Death Toll in China Subway Cave-In Rises to 7

From AP:

The death toll from the cave-in of a subway tunnel under construction in eastern China rose to seven Monday, while new cracks near the site raised worries of further collapses, state media and local authorities said.

Rescuers searched for 14 workers still trapped under the rubble after a 250-foot-wide section of road over the construction site collapsed in the eastern city of Hangzhou on Saturday, Xinhua News Agency said.

Xinhua said new cracks were seen near the section of tunnel that collapsed, prompting authorities to take measures to prevent further damage.
