According to an eyewitness who also spoke to Xinhua, a construction firm, which was reshaping roads in the community, had left trenches so close to the walls along the roads.

“Each time it rains, we see the walls tilting towards the road, making it very dangerous. This morning, while three workers of the construction firm were working in the trench, the wall collapsed on them,” they said.

A combined team of officials from NADMO and the area’s local government later came in to demolish all the walls along the road under construction.
