Beijing, April 5 (IANS) A young Chinese woman is fighting for her life after falling into scalding water when a section of pavement collapsed on a Beijing street.
Yang Erjing, 27, was walking on Beilishi Road when the ground gave way and she fell into 90 C water, which had leaked from underground heating pipes, China Daily reported Thursday.
Local residents had reported steam rising from the pavement earlier and pipe repairs were already under way further along the street.
Yang, a clothing store manager and mother of a seven-month-old child, was rushed to a hospital where she was reported to be in a deep coma, suffering serious burns to 99 percent of her body.
