According to a post at NGA, the largest WoW community in China, a World of Warcraft player named Yang, who is a 32-year-old dentist in real life, stabbed by a criminal and died protecting his patients and a child outside the clinic. It happened in the morning of January 24 in Wuhan, a city in the middle of China.

The post was made by a witness who worked in the clinic and also a WoW player. He wrote in the post:
Yang would have survived if he didn't come out and fight the criminal barehanded. He wouldn't get stabbed multiple times if he didn't go out and save the child that was threatened by the criminal. He wouldn't have had that courage if he himself was a selfish man.
The post said Yang's guild was in the middle of a raid when the guild leader learned and announced the horrible news. There were over 30 guild members at that time.
The post was created yesterday and it has received over 600 comments by now. People memorize and honor the brave man in a World of Warcraft way (see the image below).
