Crane collapse kills seven people in China
BEIJING — Authorities said seven people were killed and two more injured when a crane leaned and collapsed on a construction site in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou.
The crane collapsed late Saturday at the construction site for the southern headquarters of the state-owned China Communications Construction Co. Ltd., which builds infrastructure and provides urban development. The city’s Haizhu district said investigators are looking into how it happened.
The company could not be reached for comment today.
Work safety is a concern in China, where safety regulations are often ignored.
The district said the two injured were in stable condition.
