Finally, there is the result from the Beijing authorities, after they announced to the public on Tuesday that they were still counting the number of people left dead in the worst-ever Beijing rainstorm in six decades when facing the questioning from the public on the initial death toll of 37.
A total of 77 people were reported on Thursday evening by the Beijing flood control headquarters to have died from the storm. And a detailed list was also posted on the municipal government’s official Sina Weibo account, including the victims’ names, gender, ID numbers, birthplaces and locations where they were found.
According to State-run Xinhua Agency, the identities of 66 bodies have now been confirmed, while the remaining 11 are awaiting to be identified.
“Of the 77 victims, 66 have been identified, including five people who died while carrying out rescue work, Pan Anjun, a spokesman for the headquarters, said Thursday night.
Of the other 61 victims — 36 men and 25 women — 46 drowned, five were electrocuted, three died in housing collapses, two by mudslide, two by traumatic shock, two from being hit by falling objects and one was struck by lightning, Pan said.”
The spokesman also said that it is not likely to happen that there will be a further sharp increase in death toll, as their search for missing persons is coming to an end.
Then for the delay in reaching this final death count, he explained, “it was difficult to comb through the rain-triggered mudslide debris and identifying the bodies also took time.”
Netizens welcomed the update, though it is obvious that the officials were forced to raise the death toll.

Recently, a policewoman from Jiangxi province received a storm of attack from netizens for making discriminatory remarks against sex workers on Sina Weibo, which ultimately forced her to close her account.
The incident started when a netizen tweeted a video showing two naked sex trade workers cried when questioned by police on Sina Weibo, which soon aroused indigniation among the netizens dennouncing that the police officers were actually more shameless than the whoremongers as it was an assault too wihtout covering the naked girls up while questioning them.
The policewoman, nicknamed 女警薇博, read the entry too one day, and defended the police by criticising the sex workers, “Now you knew to cry in front of the police, why did not you cry before your clients?”
The discriminatory remarks immediately triggered an onslaught of the negative comments from netizens aginst her on her Weibo account.
The overwhelmed policeman made apologies the following days, but many netizens did not let it go and even dug out her old photos showing that she was carrying luxury products such as LV and Chanel bags while travelling.
Under the pressure, the policeowman eventually deleted almost all of her posts, removed off her verification (as a policewoman), and changed her account name as well.
Reporters later reached the public security bureau in Ganxian county, Jiangxi province, where the woman was serving, they said they have started investigating into the case, but the policewoman was not avaible as she has turned off her mobile phone for too much pressure.

Scantily-clad showgirls are still the highlight of the largest annual digital gaming expo in China attracting tens of thousands of Otaku die-hards to have a visit, though there’s the notice from the relevant authority to crack down on “vulgarity” and more male models and cross-dressers are hired to showcase game products this time too.
But who’s the first-day star among so many beautiful and sexy babes of the ChinaJoy 2012 that opened to the public in Shanghai on Thursday?
The answer definitely is,
The latest Athena cosplay by a 22-year-old babe, named Li Ling (李玲) from Hunan.
Innocent look and short costume to make her lace panties and shape of her private part visible to the masses. People were outrageously impressed!
Soon, more information of the post-90s girl was published too, as her Athena cosplay photos went viral online.
In fact, the Hunan-born beauty attended last year’s ChinaJoy as well, but she did not catch the public’s eyes. She also worked as a Tao Girl (a model hired by merchants at China’s largest shopping site Taobao to pose for products), and co-starred some online micro-films.
But she only became known in this year’s game fair. Obviously, she was determined to sell her out now.
Check below more photos of her.
