失踪  [10]

 

四点半的时候,车子追上了余纯顺。组员们下了车,追着正在行走的余纯顺问这问那。余纯顺一边擦汗,一边笑着对他们说,”从出发到现在,我一次没休息。今天会早点睡,明天早点走。剩下的路我一天半就能走完!”

组员们又上了车,接着向前进桥开去。在他们的计划里,前进桥是余纯顺两天后和他们会合的地方. 余纯顺一边走,一边向车子里的组员们挥手。”我们前进桥见!”他大声说。

与余纯顺告别后,摄制组的车向前进桥开去。第二天中午,也就是6月12日,他们开到了前进桥。这里是他们的新营地,他们会在这里等待余纯顺。按计划,余纯顺会在6月13日与他们会合。

6月12日晚饭的时候,一阵大风卷着沙土向他们扑来。正要吃晚饭的组员们忙钻进车子里。他们明白这是沙尘暴来了。沙尘暴一直没停,到6月13日早上,风还很大。组员们开始担心余纯顺的处境。他们等了一天,余纯顺没有出现。

Missing  [10]

Around 4 o’clock, the car caught up with Yu Chun Shun. The crews jumped out of their car and surrounded Yu with this and that questions. Yu Chun Shun answered them with a smile while wiping away sweat, “From start to now I haven’t had a single break. I’m going to sleep early today and get up early tomorrow. The rest of the journey, I should be able to finish within one and half day.”

The crews got back in their car and went on driving to Qian Jin Bridge. In their plan, that was the place that Yu Chun Shun supposed to join them two days later. Yu Chun Shun waved and shouted to them while walking, “Let’s meet at Qian Jin Bridge!”

Bidding good bye to Yu Chun Shun, the TV crews kept driving toward Qian Jin Bridge. At noon next day, June 12, they arrived at Qian Jin Bridge, which became a new campsite for them. They would have to stay there and wait for Yu Chun Shun. Yu Chun Shun would meet them there on June 13.

In the following evening of June 12, a burst of sandy gusty wind roared toward them. They realized that it was sandstorm. The sandstorm didn’t stop. Even till the morning of June 13, the wind was still strong. They started to worry about Yu Chun Shun. They waited for him for the whole day, he didn’t show up.
