外文标题：Didn’t protect her, moans stampede victim’s BF
SHANGHAI: Like tens of thousands of other revelers, 24-year-old Pan Haiqin decided to ring in the New Year on Shanghai's famed waterfront, as the skyscrapers across the Huangpu River flashed and sparkled. But as the crowd grew and turned into an out-of-control crush of bodies, the real estate professional never made it up the steps to see the lights.
Nearly 20 hours later, her parents and friends identified her trampled body in a city morgue, one of 36 people killed in one of the deadliest accidents to hit this showcase Chinese city.
With another 49 people injured, hundreds of family members mourned the dead, who were predominantly young and female. And on social media and TV airwaves, many Chinese were asking how such a tragedy could have taken place in one of the country's most high-profile urban areas.
"I blame myself for it. I did not protect her," said Pan's boyfriend, Zhao Weiwei, his eyes welling up with tears. "She was a cheerful woman who worked so hard in this city."
Really pitiable.Many Husbands and wives make life miserable for their spouses. Nobody helps. When one goes to the courts the courts give more trouble than solve them as Divorce will not be given if one spouse opposes it. That is the problem. The children of such marriages suffer.
A country like China and India such incident is unavoidable due to over population.
why to celebrate English or any other new year like this??? Even the west has curtailed back their celebrations through time. Too much celebration of New year even in my city Kolkata...... Too much of anything .... any ism is bad.......

China Government should ask Organizers of all the mass gathering events / functions, to submit plans giving details of the people attending the functions/ events & arrangements made with safe exit in case of emergency & Organizers should get the prior permission before going ahead , China Government to depute sufficient police force with Fire Brigade & Medical Staff to deal with any mishap
