BUILDING FALLS OVER

In Shanghai, a newly build and thankfully unoccupied high rise overlooking the Dianpu River suddenly and, so far without explanation, fell over like a domino.  Only one person was killed in what could have been a horrific tragedy.

Although no cause of the strange collapse is immediately apparent, many blame the recent flooding of the Dianpu River while others point to the practice of using subpar construction techniques in China's race to urbanization.
