Four injured in Beijing overpass collapse

An overpass connecting two buildings of a furniture mall in northern Beijing collapsed Sunday afternoon, leaving four people injured, local authorities said.

The corridor outside a Red Star Macalline Furniture Mall in northern Chaoyang District collapsed at about 4 p.m., the district government said.

The four injured have been sent to hospital and they are in stable condition.

Residents nearby told Xinhua that taxi drivers and vendors often rest in the shade of the corridor.

Excavators have arrived to help clear the site.
