I know I’m a couple days late in posting about this story, but here it is anyway. This story seemed to be somewhat viral among the foreigners on my wechat, but I didn’t see any local friends talking about it and it was buried down in the depths of the Hohhot News feeds, not even a headlining story. But, since many foreigners seemed interested in it, I thought I’d post it here.
The basic details are that an explosion happened, causing one death, one serious injury and a portion of the south second ring road to collapse. The exact location was reported as the intersection of the second ring road and Shi Yang Bridge Road. I’m not exactly sure of the details of the incident other than it involved welding and flammable gas. One article about the incident is below in Chinese.
