Recently, it has been noticed that there is an increasing number of safety accidents happening around the campus, and it’s been raising tremendous attention. For example, several months ago, a student who was an amazing school singer fell down while he was climbing the ladder to his bed. Sadly, he landed on his head and it directly lead to his death.
His name is CHAO Luomeng. He is a young, handsome school singer who also has great academic grades. He was very popular in NUFE, won the second prize of“Best Singer”in 2013.He was also the core of the school chorus. He had a very charming voice and it attracted so many girls. I came to know him in 2012.He was a good friend of my good friend! I heard that once he was drunk, he screamed for a while to release his pressure. At that time, I got to know that behind his glamorous life, he also had a lot of burden to bear.
It was really a serious accident. So after this, our dormitory administrator reminded us of safety awareness over and over again. Due to several factors such as students’ weak safety awareness and university not paying so much attention to campus security, these tragedies happened, left injuries, took lives, and caused great pain to the victims ‘ families. Besides sending our great condolence, it can not but makes us think why such horrible accidents happen so frequently around us. School is the place that supposed to be safe, sadly the current situation doesn’t live up to people’s expectations at all.
So based on all the above our team did a research, trying to figure out how people feel about these accidents, who should be the most responsible, and most importantly, how to prevent so these tragedies won’t happen again.
First, how did he fall and get injured so badly while no one else has ever passed away through this? We got various answers. Some guessed that he wore a pair of wet slippers and couldn’t help slipping from the ladder. Others believed that his mind was not sober because of drinking too much so as to release pressure. Or he was just being careless. Since we were not there when the tragedy happened, we’ll never know the real reason. However, according to their answers, we can get that there are a number of things we must avoid when climbing ladders such as wearing wet slippers or being drunk. That’s too dangerous.
Second, the majority of people we asked held the view that when such things happen, students should take most of the responsibilities. They are all adults, totally capable of taking care of themselves. Schools and parents can’t protect them forever. They are supposed to be more careful in the dormitory, especially when climbing ladders. Some dangerous acts should be totally prevented. For example, standing on the ladder with one leg while talking with others. They also believed that not only the students themselves but also the university should be responsible for this accident. The university should remind students of the importance of safety constantly. Let them know where the possible dangers are. The university should have also taken effective methods to guarantee students ‘safety. Several things can be done, such as putting up well-marked signs beside the ladders, such as“Careful!”,“Hold on to the ladder”,or reconstructing the ladders, adding some safety facilities. What’s more, administrators of the dormitories should often remind students of safety awareness.
Anyway, all people ought to pay enough attention to safety. After all, nothing can be more precious than our lives. It is the premise of everything.
