This is a horrible and needless .........

Tragedy ................   

The scaffold was bamboo and the safety netting inflammable ...........

Welders accidentally (allegedly unlicensed) set light to the scaffold and netting and this travelled up the outside of the building setting windows alight as it went .............................

That type of scaffold never looks safe and here is the proof .............


But our thoughts must be with the victims and survivors and their sorrow ...........

Let us hope the lesson has been learned ............

Hey Marrion ................

A lot of people went for the base jump on 911 ..............

Without the parachute ..............

Sadly no heroic success stories though  ...............

I tried to post earlier this morning ut for some reason the post was blocked by the filter.

The post was simply to echo others here about the tragic circumstances and the very unfortunate loss of a great number of lives.

Also, makes me cherish how lucky I am with my own family - I live only a few blocks away in Jing an district from the site of the fire.

I am sorry to hear that. In face of disaste, life is so fragile that We should cherish everyday we have.
