Wow! You find the most amazing pictures EVER! Clap-clap-clap. Was anyone hurt? Did it crash down in a second, or do a leaning PIsa for a while...

I can't take credit for finding this one. It came from a reader.

Google search reveals only one worker died. It was apparently a new building so I'm guessing that it was still empty.

great find!

Holy Guacamole! Not that it fell down, but that it looks like it was laid over sideways like a slice of cake on a plate. Amazing!

1. Those pilings look like PVC pipe.

2. Didn't we all just hear China paying lip service to better building codes after that mass-casualty producing earthquake?

Hey, nothing wrong with THEIR building codes. The building stayed intact after all, it just fell over! Does anyone know if it happened suddenly or if there was some warning [leaning] before it went over?
