  A fire broke out in a building in Fengxian, Shanghai. The video of 55-year-old Zeng Lingping climbing the stairs with his bare hands to rescue the trapped girl went viral.

  "There are no heroes who fall from the sky, only ordinary people who stand up." Netizens sighed; Zeng Lingping's granddaughter said that his grandfather was like a "Spiderman."

  On September 12, Zeng Lingping was interviewed by The Paper. He once again recalled the thrilling scene. Some feared he said that he did not expect to make such a move.

"Persevere, must persevere"

  "Grandpa, grandpa..." At around 3 pm on September 5, a little girl shouted from a residential building in Fengxian, Shanghai.

The sound is sometimes absent, and then becomes more and more anxious.

  At this time, Zeng Lingping, who lives in the next building, is watching TV, and his wife is cleaning the kitchen.

The structure of the house was exactly 90 degrees, and the wife looked at it and found that thick smoke was emitting from the next door.

"Lingping, there is a fire there!" Zeng Lingping rushed to take a look and was taken aback, "Why is there such a big fire?"

He immediately got dressed and ran downstairs.

  At that time, many people were onlookers downstairs.

Zeng Lingping looked up and found that a little girl was standing on the fourth floor window sill with her nose and mouth covered, with heavy smoke coming out of her back.

Before he could think about it, he rushed into the corridor.

But from the first to the third floor, thick smoke blocked the passage, and it was impossible to continue upward.

  Zeng Lingping ran back downstairs, "Climb from outside." This was the way he thought of it.

  Recalling the scene of 100,000 fires at that time, Zeng Lingping couldn't help but choked up: "Just thinking about saving people, saving people eagerly, life is at stake."

  Immediately, he turned out from the platform on the first floor and climbed up step by step by stepping on the anti-theft window and the side sewer pipe.

Without any auxiliary equipment, the side of the anti-theft window is very narrow, but 2-3 cm.

  Climbing to the 4th floor, when the girl saw Zeng Lingping, she anxiously shouted: "Uncle, come and save me!" Zeng Lingping responded: "Don't worry, uncle is here to help you!" He held the window sill with one hand and reached out to the little girl with the other. .

The girl rushed over and smashed her head. Zeng Lingping felt dizzy.

"Persevere, must persevere." He said to himself inwardly.

"It doesn't matter, it's all minor injuries"

  After successfully receiving the little girl, the difficulty again lies in front of Zeng Lingping: How to send the little girl safely?

  Climbing up to more than three floors with bare hands would have consumed Zeng Lingping a lot of energy. Now, coupled with the weight of the little girl, and at the same time freeing her hands to hug the little girl, it is no longer possible to "return the same way".

  After slowing down, Zeng Lingping decided to enter the third floor through the window with the little girl in his arms.

In the meantime, he stepped and slipped, which was very thrilling.

  Finally entered the room on the third floor.

Opening the door from the living room, heavy smoke was blowing, and they couldn't escape. They had to return to the bedroom inside and wait for rescue.

"The little girl has been crying for her grandfather, I can only try to comfort her," Zeng Lingping said.

  Ten minutes later, fire rescue personnel arrived and the fire was under control.

The dense smoke dissipated, and a lot of water filled the corridor after the disaster. Zeng Lingping walked out of the stairwell with the trouser legs and the little girl on his back.

  The moment he walked out, onlookers rushed up, applauded for him, and called him "hero".

There are still many people taking pictures and videos of him. He is a little embarrassed, and feels that "this is nothing."

  At this time, the little girl who had been holding Zeng Lingping's neck tightly, only when she saw the grandpa outside the scene, let go of her arms and howled.

  "Your hand is bleeding." After putting down the little girl, someone on the scene noticed that Zeng Lingping was injured.

He looked down and saw that his hand had been cut a few times, and his fingers had been burned with several bags, and his body was blue and purple.

"Maybe it was done when climbing stairs. It doesn't matter. It's all minor injuries. Now it's almost healed." He said

"Grandpa, do you know Spider-Man?"

Zeng Lingping

  Zeng Lingping told reporters that in 1990, at the age of 24, he came to Shanghai to work. This year is the 31st year of his stay in Shanghai. He is currently working in a hardware factory.

  In life, Zeng Lingping is a "smiling" person. What he considers most is how to make more money. He told reporters that the factory didn't live on the day of the rescue. After saving the people, he went to other families to repair machines. "It is good to subsidize the family. ".

  In daily life, Zeng Lingping has done a lot of things like picking up money and helping neighbors and neighborhoods, but in his opinion, these are all normal things, including this "climbing stairs to save people."

  "Climbing the stairs to save people" means that images of the scene spread after the incident.

Zeng Lingping saw the video, "Mom, I was shocked, so I didn't dare to watch it." He would never have thought that a person who usually stands on the fourth floor and dare not look down would make such a move. .

  For a few days, Zeng Lingping would dream of climbing at night.

"Go up, down. No place to catch, no place to step on."

  On the Internet, many people call him an "ordinary hero." In reality, neighbors will mention this when they see him. He smiled and said, "Save people." He maintained his usual humility, and he was still the same. "Work every day, live a normal life."

  However, in the eyes of Zeng Lingping's 10-year-old granddaughter, he has an extra title.

  Once, after watching the video of climbing stairs to save people, his granddaughter asked him: "Grandpa, do you know Spider-Man?"

  Zeng Lingping: "I know."

  Granddaughter: "You are Spider-Man."

  Zeng Lingping: "But grandpa is old and can't run."

  Granddaughter: "Then you are the'Slow Spider-Man'."
