No more tour until you buy shitty jade!”
      Seriously tho, has to be a real suckass job.

        Actually, if I read the translation correctly (and maybe I didn’t) it seemed like he wasn’t so much like that. I think it said he’d been fired twice because his love was just being a guide.

        EDIT: I read that wrong. Still, he had a lot of friends that said really nice things about him.

          Well hopefully all of our friends will say some nice shit about us when we die. Even if you were an asshole like me and your friends have to lie through their teeth :D

    If there’s anyone still here, could someone properly translate this article? There’s a lot more details to this story than was reported above. I used Bing translator, but of course, it made a Chinglish salad out of it. Here’s some things I noticed.

    – It seems like he wasn’t attended to for over an hour (I really can’t read that part properly)

    – the primary report for cause of death was cardiac arrest

    – he had been getting up at 5:30am for the past three days

    This is direct translation, but I think it speaks pretty clearly…

    Some say this career guide “going to bed later than a dog, get up earlier than the chicken, eat worse than pigs” and this is no exaggeration, in this industry, hard body will get the tour guide tired of both physical and psychological.

    If you read his friends messages at the end of the story, not to mention how people described his character, it’s a really, really sad story.

      The article said he was attended to 5 minutes after local emergency agency was called, for an hour, and then hospital people tried for further 30 minutes. He worked for 3 days, and got up at 5:30 that day.
