The death toll from Wednesday morning’s crane collapse in Dongguan city, apparently caused by strong winds, has risen to 18. A local official revealed that a gantry crane at a construction site collapsed and destroyed an adjacent work shed, which was being used as a dormitory for 139 workers. Many minor injuries were suffered, and at least 15 people remain in hospital. The official said the company responsible for the construction work has allocated a special fund of 20 million yuan in compensation.
