New apartment buiding in China collapses - pictures

A new unoccupied building under construction at Lianhuanan Road in the Minxing district of Shanghai city toppled over. One worker was killed. It might be related t the collapse of a retaining wall on the site.

Regardless of that, just what sort of foundations did they have for the building? Looking at the images, there seemed to be none with the pipes going directly in soil. I wouldn't trust my life in the rest of the complex.

I heard the base wasn't connected to solid rock underneath. Thus it was built on top of loose dirt, either way that contractor has probably been eliminated by the Chinese government.
