According to a report from Xinhua News Agency in Changchun on August 18, five netizens formed an “investigation group” and walked deep into Changbai Mountain because they did not believe a popular article about the model laborer Lv Qingsen on the Internet. They experienced the adventures of the forest while following the model worker.

Checking wires is not a simple outdoor sport

An article titled “How much farther will you go after 31 years of walking in forest alone?” recently caught great attention on the Internet. The hero of this article is Lv Qingsen. He is 51 years old this year and is a National May Day Labor Medalist. He has checked wires alone deep in Changbai Mountain for 31 years.

Is he a packaged model laborer? What’s wrong with him? In the midst of voices of doubt, several netizens suggested verifying the speculation at close range. Soon, five netizens from Beijing and Shanghai formed an “investigation group” and had planned to check wires with Lv and publish the facts they collected online.
