Rescuers are searching for more survivors and police said they have detained the owner.



The eight-story building in Wangcheng District, which has a floor area of about 700 square meters, toppled at Friday noon. It housed a restaurant, a coffee shop, a hotel, and several apartments, according to preliminary investigations.

Following an increase in the number of illegally-constructed building collapses in recent years, Xi said that it is necessary to check on such structures to investigate any hidden dangers and fix them in a timely manner to prevent the occurrence of major accidents.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang also said it is necessary to carefully identify the cause of the accident, and hold accountable those responsible in accordance with laws and regulations.

Li urged all local authorities to conduct in-depth investigation and rectification of hidden safety hazards in the construction industry, especially illegally-constructed buildings for business operations.


The exact cause of the collapse is still under investigation, but it is reported that the tenants had made structural changes to the building.

Huang Ming, minister of emergency management, in a video conference on Saturday morning, called for inspection of work safety to prevent further accidents.

“Related departments should crack down on illegal and irregular building activities such as unauthorized construction and unauthorized alteration of the main structure, to prevent collapses and other similar accidents,” said Huang.

On Saturday, Chinese State Councilor Wang Yong led a team to Changsha to guide rescue and emergency response.
