At least 74 people were killed in Fengcheng China (South China), as a scaffolding collapsed during construction work at a power plant, on Thursday November 24.

The incident occurred at around 7:30 a.m. local time when a falling crane brought down a work platform inside a cooling tower that was being added to the Ganneng Fengcheng coal-fired power plant.

This has been recorded as the single most serious industrial disaster in China since a landslide at a waste tip in Shenzhen, which killed 81 people.
