Bombing Victim Lu Lingzi Remembered Back Home

A Chinese newspaper has identified the third Boston Marathon bombing victim as Lu Lingzu, a Boston University graduate student, according to the Associated Press. Lu, from Shenyang, China, was studying statistics in Boston. A second Chinese national and BU student, Zhou Danling, was also injured in the blasts. She is listed in stable condition in a Boston hospital, according to Chinese officials.

Lu’s death has led to an outpouring from friends, family and concerned neighbors in China. Lu’s Sina Weibo page already has 20,000 comments from shocked and upset friends (Sina Weibo is a Chinese social media service that combines Twitter- and Facebook-like features). 

A former neighbor in China was elegiac when talking about Lu on his Sina Weibo page.

“I saw her grow up, and a few scenes from the past are flashing through my mind. Now, she’s becoming a girl, a bit Westernized, but a loud bang has changed everything,” wrote Zhang Xinbo. “I think of her loved ones, and I don’t know how they are coping with this painful news, while still searching for any thread of hope.”  read more
