CONCORD — Dragon Star, a Chinese food restaurant in Concord, will be closed for three weeks in respect for its' owner who passed away saving children in late August.
Thai M. Chinh, 39 of Concord, died after diving in to help the child who began to struggle while swimming under Profile Falls on the Smith River in Bristol.
Members of Chinh’s family make up the entire staff of the 75 S. Main St. restaurant, and they worried the public wouldn’t know why it temporarily closed, Melissa Louf, a teacher at Abbot-Downing School told the Concord Monitor.
Chinh did not know how to swim. He took his boys and his nieces to the falls in order to do something fun before school started. When the 8-year-old boy began to struggle, Chinh dove in, fully-clothed, to rescue him, the Monitor reports.
The kids were pulled from the water and are reportedly okay. Locals called Chinh a hero.
The Chinh family will take the next three weeks in order to mourn Chinh. They hope to re-open in late September.
