I posted a blog a few weeks ago with a similar story; a construction accident in a developing country where someone is “being held.”  The common theme is that blame is the focus with no mention of actually fixing the problem.  In this story, officials are “embarrassed.”  Can you say SCAPEGOAT?

They should be embarrassed.  They should be embarrassed that they don’t have good systems to prevent such incidents.  Meanwhile people are being hurt and killed. 

I’m not sure I would want to be a construction supervisor or safety manager in this environment; you might end up in jail!
