This is a pretty amazing video of a huge sinkhole that collapses killing one worker. Article says that the sinkhole started the day before and the workers were trying to reinforce the hole so it didn't collapse, but it did and one of the workers that was in the hole was killed.

Video of collapse



Another article



What is going on today? Yet another tragic and frightening disaster video has gone viral on the Chinese internet today, showing the moment earlier this morning when an urban rail construction site in Dongguan suddenly and finally collapsed.
According to Apple Daily, the site had partially collapsed the day before opening up a gargantuan sink hole. As workers tried to repair the damage and reinforce the site earlier today, it finally completely collapsed, shaking the entire neighborhood in the process and killing one worker underground.
This is the fifth collapse in just the past three years within 4 kilometers of the site, with each one more devastating than the last.
Watch the terrifying video here and just refrain from going outside today:

It's amazing only one person was lost in that collapse. Tragic nonetheless, but somehow still a blessing that all others involved survived.

Between their failing economy, all the massive explosions and the literally collapsing infrastructure... China needs a damn hug this year.

It's called high-tech warfare. Cause chaos without firing a bullet. Seen the value of the Yuan lately?

Then again, they likely did this all by themselves.

Made In China.

I feel bad for the workers who are put into such a dangerous situation (which shouldn't have to be that dangerous in the first place).

So we're unleashing HAARP on them?

I don't recall in my life time hearing or seeing so many massive sink holes. In just the past few years it seems like you hear about one every few months. The earth is definitely trying to tell us something or their is something manmade causing this.

It's called growing too quickly. The population of the Earth is increasing exponentially, which is in turn adding more and more buildings, roads, homes, etc...which then leads to resources being used faster i.e., more digging for utilities, pumping more water out of aquifers, etc...which leads to things like this.

It's just like with storms now. People think they are getting more frequent, when in reality they are decreasing but we just have more people around to witness and report them.

I dunno. Maybe HAARP? Like I already said, they likely did this to themselves. This is nothing new for China. Less than a month ago a similar incident occurred at a fuel storage facility. Big blast, but fewer deaths...or so we are told.

Unreal. You keep on thinking like this. Slowly but surely you are becoming the minority as people wake the #@* up! This entire summer, almost every day, Good Morning America has led off with headlines about storms, floods and wildfires and yet you believe this is because - just this year- there is finally enough people to report on it more. LMAO!

I've posted many times over the past three years about these explosions and how they will continue to increase in frequency and intensity along with sinkholes, quakes, volcanoes, die offs, disease and extreme weather, and sure enough, it has all been increasing and I have been spot on with my predictions. That doesn't mean I am correct with the causation...although I 100% believe I am correct...it is happening nonetheless. Read my past threads posted from my book Fever Rising and my dangerous gas theory thread I posted in December of 2012...It's all happening and occurrences are more and more to the point they are now making the nightly news headlines. Hard to ignore and will get even more difficult as these explosions, sinkholes and weather events begin to affect each and everyone of us personally. That day is coming soon.

Yeah, I dunno. I have a feeling it's all racked up to corruption and a serve lack of safety laws in China, and other places around the world where this crap happens. And at the end of the day, people are just people. We all make mistakes. Also, s#!t happens!

That said, perhaps more and more of us are making them as more and more (possibly) intelligent people are killed through this kind of randomness. Talk about brain drain!

I'm not exactly sure these things are on the rise either though. Do you have stats to back up this theory?

It is very interesting that only at the beginning of this week though, the Chinese Yuan was beginning to bottom out of its valuation. Very suspect, but who knows.
