As for the location of the incident, Chen Jianyu said: "This landslide didn't actually happen in our park, but next to the road two or three kilometers away."

He said that the "Father Organic Farm" is mainly based on organic farming, but since 2017, camping camps have been opened to allow parents to bring their children to the farm to camp and get close to nature. He said that the farm is not mainly camping, but mainly organic farming. Therefore, government departments such as the Agricultural Bureau often visit the farm for inspections.

Chen Jianyu and Chen Zhichuan also bowed to the victims, wounded and family members of the accident at the press conference. "We would like to express our deep condolences to the deceased who died in this unfortunate accident and regret that this happened. I would like to bow to all the deceased and injured. We are also very grateful to the search and rescue team and the police for their help."
