China really is the pits when it comes to elf and safety. On the bright side, chickens could be shipped ready roasted.

Blocked emergency exits seems very common in Asian fires: whether it's a nightclub, department store or factory, it seems to be a factor each and every time. Fire inspections are either non-existent, ineffective or the inspectors are just paid off.

Profits before people every time...

Reuters has the following in their report:

Hong Kong's Phoenix Television cited family members as saying that the doors were always kept locked during working hours during which workers were forbidden to leave and that the slaughterhouse never carried out fire drills.

If true, then this was a crime.
