据CNN报道,此次袭击事件让奶奶身心都受到了伤害,不光眼睛和手腕肿了,而且情绪也不稳定,无法出门。谢萧珍奶奶的家人们在募捐网站GoFundMe上发起筹款,希望能筹集到给奶奶的治疗经费。

After Xiao Zhen Xie was punched in the face on March 17 in San Francisco in what police say was an unprovoked assault, she returned a punch of her own. "He bullies old people," Xie said in a video taken after the attack by CNN affiliate KPIX. "So I gave a punch."

After the attack, Xie suffered two black eyes, a swollen wrist, and post-traumatic stress disorder that made her too scared to step outside of her home, according to a GoFundMe page set up by her family to raise money for medical bills.

奶奶的家人原本希望能筹集到5万美元,但在袭击事件发生的一周之内,他们便收到了将近百万美元的善款。

如今,奶奶的家人表示,奶奶想把将所筹善款全部捐赠给亚裔美国人社区,以对抗种族主义。筹款发起者写道,谢晓珍坚持要做这个决定,认为这远比她自己的事更重要,并表示“我们不能向种族主义屈服,如果有必要,我们必须战斗到死。”( We must not summit to racism and we must fight to the death if necessary.)

筹款发起人还表示,目前奶奶的身体和精神状况都已有所好转。

The GoFundMe raised more than $930,000 within a week of the attack. The original goal was $50,000.

Now her family says Xie wants the money to go to the Asian American community to combat racism, saying the issue is bigger than her, according to the online fundraiser.

The page also says Xie's mental and physical health has improved. She can now open her injured eye and is "in better spirits."

据Yahoo News报道,警方已经确认了袭击谢萧珍奶奶的嫌疑男子身份,此前该男子还袭击了一名当时正在采购杂货的83岁越南裔老人。

San Francisco police have identified the suspect in the attack as 39-year-old Steven Jenkins. Police say that Jenkins was the perpetrator in a separate elderly attack of 83-year-old Vietnamese man, Ngoc Pham, who was shopping for groceries in the area.
