At least seven people have been killed and two others injured when a crane leaned and collapsed on a construction site in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, authorities said.


The crane collapsed late Saturday at the construction site for the southern headquarters of the state-owned China Communications Construction Co Ltd., which builds infrastructure and provides urban development.

The city's Haizhu district said that the investigators are looking into how it happened. The company could not be reached for comment Sunday, reports AP.

Work safety is a major concern in China where safety regulations are often ignored.
