    Building Collapsed In Shanghai (06/27/2009)

    this is from a forward email.

    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.

    Never heard/seen such thing before in my life, unbelievable ... or is't a hoax or some sort of.

    This is how the whole shanghai is built? :blum3:

    It doesn't seem to be a hoax. Here is a link on web with high resolution photographs.

    Surprisingly, no major news have covered this. But, if this is true, which it might be given the quality of Chinese products, it will be a major image damage to China's building prowess.
