Didi Apologizes After Killing of Passenger
China's ride-sharing giant Didi Chuxing apologized on Thursday over the killing of a passenger in Zhengzhou last week, apparently by her driver, and said it had to win back the trust of users after the "tragedy."
Didi was "deeply saddened by and sorry about the tragedy," the company said in a statement.
The company had previously apologized to the family of the 21-year-old female flight attendant killed en route from the city's airport hotel to downtown.
"We need to step up to win the trust of our users. Our responsibilities in this case are undeniable," Didi said in a statement to Reuters.
Didi said police were looking for the person suspected to have killed the woman and it would work closely with law enforcement authorities on the case.
Didi, valued at $50 billion, is looking to make a big push outside China's borders. Last year, the company completed more than 7.4 billion rides, nearly double Uber's count.
