Xie Qiao, 24, armed police soldier

Growing up in a remote village in Ningde city, Xie was always devoted to helping other people, motivating him to join the border force in Southwest China's Yunnan province.

The 24-year-old lad died during a rescue mission in Ludian county, Yunnan, on August 4, 2014, the day after a 6.5-magnitude earthquake. He was hit by fallen rocks and fell into a barrier lake.

Fujian Mountain Rescue Team

The accomplishments of the Fujian Mountain Climbing Association rescue team speak for themselves. The team of unpaid volunteers saved 465 lives over the last 13 years. Whenever there is an emergency on a mountain in Fuzhou, the "flying tigers" come to the rescue.

On weekends, the volunteers receive rescue trainings at a base. They also travel to remote areas to practice rescues..

"It is hard to describe how much pleasure and fulfillment you can get from a successful mission," said a member Huang Zhanping, "by saving a person's life, you get emotional yourself, too."
