A cave-in at a subway line construction site in southern China has claimed the lives of 8 people while 3 others are still missing.
The government confirmed that 9 workers were rescued and were in a stable condition in Guangdong province, near Hong Kong.
The collapse occurred beneath an 8 lane road in the central area of the city, sinking at least 6 metres.
According to reports the pipes were leaking and water had been entering the site. Workers were attempting to plug the leaks but caused a pipe to burst, which ultimately led to the collapse.
