-Zhang Shuai(born1985) who became disabled after he accidentally fell from a building in May 2006 during an attempt to escape from a raid by immigration police. The fall left him with brain damage and a paralyzed left arm and leg. A high court granted workplace accident compensation to him considering the fact he was told to escape by his employer, overruling a lower court's ruling that rejected the crippled worker's request for medical fee coverage.
