All his friends knew Wong Fuk-wing, 46, was a charitable person. But when he said it would be a blessing to die for charity, few believed it would actually be his destiny.

Yesterday, a casket with the body of the Hong Kong truck driver was in a memorial hall near Xining, the capital of Qinghai Province.

Wong died in the aftershocks of the devastating earthquake that flattened a mountainous town in Qinghai last Wednesday.

He was crushed under houses after pushing four people, including three orphans, to safer ground.

Clad in black and holding white flowers, people streamed into the hall to pay their last respects to the fallen hero. Many were strangers who only learned of Wong's story from the media. They stopped at his casket to lay chrysanthemums.

On the muddy road leading to the hall, young students held paper banners printed with the Chinese characters of Wong's nickname.

"He was a selfless person," said an official of Ci Xing Xi Yuan Hui Orphanage, where Wong worked.

"He managed to stay safe when the earthquake first struck," said an official who only gave his name as Ah Chou.

"But when he saw three kids were trapped in the rubble, he returned. Then, the aftershock struck."

Wong worked as a driver in Hong Kong and spent three months every year toiling for charity.

In 2002, he participated in a charity walk from Hong Kong to Beijing to raise funds for the China Marrow Foundation.

In 2008 he threw himself into the reconstruction of southwest China's Sichuan Province after an 8.0-magnitude earthquake killed at least 70,000 people there.

Zhao Lin, Wong's friend at the orphanage, says Wong had come to the impoverished plateau to do charity work several times before.

Zhao once asked Wong about the dangers of altitude sickness.

Wong replied, "If I die while doing charity, it will be a blessing."

"If he hadn't died, he would still be helping others right now," Zhao says.

Wong's body is expected to be flown to his family in Hong Kong later Sunday.
