All the so-called “oppressed” people in the US need to look at this guy and ask themselves, could they have done it, could they have made the dash for freedom under a hail of bullets??? This is what real oppression looks like. It breeds a desperation, unlike anything you will ever experience living here.
From The Daily Caller:
The North Korean soldier who was shot multiple times fleeing into South Korea at the border has regained consciousness, according to South Korean reports.
“Is this actually South Korea? I want to hear South Korean songs,” the man said after waking up in a South Korean medical facility, presumably curious as to whether or not he made it to the South, the JoongAng Daily introduced. The medical staff hung the South Korean flag in the man’s hospital room to comfort him, Yonhap News Agency revealed.
The suspected staff sergeant in his 20s made a mad dash into the South in the Joint Security Area at the Demilitarized Zone Monday. His comrades, apparently using weaponry not permitted in the JSA, opened fire on the defector. Amid a barrage of bullets, the young man’s brazen blitz was successful.
After collapsing in a pile of leaves, he was rescued by South Korean military personnel and airlifted to Ajou University Hospital in Suwon, South Korea, where he underwent two major surgeries to remove the bullets, pull roundworms from the man’s intestine, and combat infection, blood poisoning, and Hepatitis B.
The man appears to be recovering, but he is not quite out of the woods just yet.
“The soldier has regained consciousness and he requested to watch television,” a South Korean government official revealed to the Yonhap News Agency. “For the soldier’s psychological comfort, we’ve shown the patient South Korean movies and he has recovered enough to watch television.”
“The defector is able to express his thoughts to medical staff,” the official explained, “At this moment, we think that the patient has overcome a serious condition, [but] the defector is suffering from fear and heavy stress from the gunshots that wounded him.” The medical personnel tasked with the soldier’s care are treating mental scars as well as physical ailments.
What a blessing for this man to have been rescued by South Korea and receive excellent care in their hospital. I hope he fully recovers and can begin his new life with so much opportunity!!
Lord God, please cause him to recover mental and physical health, thrust the perfect laborer across his path to lead him to make Jesus his Savior and Lord, and grant him a long and blessed life, free from government oppression.
