Corina Knoll, A Family and a Dream, Shattered in an Instant. New York Times, Aor 20, 2022, at page A1.

Quote:

"GuiYing Ma 马桂英 and her husband, Zhanxin Gao 高占新, had ventured out of their city of Fushun, in northeastern China, only a handful of times。  They were both 56 years old, childhood schoolmates * * *
They were both 56 years old, childhood schoolmates * * * But in 2017 [when both were 56], they decided to apply for visas [to come to Queens, New York City]

"He [Gao] ended up working for his landlord [Yihung Hsieh] who ran a company that changed and cleaned grease filters in restaurant kitchens. Ms Ma * * * eventually stayed home * * * On the morning after Thanksgiving, [last year,] after her husband left for work, Ms Ma headed * * * out onto 103rd Street in the Corona neighborhood. She had taken to sweeping the sidewalks around a nearby vacant building owned by her landlord * * * She arrived at around 8 am at the building on 38th Avenue * * * =

Sent to Elmhurst Hospital, "Ms Ma soon went into surgery to address the bleeding in her brain. Part of her fractured skull was removed [to accommodate the swelling brain]. She required a tracheotomy — an incision in her windpipe — to help her breathe [with a machine]. A tube was inserted in her head to remove fluid. Another [feeding tube] went into her stomach to deliver food. * * * But on the night of Feb 22" Ma died

"Elisaul Perez, 33, was arrested at the scene the day of Ms Ma's attack.  An eyewitness told the police that Ms Ma had been sweeping when Mr Perez engaged her in an argument [I wpndered how they could argue; Presumably Ma knew no English]. Then, Mr Perez picked up a rock and hit her on the head, which knocked her unconscious and sent her sprawling, according to court documents.  Video surveillance showed Ms. Ma being struck again with the same object while on the ground.  Mr Perez had multiple prior arrests, including for robbery, public lewdness and assault.  In Ms. Ma’s case, Mr Perez was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon, but not with a hate crime, which often requires explicit evidence such as a racial slur. The Queens district attorney’s office is reviewing the charges in light of Ms Ma's death [which is expected to upgraded to manslaughter or murder]

US "Representative Grace Meng 孟昭文 [1975- ; of Taiwanese descent; US Representative 2013- ] advocated for Mr Gao at the hospital, which she said agreed to relieve him of unwieldy bills. She also coordinated an effort with [US] Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to intervene when a visa was initially denied to Mr Gao's son [and only child of course] who hoped to see his mother one last time.

"Mr Gao will depart for China this month, a widower, with his son and the ashes of a woman who deserved a peaceful end.

(i) Elmhurst Hospital Center

(1957- ; a 545-bed public hospital [owned by New York City] in the Elmhurst ['meaning "a grove of elms" ': Wikipedia] neighborhood of Queens)
(ii) The hurst in a name means "a wooded hill, Old English hyrst." Dictionary of American Family Names.

(b) in the quotation 3:"A tube was inserted in her head to remove fluid."

The tube is called a shunt.

Shunt Procedure. Department of Neurolog and Neurosurgery, Johns Hopkins Medicine, undated.
https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/ ... cedures/shunts.html
("A shunt is a hollow tube surgically placed in the brain (or occasionally in the spine)" to move CSF to another part of the body for reabsorption)
(i) The shunt goes to abdomen (ventriculo-peritoneal shunt), lung (ventriculo-pleural shunt) and heart (ventriculo-atrial shunt). Peritoneal cavity is lined with peritoneum 腹膜, and pleural cavity with pleura 胸膜, both of which can abdorb water. A human heart has two atria (plural of atrium 心房) an two ventricles 心室.
(ii) cerebrospinal fluid
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerebrospinal_fluid
(CSF; "There is about 125–150 mL of CSF at any one time. This CSF circulates [in and around brain and spinal cord] * * * CSF is derived from blood plasma and is largely similar to it, except that CSF is nearly protein-free * * * The brain produces roughly 500 mL of cerebrospinal fluid per day" t provide the protective buoyancy for the brain)

Brain is not solid but have cavities in its (brain's) midst. The cavities are ventricles 脑室, which proiduce CSF.
