An under-construction section of a subway station in western China has collapsed killing two people, according to Chinese state media.
China Central Television has said a portion of the Sajin Bridge subway station in Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi province, caved in claiming the lives of two workers, while two others are said to be missing.
Pictures of a body wrapped in red blanket lifted by rescue workers out of the wreckage were revealed later.
The accident is being investigated and authorities have called for a safety check along the entire subway line. Workers at the site said rains during previous days could be a reason for the tragedy.
Low quality construction, often due to bad planning, shoddy work or theft of materials, have resulted in a number of accidents in China in the recent past.
