Chinese prosecutors have arrested seven construction managers and safety supervisors over a deadly Oct. 28 cableway accident in Chongqing. An investigation found that the accused allegedly allowed 23 workers on the bridge project to be transported in a container not rated for lifting. A cable holding the container snapped, sending 11 workers to their deaths and injuring the remaining 12. Investigators say workers complained three days earlier about the rigging, and local officials had ordered supervisors to stop using the container for hoisting.
