After Massive Online Search For Lu Lingzi, Chinese Netizens Express Grief
"She died in America, and that's why we know her name." Friends and family use Chinese social media to try and find the third victim of the Boston bombings, and then to mourn her.
According to China's IFeng News, Lu Lingzi's parents anxiously waited for their daughter to call home after the Boston Marathon explosions. They learned from TV reports that another Chinese student had been injured, and they asked local media to use Weibo (a Twitter-like microblogging site) to contact Lu's Boston roommate. They also asked a family friend in the US to drive to Boston.
