Justin, please read the article before making comments, the foreigners were passengers in the taxis and bike, not the driver of the racing cars. I was just at the University registering, so there were a lot of foreigners around Haizhu the last few days. This could have very easily been me inside that taxi. I feel terrible for the lives lost yesterday, one of the foreigners dead could have been somebody I was just standing in line with yesterday to register for classes at the university. What an eerie thought that their lives were destroyed by someone who refused to quit drinking, even when his friends told him to stop.
