13 Story Building in Shanghai Falls Over Spontaneously

I saw this while clicking around on Tom.com's news section:

An entire 13 story building under construction collapsed at 6am on June 27th.   Not sure if they know exactly why yet.

According to this report, at least 1 person died in the collapse.

Its pretty sturdy though, it stayed in one piece!

wow,  if you pre-bought one of the condos in the next tower over, I'm guessing you've just decided to rethink your next move.  :-P

from - http://post.news.tom.com/s/9A000AB2967.html 东方网记者乔礼、毛丽君、曹磊、杜丽华6月27日报道:今晨六时许,上海市莲花南路莲花河畔小区 一幢在建13层楼房倒塌。东方网记者事发后立即赶赴现场,但警方拒绝记者进入。据目击者称,现场有人死亡,但东方网目前还未得到进一步证实( 经新华网消息证实,已有一名工人死亡)。 东方网记者在现场看到,现场严格警戒,任何闲人和记者都不允许入内。很多警方人员在现场维持秩序,还有救护车在事发现场。 一位目击者告诉东方网记者,他用手机拍下了从现场抬出来的一个人人,那人被白布包裹着,很可能已经死亡。据说,这个人是今天早晨进楼拿工具的工人。 据新华网报道, 在事故中丧身的工人为安徽籍民工,姓肖,28岁。事发时,他正在楼里取工具,楼房倒塌前他未来得及逃出不幸丧生 。   5555s.com 5555s.com 5555s.comtags: Photofunnia,  5555s.com,  michael jackson,  shanghai building falls over,  9/11 conspiracy,  building collapse, government conspiracy, 9/11 truth,  osamabinladen in china, shanghai collapse

They should just leave it flat. Looks better, no elevator needed. Maybe its cheaper now? I'd get a flat.

No disrespect to the dead but When I saw these pics, I immediately thought of Buster Keaton in Steamboat Bill Jr when the house fell on him and he popped right out the window. Comic potential is endless when a complex falls on you!

rob - i'm not sure if the guy was in the building or on the ground when the thing fell... but imagine being on the 13th floor when this happened?!?

one of my kung fu brothers is a civil engineer and I heard about how corrupt this industry can be, he told me a story about a certain company skimming a bit on the length of a certain skyscraper's foundation and the authories found out and they had to demolish the building... now I know why
