20岁女孩乘滴滴顺风车遇害,一场原本可以避免的悲剧__双语新闻

A ride-sharing passenger in the eastern Chinese city of Wenzhou was raped and killed by a driver for China’s largest ride-hailing firm, local police said on Saturday, the latest violent crime to fuel safety concerns about the service.

当地警方周六表示,中国东部城市温州的一名顺风车乘客被一名司机强奸并杀害,这名司机服务于中国最大的叫车公司。此次事件是最新的一起暴力犯罪,引发了人们对该服务的安全担忧。

Didi Chuxing, the biggest ride-sharing firm globally by number of trips, was “immensely saddened by the tragedy,” it said in a statement.

该公司在一份声明中表示,全球最大的打车公司滴滴出行“对这场悲剧感到非常难过”。

“We are deeply sorry. We fell short of your expectations. We can’t and we won’t shirk from our responsibilities,” it said.

“我们深感抱歉。我们没有达到你的期望。我们不能、也不会逃避我们的责任,”该公司发文称。

Following the incident, Zhejiang province, where Wenzhou is located, ordered Didi to suspend its carpooling service there while the company addressed safety issues, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

据官方媒体新华社报道,事故发生后,温州所在的浙江省,要求滴滴暂停顺风车服务,同时滴滴也在处理安全问题。

Didi has been stepping up safety measures including for its carpooling service, Didi Hitch, after the murder of a flight attendant in May sparked wider community outrage.

自5月份一名空姐被谋杀引发广泛不满后,滴滴出行加强了安全措施,包括顺风车服务—滴滴出行。

The steps include limiting Didi Hitch drivers to picking up passengers of the same sex during early morning and late evening hours.

这些措施包括限制滴滴出行的司机在清晨和傍晚时分只能接送同性别乘客。

Police in Yueqing city, which is part of Wenzhou, said on their official microblog that the 20-year-old woman, surnamed Zhao, got into a Didi carpool vehicle at 1 p.m. on Friday, and sent a message to a friend at around 2 p.m. seeking help before losing contact.

温州的乐清市警方在其官方微博上说,这名20岁的姓赵的女子上周五下午1点乘坐了顺风车,并在下午2点左右向一位朋友发送信息寻求帮助,然后失去联系。

Police said they found the suspect, a 27-year-old driver called Zhong, at about 4 a.m. on Saturday. They said Zhong confessed to raping and killing the passenger, and that the victim’s body had been recovered and an investigation was continuing.

警方说,他们在周六凌晨4点左右发现了这名27岁的姓钟的司机。他们说,钟承认强奸并杀害了这名乘客,受害者的尸体已经被找到,调查仍在继续。

Didi said the driver had passed background checks and had logged in with his authentic ID and had been confirmed by facial recognition on the day. However, the driver had altered the car’s licence plate before the trip, the company said.

滴滴说,这名司机已经通过了背景调查,并使用了他的真实身份证件,同时在当天也得到了面部识别的确认。不过,该公司表示,司机在出行前更换了汽车牌照。

A day earlier, a passenger had complained to Didi that the same driver had repeatedly requested that she sit in the front seat, drove to a remote area, and followed her “for a distance” after she got out of the car, Didi said. It said the customer service representative who took the complaint had not followed up with an investigation within two hours, as the firm promises.

滴滴称一天前,一名乘客曾向滴滴投诉称此司机曾多次要求她坐在前排,并将车开到偏远地区,在她下车后还尾随她一段距离。该公司表示,接受投诉的客户服务代表并没有像公司承诺的那样在两小时内跟进调查。
