22 buildings and at least 41 people have been swallowed up by an enormous landslide in the industrial park Liuxi in Shenzhen, southern China.
The landslide triggrered the explosion of a gas station which probably led to the destruction of buildings and homes. 1’500 rescuers are on site clearing debris and searching for victims.
Look at this building… It collapses like a sand castle:
A nearby section of China’s major West-East natural gas pipeline also exploded. Apocalypse now:
The enormous landslide took place on December 20, 2015. at 11:40 local time (6:40 MSK) in the industrial park Liuxi (“Lucy”).
