Something happened in the past that still affects my life today…
I will never forget this date, September 19, 2008!
I watched a lot of news on TV about violence crimes, assaults, battery, homicide, etc. But I cannot imagine that I became one of the violence crime victims and was sent to a hospital on September 19, 2008!
Here’s what happened that day. Around 11:30 that morning, I just got out from the San Francisco Shopping Center, and when I just stepped out from the shopping center, a crazy white guy, much looked like a homeless, approached from somewhere near the BART station. He yelled at me madly, like “LURRRRRRRRR~~~LURRRRRR~~~~LURRRRR", like that! I didn’t even have any idea for what and why he yelled at me, that crazy guy use his damn fist PUNCHED my left eye! He attacked me very hardly, and my glasses was broken immediately and dropped on the street, my left eye just above the eyelid was cut by my broken glasses, and BLEEDING! BLEEDING~~~~~ Because the place of incident is the tourist hotspot, many people witnessed the whole incident. As I was wounded, many nice people, including security guards from the shopping center, the street merchants, as well as some walk-by people helped me a lot, and gave me some basic treatment on my wound. A Mandarin-speaking street merchant gave me a chair to rest, then a security guard from the shopping center handed me a bag of ice. Another woman, who claimed that she was a nurse, took a look on my wound. All of them talked to me, and tried to make me feel better. At that time, I thought the only thing I could do is keep myself calm, and told myself, there’s no big deal, just a little cut, and I was okay.
During the time I was waiting for further treatment on my wound, the police officers and an ambulance arrived, a medical staff took me into the ambulance, and ready to the hospital. Before we departed, a police officer asked me some questions about the incident, then the officer gave me a piece of paper in order to have further investigation, and I should have that piece of information to obtain a police report, and the medical staff told me that all cost of the treatment will be covered because I was an assault victim, all I have to do was to send a copy of police report to the hospital. Few minutes later, we arrived the hospital, the Emergency Room Doctor gave me treatment on my wound after he checked if there was any serious problem on my other parts of body. As my condition got stable, and proper treatment was given, I was released from the hospital about half an hour later. The whole assault incident, which made me wounded, was finally over.
That was my first experience of being attacked on the street. Also, that was my unforgettable day ever, I never forget September 19, 2008! This horrible experience remains in my heart forever.
這是當天發生的事情。那天早上11:30左右，我剛從舊金山購物中心出來，當我剛從購物中心走出來時，一個瘋狂的白人，看起來像一個無家可歸的人，從BART車站附近的某個地方走近。他瘋狂地對我大喊，像“LURRRRRRRRR ~~~ LURRRRRR ~~~~ LURRRRR”，就像那樣！我甚至不知道他為什麼以及為什麼對我大吼大叫，那個瘋狂的傢伙用他那該死的拳頭捶打我的左眼！他幾乎沒有襲擊我，我的眼鏡立即被打破並丟在街道上，眼瞼上方的左眼被我破碎的眼鏡割傷了，出現了！出血~~~~~因為事發地點是旅遊熱點，很多人目睹了整個事件。當我受傷時，許多好人，包括購物中心的保安人員，街頭商人，以及一些步行的人幫了我很多，並給了我一些基本的治療方法。一個說普通話的街頭商人給了我一把椅子休息，然後一個來自購物中心的保安遞給我一袋冰。另一位聲稱自己是護士的女士看了看我的傷口。所有人都跟我說話，並試圖讓我感覺更好。那個時候，我認為我唯一能做的就是讓自己保持冷靜，然後告訴自己，沒什麼大不了的，只是一點切，我沒事。
在我等待傷口進一步治療期間，警察和一輛救護車到了，醫務人員帶我進了救護車，準備去醫院。 在我們離開之前，一名警察問我有關事件的一些問題，然後警察給了我一張紙以便進一步調查，我應該有那條信息來獲得警方報告，醫務人員告訴我 因為我是一名襲擊受害者，我將承擔所有治療費用，我所要做的就是向醫院發送一份警察報告。 幾分鐘後，我們到了醫院，急診室醫生檢查了我身體的其他部位是否有任何嚴重問題後給了我傷口治療。 隨著我的病情穩定，並給予適當的治療，大約半小時後我被醫院釋放。 導致我受傷的整個突擊事件終於結束了。
這是我第一次遭到街頭襲擊。 此外，那是我難忘的一天，我永遠不會忘記2008年9月19日！ 這種可怕的經歷永遠存在於我心中。
