This Day in 1989: April 3, 1990, Chai Ling and Feng Congde Escape to Hong Kong

On April 3, 1990, former student leaders Chai Ling and Feng Congde appeared in public for the first time on a TV station in Hong Kong. The married couple had spent the previous nine months hiding and on the run before reaching safety. Chai Ling spoke briefly on camera, thanking the hope, prayers, and care of their supporters: "no matter if you are in heaven, underground, prison, or overseas, please accept our heart-felt blessings."
