Beijing government has assigned a special team to investigate the construction site accident occurred at a formwork and scaffolding construction site at Tsinghua High School campus' south side at around 8:20 a.m. on Dec. 29, 2014.
Ten workers were killed and another four injured in this accident, local authorities said.
The findings of the initial investigation indicate that screwed steel bars, used to reinforce concrete structures, collapsed and caused the accident.
According to the Beijing municipal government, police detained people "directly responsible for the accident", but did not give more details about their identities.
All the injured were taken to nearby hospitals for medical attention, and are in stable condition.
An injured woman surnamed Zhang is being treated at the No.306 Hospital of the People's Liberation Army. When the accident happened, she and her husband were busy binding the steel bars together.
"The scaffolding collapsed suddenly, and I heard loud noises," she recalled.
The school said no students were injured.
Beijing Mayor Wang Anshun and other officials arrived at the formwork and scaffolding construction site as the investigation continues.
Tsinghua High School is a school attached to China's famous Tsinghua University. It will celebrate its 100th birthday next year.
"The Spring Festival, or the Chinese New Year, will be celebrated soon. I'm very sad that ten workers lost their lives, and their families will never see their day of reunion," a user named "Rondo" wrote on China's twitter-like Sina Weibo.
We strongly appealing to the construction site management pay much attention to the workers’ safety during the formwork and scaffolding work on site. Life is only once to everyone, safety policy is not overemphasized any time.
May the dead rest.
