The death toll in the collapse of a platform under construction at a power plant in eastern China has rise to 74, with two others injured, as China’s chief safety inspector arrived to oversee an investigation, state media said on Friday.
State news agency Xinhua said 68 of the 74 dead have been identified so far, with victims ranging in age from 23 to 53.
The accident happened on Thursday morning in Fengcheng, in Jiangxi province, during work on a cooling tower for the coal-fired power plant.
The official China Daily newspaper said the accident happened when a tower crane collapsed, triggering the collapse of the entire construction platform as the night shift was being relieved by the morning shift.
“We will conduct a serious investigation into the cause of the accident and hold those who are responsible accountable,” Jiangxi vice governor Li Yihuang was quoted as saying.
The company in charge of the plant, Jiangxi Ganneng Co, said in a stock exchange filing on Thursday it was cooperating with authorities.
