Crane collapse kills seven, injures two in southern Chinese city

The collapse occurred on July 22 at the construction site for the southern headquarters of the state-owned China Communications Construction Co. Ltd. in the city of Guangzhou, said the city's Haizhu district. Investigators were looking into how it happened, the district said in an online statement.

The company could not be reached for comment on July 23. The district said the two injured were in stable condition.

Although there has been improvement in recent years, work safety remains a major concern in China where regulations are often ignored partly because of casual attitudes and partly because of corruption.
