Song Yin, China's first female search and rescue captain, has been working with the East China Sea flying service of China's Ministry of Transport. In the past 14 years, she has participated in rescue flight missions for more than 1,000 hours and successfully rescued over 220 people from the sea. She was granted China Youth May 4th Medal.

China last week awarded 122 individuals and 33 groups and organizations the 26th national May 4th Medals to mark their great contributions to the country in crucial fields. Many frontline personnel and groups who have been protecting people's lives and property were on the list.

The awarding of the China Youth May 4th Medal began in 1997 and usually takes place around China's Youth Day on May 4.
