CHINA-HEILONGJIANG-SANITATION WORKER (CN)

(130117) -- HARBIN, Jan. 17, 2013 (Xinhua) -- Sanitation worker Yang Weixia works in the middle of a road in Harbin, capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, Jan. 16, 2013. Yang Weixia, 48, is an ordinary sanitation worker living in Harbin, a city known for its bitterly cold winters and often called the Ice City. For 32 years, Yang has never stopped sweating away at her work, though she often gets up at three o'clock every morning and will not go back home until 9 in the evening in the cold winter. There are more than 10,000 sanitation workers like Yang serving for the city. This year, the city was hit by several cold fronts with its lowest temperature often lingering below minus 30 Celsius. This causes sanitation workers here often suffer from frostbite and to work overtime. (Xinhua/Wang Jianwei) (lfj)
