The prowess of Chinese engineers has resulted in another Middle Kingdom marvel, in the form of this spectacular building collapse; so expert was the construction of the structure’s foundations that the collapse occurred cleanly and without much damage to the structure, breaking neatly at the base.

The structure itself was a 13-storey Shanghai apartment building, still under construction, built alongside a number of identical developments, the owners of which are likely eyeing their own foundations with no small trepidation.

Investigations into cause of the collapse are ongoing, though it hardly takes much insight to realise the likely reason.

Only one worker was horribly crushed when the structure fell, as nobody had yet moved in.
