WTF?





"At around 5:30am on June 27, an unoccupied building still under construction at Lianhuanan Road in the Minhang district of Shanghai city toppled over. One worker was killed. According to information, a 70 meter section of the flood prevention wall in nearby Dianpu River and that may have something to do with this building collapse."

Can you believe this? Thats what you get in China for ignoring western building standards. How come everything in China can either poison you or fall on you? They don't even have a giant monster problem like Japan. What would have happened if there had been a typhoon or earthquake in the area? How many of the nearby cookie cutter buildings are in danger of falling? I am most amazed that the structure fell in virtually ONE PIECE. Thanks to the 'Daily What' another of my daily go-to sights. Hard to believe that only one person died in this accident.

That was very bizarre! Shouldn't it have crumbled as it collapsed??? So weird.
