This occurred around 7 am in Fengcheng, and rescue operations are underway.

This is only the latest in a series of deadly industrial incidents in China.  

The vast majority of these are caused by a lack of enforcement, favouring economic growth over enforced standards.  Last year, Tianjin was rocked by massive explosions, caused mainly by illegal storing of chemicals.

The Tianjin event led to widespread anger in China, especially China’s failed attempt to censor coverage of the aftermath and investigation into the causes leading to the deaths of over 170 people.

The investigation exposed top party cadre and Tianjin clique leader, Li Ruihan, as the 55% owner of the company responsible for the deaths.

Stay Tuned for updates.
