Cave-in at China subway construction site kills 2

Cave-in at China subway construction site kills 2

Chinese state media say a subway station under construction in western China caved in, killing two workers.
China Central Television said the cave-in occurred Sunday morning at the Sajin Bridge subway station in Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi province.
CCTV showed rescue workers lifting a body wrapped in a red blanket out of the ground and onto a stretcher. It was taken away in an ambulance.
Poor construction quality is a chronic problem in China and is often blamed on bad planning, shoddy work or theft of materials.
