Blind Builder's Bridge Collapses

From Sky News:

Two Chinese officials who let a blind man build a bridge which collapsed during construction have been jailed.

The contractor altered blueprints without getting them checked by a professional, causing the crossing to fall apart, injuring 12 people.

Head of the local authority Huang Wenge and colleague Xia Jianzhong have been sentenced to 18 months and one year respectively for not stopping the project.

Analysts say China will be the next superpower. With people like this, I'm not so sure.
