The protesters alleged that the school’s security guards did not open the gate for them to take the victim to the hospital after the accident, leading to the victim’s death. They said the victim would have survived if he had been allowed to be taken to the hospital.

According to an eyewitness, the protest had led to a serious traffic logjam on the busy expressway.
