A construction site in southern China where a subway line was being built has collapsed, killing 8 people and leaving 3 missing.
The collapse happened in the Guangdong province in Foshan, an industrial area undergoing rapid expansion near the financial centre of Hong Kong.
Its is believed an area the size of 2 basketball courts sank in the collapse, in a central area of the city, right under an 8 lane road.
