Subtext of the Naked Doctor

Xinhua has the story of a selfless doctor who rushed to her fellow doctor's aid, forgetting she was naked:
The doctor, surnamed Tang, heard her neighbor Doctor Chen scream in a next-door bathroom at about 11 p.m. Sunday when she was having a bath in her clinic’s dormitory building in Pingshan Subdistrict, Longgang. She thought Chen must be in danger after he did not respond when she called out for him.

Tang rushed out of the bathroom in such a hurry that she forgot to put on clothes. After the security guards broke the door, she found Chen lying unconscious and stopping breathing with the shower head in his hand.

Tang asked security guards to cut off the electricity and began artificial respiration on Chen. Chen’s heart began to beat again about five minutes later.

Link. Okay, I don't mean to be critical and suspicious of a good deed, but . . . well, that's exactly what I'm doing. Let's imagine that the story is a little different. Let's imagine that Doctor Tang was schtupping Doctor Chen in his dorm room, and that she didn't want anyone to know about it. They were both naked, and he takes a shower and ends up injured. She saves him, still nude, but by that time other help has arrived and she has to explain her presence. So she explains that she, too, was taking a shower and ran naked to save her friend.

I'm not saying that's what really happened. I'm just saying, imagine.
