August 14, a man suffered over 65 percent burns over his body surface, after a sidewalk collasped sending him to a pit with boiling water in Dalian city, northeast China’s Liaoning province.
The similar mishap ever occurred in this Apil in Beijing where a 28-year-old woman died after fatally scalded in sidewalk collapse too.
According to eye-witnesses, when the man was pulled out from the pit by a passer-by, he still had consciousness and could talk.
He is now out of danger after rushing to a nearby hospital.
Local police has cordoned off the site, and started investigation into the case. But hot water leaked from an underground thermal pipeline could be the culpit again for the accident.
