已经被MIT等名校录取 华人女高中生命丧伊顿山谷

【波士顿双语网综合报道】已经收到MIT和康奈尔大学录取通知书的南加州马凯博高中的17岁女高中生孙燕(Esther Yieng Suen,音译)3月22日在伊顿山谷(Eaton Canyona)登山时不慎跌下60米深的山谷,因头部重伤而身亡,和她一同跌落山谷的男生受重伤。当时正在放春假的孙燕同四位同学一同去旅游,而不幸踏上不归路。

孙燕家人日前在脸书上设立纪念专页,并宣布将在3月30日举行追悼会。孙燕的学校Emmaus Lutheran Church & School 23日开放供民众表达哀思,马上就有鲜花和各种礼物堆积起来。截至26日上午,已经有321人在脸书表示将出席追悼会。

据警方透露,该出事地点非常危险,2011年伊顿峡谷就有60起意外,其中2人死亡;2012年有5起重伤。很多登山者在发生意外事故之后,需要直升机救助。

对于培养了这样一位优秀华人高中生的孙燕父母来说,这无疑是一个沉重的打击。波士顿华人双语网提醒所有爱好探险的年轻人一定要做好安全保护工作,对潜在的危险有充分的认识。每个人的身体素质、技巧不一样,不要因为别人做到了,你就一定要去做,不要让亲人为你哭泣!
