China Sentences 31 People for Deadly Construction Accident

A building site collapse in China last November that left 73 people dead has led to 31 people being arrested and punished.
The incident happened when a work platform collapsed at the Fengcheng power plant in eastern China’s Jiangxi Province.
According to reports by Chinese news agencies, coercive measures are a form of detention that can range from constant surveillance to outright arrest.

Losses were calculated at $15.6 million.

Investigations revealed that the accident was caused by a range of issues such as poor supervision and the company’s failure to meet safety responsibilities.

The people being punished by the government have not yet been named.

Another incident happened on Saturday, 16 September when a railway tunnel in China’s southwest collapsed.

Nine construction workers were rescued from the rubble.

It was reported that 200 workers were involved in the rescue, digging tunnels to reach the affected workers.
