Eleven People Killed in Elevator Crash

A construction accident in northern China has claimed the lives of 11 people and 2 others were injured when a lift fell.

The incident happened at a residential development construction site in the Taocheng district of Hengshui, Hebei province.

The incident is under investigation by work safety and construction authorities.

Reports from eye-witnesses revealed that the incident happened in a matter of seconds, when they heard a big bang and realised the lift had fallen.

The demand for housing in China has given the residential construction industry a massive boost and the country’s construction industry is known for speedy building, which can sometimes result in accidents.
