1989 Participant's Profile: Qian Jin (钱 缙)
Qian Jin (钱 缙)， student of Beijing's Economics and Trade University. On the night of June 3, 1989, at about 10:00 p.m., Qian was returning home by bicycle with a classmate surnamed Yuan. They had just turned into Beifengwo Road having passed Muxudi, when they encountered martial law troops firing from the west toward the east. In a spray of gunfire, many people at the side of the road were hit. Both Qian and Yuan were hit in the abdomen by bullets, and were taken to the Railways General Hospital. Because one of Qian's arteries had been severed, he died in the hospital on June 5. His ashes are in Suzhou.
