BEIJING -- China's Internet users have selected nine individuals and one group of people as China's "Good Samaritans" for the third quarter of 2017.

The winners were announced and honored Thursday at an event sponsored by Xinhua News Agency.

The Good Samaritans include Lin Qihui, who taught himself first-aid and helped save strangers in danger.

Yang Jun has spent 13 years setting up charity projects in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and raising funds of more than 10 million yuan ($1.5 million) to help more than 100,000 children from all ethnic groups in the region.

Other winners include Li Juan, who was paralysed due to disease, but persevered to start a business, inspiring the people around her.

A group of more than 10 divers in Zhuhai city in South China's Guangdong province were honored for their selfless deeds in saving people trapped underwater.

Since 2010, the online vote has been held quarterly to promote ordinary people's deeds and inspire others.
