Crowds flee as five-storey factory dorm collapses in southern China

A crowd of people had a lucky escape when a five-storey dorm building collapsed at a factory in southern China.

Startling footage, filmed in the city of Guangzhou in Guangdong Province, shows over a dozen of people running away to escape when the wall from the top floor of the building suddenly topples over.

According to reports, the top floor of the dorm building was being decorated, but the workers had finished for the day when the incident happened.

Two people were injured and are being treated in hospital, while a number of vehicles parked underneath the building were damaged.
