Girl Falls off Building and Dies in Quanzhou, Boyfriend Kisses Her Deeply For a Long Time, Unwilling to Leave Her

Yesterday [June 25th] morning at 9 o’clock, in a Fujian Quanzhou downtown alleyway between Quanxiu Street and Dengfu Street, a 22-year old woman accidentally slipped and fell from the fifth floor roof of a building, and died instantly. The boyfriend arrived upon hearing the news, and in great pain and sorrow he held the body in his arms, calling his girlfriend’s name again and again. Over half an hour passed and under the persuasions of the police, he gently cleaned the bloodstains on his girlfriend’s face, tidied up her cloths, her hair, and gave her one last kiss…

The building where Xiao Jing fell.

The police very soon found out that the deceased woman was called Xiao Jing (pseudonym), and was 22 years old. Her hometown was Sanming. She was working at the Quanzhou Dayang Department Store, and in March of this year rented and moved into a place on the fifth floor of this apartment building next to the alley together with her boyfriend Xiao Li. When the incident took place, it was just her on the fifth floor. At 11 am, a young man in a white shirt ignored the police blocking him to run to the deceased woman’s body. He was the girl’s boyfriend Xiao Li, who upon hearing what happened had just rushed back. Seeing Xiao Jing lying in cold blood, Xiao Li’s legs gave way, and he knelt down besdie Xiao Jing. His shaking hands slowly lifted the plastic that covered her head, his body began to twitch, and tears came streaming down from his eyes. Kneeling on the ground, he gently caressed his girlfriend’s cheeks, unable to stop the warm tears from dripping down. On her cold cheeks, Xiao Jing’s eyes would never open again. More than half an hour passed, and Xiao Li gradually calmed down. Holding back his tears, he used his hands to gently clean the bloodstains off of Xiao Jing’s face and hands. After tidying up her pajamas and her messy hair, he bent down, and quietly kissed his girlfriend. Then, Xiao Li sat back down on the ground again, picked up Xiao Jing, held her in his arms, and for a long time refused to leave. Under the persuasions of the police, Xiao Li gave his girlfriend one final, deep kiss.

From LongHoo:


The police’s preliminary determined that the girl had slipped and fell off the building by accident

Yesterday [June 25th], after receiving the report, the Fengze Public Security Sub-Bureau Quanxiu Local Police Station police and the Fengze Criminal Investigation Brigade police arrived at the scene. By checking the cell phone on the body, they reached the family members of the deceased, and meanwhile, questioned eyewitnesses and the landlord. According to what they have learned, there are more than ten units in this building. The fifth floor roof is a public shared place, with half of its space taken up by a pigeon loft, and the other half used as a place for hanging laundry out to dry. At the edge of the fifth floor roof, there is a stainless steel stairway to the sixth floor roof, with a handrail, and is about one meter high.

As for the cause of Xiao Jing’s death, after investigation the police think she fell from the stairway on the fifth floor roof, landed on her head and died, and no other bruises were found on the body. On the spot of the fifth floor roof where Xiao Jing fell, the floor and the stainless steel stairway were slippery, there was a trace left by Xiao Jing on the handrail, and there were no signs of struggle.

Based on these facts, the police have reached a preliminary determination, that Xiao Jing had slipped on the stairway at the edge of the roof by accident, and fell from the fifth floor.


Recall of the Past

The two were in Love for years, having come to Quanzhou together to work


“Xiao Jing was a good girl.” Xiao Li’s father Mr. Li says, his son and Xiao Jing are both from Sanming, and the two of them were together ever since high school. After they had finished high school, Xiao Li went to study at a junior college in Zhaozhou, while Xiao Jing came to study at a junior college in Quanzhou. Although they were separated in two different places, their relationship was always good over these years, and Xiao Li would often bring Xiao Jing to his home for visits. After graduation, Xiao Li came to Quanzhou, rented a house together with Xiao Jing and looked for work. Xiao Li ran around for business, and Xiao Jing worked at Dayang Department Store.

A few days ago, Xiao Jing quit her job at the department store. The morning when the accident happened, she had been at home in their rented apartment, and Xiao Li had just left for work. After the fall, the police informed Xiao Jing’s father first. It wasn’t until nearly noon did Xiao Li learn that something had happened to his girlfriend and rushed back. “Our two families were already discussing marriage,” Xiao Li’s father said. Xiao Jing had left a good impression on Xiao Li’s family, and the two families were discussing their engagement, only to be delayed because Xiao Jing wanted to wait until she found a steady job first.

She was already an adult, if this wasn’t safe enough, then she needs to move into a jail.

凤凰网海南省海口市网友:lishang333: (responding to above)

There is an inside story. The landlord tried to rape her when she was alone, she resisted, fled to the roof, slipped and fell and died.

凤凰网安徽省宣州市网友 yangjun71: (responding to ibf8799)

Are you still human?

凤凰网安徽省蚌埠市网友 千与千寻890612: (responding to ibf8799)

The woman’s already dead, and we can’t even ask any questions?! Do you have a conscience or not?

凤凰网辽宁省网友 走天涯闯码头:

A man of love and faith, marry her in another life, she smiles at you from heaven.

凤凰网江苏省苏州市网友 ifengxxj:

Frankly speaking, with many cheap rental buildings, the landlords always build extra stories, the stairways are steep, and the safety precautions really aren’t good. But the rent is very cheap, poor people live in them, really nothing can be done about it. If you’re dead, you’re dead. There are no consequences when poor people die, so one must strive to become rich, work hard!

凤凰网广东省深圳市网友 biocr:

They are a couple of true lovers, only now they’re in two different worlds! Sigh.

凤凰网山东省荷泽市网友 中国山东曹州:

Truly a man in love.

凤凰网美国网友 kentau:

May Buddha have mercy, may there be less pain upon all the living.

凤凰网广东省深圳市网友 ssyygyrgm:

A stairway like that truly is a crime. Sigh, having seen too many crimes of passion, to see true love like this is really moving. But it’s such a shame that they are separated by death. Let the deceased rest in peace, and may the living remain strong for life. Amitabha.

凤凰网湖北省武汉市网友 kelao:

Namo Amitabha!

凤凰网广东省广州市网友 libaihong:

The bastards who should die don’t, while the poor good people are always losing their lives!

凤凰网局域网网友 手机用户:

Rest in peace, sad.

凤凰网广东省梅州市网友 川隆旺田:

“Ask the world what love is” [this is what love is]. So touching! Rest in peace!


An accident happens to a friend from afar, and causes two people to be worlds apart, cherish life, cherish love! Cherish!

凤凰网山东省青岛市网友 吴玉楼:

Quanzhou people have been faithful to love ever since ancient times, the love story of Chen San and Wu Niang came out of Quanzhou. So touched, sigh!

[Note: Chen San and Wu Niang were in love, but Wu Niang’s greedy father engaged her to a local rich man. Chen San then sold himself to be the rich man’s slave, in order to get close to Wu Niang. With the help of Wu Niang’s maid, Chen San and Wu Niang later ran away together.]
