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.

Losses were calculated at $15.6 million.

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