Among the 37 victims of Saturday's rainstorm in Beijing was Ding Zhijian, who drowned after his vehicle became stuck in 4 meters of water in downtown near Guangqumen Bridge.
The 34-year-old editor of children's magazine Aaxiong was driving to his office around 7 pm when his Hyundai SUV stalled in a flooded area under the bridge.
The water quickly rose and swallowed his car and four others within a halfhour. The water pressure made it impossible for Ding to open his door.
