Ride-hailing services provider Huolala has come under fire in the wake of the death of a 23-year-old woman in Changsha, Hunan Province, who hired a moving van and driver from the platform and jumped out of the vehicle while it was traveling.
 

The young woman, surnamed Che, was hit by passing traffic at around 9:30 p.m. on February 6 when she exited the van through the window of its front passenger seat. She was later pronounced dead in a hospital on February 10 after suffering serious head injuries.
 

According to Che’s older brother, the driver picked up the victim on the night of the incident from her old apartment. After loading the vehicle with boxes of household goods, she took a ride with the driver to her new place of residence. During the ride, which was supposed to take around 20 minutes, Che messaged her colleagues on WeChat about work-related issues. It was her last communication with anyone prior to her sudden jump.
 

The brother said that while checking Huolala's app on Che’s phone, he discovered that the driver had veered off the app’s recommended route three times. While Che didn’t warn anyone that her safety was in jeopardy while en route, her family suspected that the driver’s “unusual behavior” was related to Che’s “extreme action,” according to Che’s uncle.
 

In a statement released on February 21, Huolala confirmed Che’s death but offered no explanation as to why she jumped from the moving van or why the driver deviated from the route suggested by the app. “We feel deep sorrow and regret about the unfortunate event,” the company said, adding that while its initial conversation with Che’s family, which took place right after her death, was not very fruitful, it would continue holding closed-door meetings with them and cooperating with an ongoing investigation carried out by the police.
 

However, on Weibo, a person who claimed to be Che’s younger brother painted a different picture of Huolala's handling of the situation. In a lengthy, emotion-packed post, the person, writing on behalf of Che’s family, accused the company of ignoring their needs and feelings when Che was hospitalized.
 

He also raised questions about driver-screening process and its app’s lack of a feature that allowed passengers to record audio or video of their rides. “Why did the driver choose what seemed like a longer route that didn’t have surveillance cameras? Was there a premeditated attack? Did Huolala do enough to vet its drivers?” he wrote. “As a provider of car-hailing services, why didn’t Huolala have any measures in place to ensure customer safety?”
 

Although there has been no definite word on what caused Che to take the fatal leap, her death has cast doubt on how safe it is for women in China to use ride-hailing services.
 

23岁女孩搬家途中跳车身亡, 司机已被释放

2月21日晚,一则“23岁女生车莎莎在货拉拉车上跳窗身亡”引发热议。无录音无录像的“偏航说”更让整件事充满疑点。
 

车莎莎的弟弟称,2月6日晚上8点,姐姐从天一美庭搬家到梅溪湖步步高公寓,车程约10公里。2月6日晚上9点17分车莎莎上了货拉拉的车,9点24分,车莎莎还在工作群和同事互动,看不出有情绪异常。车莎莎的弟弟称,当晚9点30分,车子开到曲苑路时,货拉拉司机拨打了120和110,说车莎莎因为面包车三次偏航,在岳麓区曲苑路跳车了,120赶到现场时,车莎莎已经倒在了血泊中昏迷不醒,被紧急送到岳麓区航天医院抢救。经过4个小时的手术抢救,车莎莎当晚暂时脱离生命危险转至重症监护室。但后续因车莎莎身体又出现多项恶化,经抢救无效后于2月10日不幸离世。
 

22日上午,记者联系上车莎莎的叔叔车细强等家属,并进一步了解到事件详细情况。车莎莎的叔叔车细强告诉记者,今年23岁的车莎莎前年大学刚毕业,在湖南长沙某公司从事人力招聘工作。车莎莎叔叔表示侄女搬家当晚没有任何异常:“9点十几分的时候她都还在和她阿姨也就是我爱人聊天说刚装好行李。”根据车莎莎同事的群截图显示,21点24分时车莎莎还在同事群中分享趣事。“我们都不敢相信在她还在给同事发消息的6分钟后她会跳车自杀。”车莎莎叔叔表示至今无法理解侄女经历了什么才会选择跳车。
 

22日下午,记者又联系了车莎莎的另一位亲属,该亲属称,就在车莎莎跳车的前几天,由于业绩突出,她刚拿到了2000元工资。“她爷爷正好快要过生日了,她那几天就在和她妈妈讨论,说想送给爷爷一个生日礼物。另外还想给她弟弟包个红包。她还想在长沙买个房子,付个首付。她爸爸跟她说,闺女加油,老爸借钱也支持你。”这位亲属告诉记者,那段时间,她正憧憬着未来。
 

家属后来得知,因证据不足,涉事司机三天后便被警方释放。该说法目前未得到警方证实,据悉警方还在进行调查。
