On the 2nd anniversary, we continue to remember and grieve over the tragic and senseless loss of Lu Lingzi who was killed in the Boston Bombing on 4/15/2013.
BEIJING (AP) — The third person killed in the Boston Marathon bombings was a Chinese graduate student at Boston University originally from China’s northeastern city of Shenyang, a state-run Chinese newspaper reported Wednesday.
The Shenyang Evening News said on its official Twitter-like microblog account that the victim’s name is Lu Lingzi. An editor at the newspaper said that Lu’s father confirmed his daughter’s death when reporters visited the family home. The editor declined to give his name because he was not authorized to speak to foreign media….
Lu graduated from a Shenyang high school and studied international trade at Beijing Institute of Technology before she went to the United States to study statistics as a graduate student at Boston University, according to media reports, Lu’s friends and her own Facebook page.
Chinese are the largest contingent of foreign students at U.S. colleges and universities. Last year, nearly 200,000 Chinese were enrolled in U.S. higher education institutions, and Massachusetts had almost 10,000 Chinese students on its college campuses, according to the Institute of International Education.
