China building collapse claims seven

The simultaneous collapse of four residential buildings in eastern China claimed at least seven lives in February.

According to news agency Xinhua, the five-storey buildings collapsed early in the morning of 2 February in Dahui village, Baizhangji townshi, Wenzhou, an industrial city in eastern China’s Zhejiang Province. The collapse reportedly killed seven and buried a further nine.

An investigation is being carried out into the cause.

Safety issues around building construction have been a serious concern in China which has seen rapid urbanisation in the last decade. This most recent disaster follows the death of 22 people in the same region when they homes collapsed in October 2016.
