A “worker for life and peace” breathes his last breath


The burning heart of a man called a “worker for life and peace” has made its last beat.

Baek Nam-ki, 69, was admitted to critical care at Seoul National University Hospital last November after being struck by a cold jet from a water cannon while participating in a popular indignation protest. On Sep. 23, his condition began to rapidly deteriorate. His kidneys weakened, preventing the administration of drugs, and family members and acquaintances rushed to his site after the medical team informed them he was unlikely to survive the weekend. Baek‘s family held out slim hopes, recalling his recovery from similar symptoms in July. But Baek finally passed away at 1:58 pm on Sep. 25 - one day after his birthday.

“Police still have the funeral home surrounded, but we thank everyone for their condolence wishes and are preparing to give our father a proper farewell. We will win,” daughter Doraji tweeted.
