At least 18 people are dead and another 18 are injured after a massive crane collapsed at a construction site in southern China.
Authorities say the 80-ton crane fell directly onto a two-story temporary building in Dongguan during a strong windstorm.
A spokesperson for the rescue effort told state media Thursday that 139 construction workers were inside the building when the crane collapsed early Wednesday. As of Thursday morning, 18 people were still hospitalized, and four were reported in serious but stable condition.
